    Can a nib be smoothed by psychokinesis?

Any chance I can get the grip (section) diameters for these models?

I'm so excited about my first Ranga (Bakul black Model 8), my first group buy and my first post on FPN :)

What would be the approximate arrival time for an order placed now (shipped within India)? And till when will the group buy go on?
I only ask because I might go for more pens after getting the first one.

Hi

I know it's not listed as an option but I love the torpedo shape of the Model 8 and because I collect demonstrator pens I wondered if it would be possible to order it as an acrylic demonstrator ideally with polished finials but without would also be good.

Thanks

Al

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!!


Gryphon 1911...that's the Demonstrator I have and It's, by far, the best pen I've ever had. Not a lick of trouble since I've had it. Beautiful quality and awesome writer. I have the JOWO Broad (awesome)...but your Bock Nib should be even better.

Yes this is 3 in 1 mechanism.. you can use it as eyedropper, with converter or cartridge

 

Thank you!  This makes it so much easier to order!

 

I have submitted forms for one regular Bamboo demo and one Model 8 in Rose Red-Mustard.

Usually the pen is shipped within 4 to 5 weeks within India after payment..
And the group buy will be active till 7th July

In the Bamboo's link, it states

 

Regular Size - Barrel has 16 mm dia & Length is 5.75 inches when capped
Giant Size -   Barrel has 17 mm to 18.75 mm (depends on ebonite rod colour) dia & Length is 7 inches when capped

Neither describes the grip diameter.  The Designer has similar info. 

In the model 8's link, it states

 

  • Length Capped - 146 mm approx
  • Cap Dia - 14 mm
  • Barrel Dia - 12.5 mm
  • Hourglass shape Grip Section

No mention of the grip/section width.  The Zeal is described as

 

The dimension is 5.75 inches length. the dia is 16 mm

I assume that 16mm is the diameter at the body's widest, not at the grip.

I told myself I wasn't going to do it - I tried to convince myself I have enough pens already :unsure: , but...

 

I have a few spare Bock nib assemblies, that simply aren't getting used - and I like the look of the Model 8 pen (though not so much the clip) :rolleyes: .  So I've ordered one, without nib and without clip, in the teal-and-black 'special' ebonite.

Yep - and I hold you (partly) responsible, @mehandiratta. You've cost me a pretty penny with all these group buys! ;)
