[Five of these were FPN Group Buy pens; the other two (3rd from top and very bottom) came via an online Australian retailer...]


Might i ask which Australian retailer?

JustWrite.com.au - but I don't think they sell Ranga pens any more.

Dear FPNers, let me show You the three Ranga pens I ordered in this group buy. They all came in a nice silk box, together with a present - Oliver exam demonstrator pen. 

 

I think the pens are excellent. 

 

These are my first ebonite pens and I like the ebonite very much. It feels warm in hand, and seems to be anti-scratchy. Much better than plastic.

 

Model 8 pens are very ergonomic.

 

These photos are made in day light. The colours of all pens in reality is more pale. 

 

The colours are: Bamboo - pale green; Model 8 - one is orange + black section and the other is Rose Red – Mauve Ripple (colour N 13 from the top post). I would say that the rose red-mauve pen is in fact a beautiful combination of red and dark blue.

 

The pens write excellent, it is a pleasure to use them.

 

I admire the artisan of making these beautiful pens!

If anyone is looking to get a Ranga but don't want to pay top dollar, send me a PM I would have a 3C for sale in mint condition (M Jovo nib). I just don't use my fountain pens much anymore and got a Lamy 2000. 


Pens: Ranga Model 3C, Kaweco Classic Sport, Pilot Metropolitan, Lamy Al-Star, Fellowship Blackbird (ground to crisp italic)

In the Mail: Hero 565, Jinhao 159, Wing Wung 233, Wing Sung 590
