I have posted this before, I do not have the same photo uncapped, I will have to take it sooner or later... :)

from left to right

Ranga 5 mottled brown

Ranga 3 (flat top) mottled green

Ranga 4C (rounded ends) pink swirl bakul

Ranga 3C olive swirl bakul

Ranga 3C olive swirl polished

Aurora Talentum (as size comparison)

 

The main difference between the 3 and the 4 (whether C or not) is the step down between section and barrel.

The 4 has the step down the 3 does not.

That looks good on the 4 when the pen is closed (flush)

But can be annoying depending where you place your fingers. The 4 still has quite a long section so it is unlikley your fingers will be on the step down. My preference still goes to the 3 for the lack of step down.

 

here is the 4

and the 3

mpkandan,
 
I ordered a 5" pen number 3C & reduce diameter of whole pen.
I would like to change to NO CLIP.
Please make pen without a clip.
It was red/yellow #17 ebonite pen
Thank You

Dave G.

Will take a note of that

Does anyone know what color/pattern of premium ebonite picture #7 (on the far right) in the first picture is? I love that pattern, but it doesn't look like any of the listed colors.

That was limited edition ....model 5.
Hope to see that soon in future

Any possibility of getting a Jowo nib instead of Bock?  Bock nibs are great, but they write too wide for me.

Dear Mr. Antsy sir,

 

This Group Buy price is for Bock nib versions only. You can try Bock Fine or Extra Fine nib.

 Jowo nib versions are available in regular price.

Dear Sir,

 

  We cannot reduce diameter of the whole pen. It would be another model 3CS.

  We can reduce the diameter of the section if you need.

Would it be possible to make a model 5 but to put a vintage Waterman nib of # 2 or # 4?

That will be custom order and for that you will have to place order outside the Group Buy ...

I understand!  Oh well.  The last couple of group buys I seen have been for Bock - hope they bring back the Jowos one of these days.
