Hi @mehandiratta and @mpkandan, thanks for initiating yet another Group Buy - I've only just received my Model 4 yesterday, so am not sure if I'm up for another pen right now, but... a couple of questions that may help me (and others) make a decision:

 

(1) What is the price difference if we order a pen without the Bock nib assembly (you offer this option in the Google order form, and I have a few spare Bock nib units already)?

(2) What is the *additional* cost for those who want to order a Gold 18K nib instead of steel?

(3) Why, oh why isn't the blue-white swirl available any more? [It's OK, there are other colours I like too - but this combination looks pretty special!]

The pen sans the Nib threaded to take Bock nib will cost US$14 less and 18k gold nib set you back by US$ 185

Thanks @mehandiratta - good to know!  Will give myself some time to reflect on this - I already have a regular Bamboo pen, and the only other option on offer that appeals to me (without the clip) is the Model 8.

I was about to order a Bamboo but on the google forms it didn't list the solid cherry red. Is that an omission on the forms or on the listing of available colors above?

 

Thanks.

I've always wanted a Giant Bamboo demonstrator - this seems like the perfect opportunity.

 

Got the one with the matte/bakul outside, polished finials and a broad nib.  Excited!   :D

 

Thank you for coordinating this effort!!

Thank you, Vaibhav!

 

I have submitted my order for a bamboo in cherry red, bakul finish with polished finials and a bold 2-toned nib.

 

I love my 4 and 4C but have always admired the lines of the bamboo.

 

Thank you also for coordinating such a colossal group buy and to Ranga Pens for making such beautiful pens available at a great price!

Looking at the previous buy descriptions, they do not all say 3-in-1 filling mechanisms.  I'm assuming they are all made the same, so would not all the models be 3-in-1?
