Hey @IndigoBOB, I'm glad you've gone for a Triveni Jr - like you, I find the full-length version a bit too long to be practical (especially as a pocket-carry pen), but the shorter model is spot-on.  Very similar in length to the Himalaya, and can be posted if you find the body of the pen a bit short in the hand.  Interested to see what you end up with - any chance of a picture down the track?

I'd love to post a picture.  I requested a Green Ebonite Triveni Jr.  I wanted the Blue, but it was sold out.

 

Yah, I definitely like the size of the Himalaya a lot.  I agree with you on the size:  That is that Medium Small size where It's easily portable, but I can still use it unposted as a full sized pen and that hits the sweet spot for me, but if I need to post it isn't awful at all.

 

The Himalaya is a favorite of mine.  I did find myself loving the dimensions of the section of the Triveni, which from the measurements posted on the website seem to be identical to the Triveni Jr.  Once again, with the good taper to a descent lip, it hits another sweet spot IMO, and when you add Swappable Jowo's, ebonite material, solid original FPR nibs...  These are some solid writing instruments.

 

I do actually want to do a review on the Himalaya.  I've had a lot of time with it and have experimented with it.  I have been able to try out some high priced pens, get nibs done by the great nibmeisters, and I found that I just gravitated to my Himalaya.  I'd rate it an "A" territory at this point.  I wasn't expecting to like it so much.  I prefer ebonite, I prefer the Medium Small Size, and it writes wet with pleasant feedback, is reliable and has been sturdy.

If I close my eyes my Triveni Jr. with flex nib gives a very similar feel and line as my Pelikan M120 Fine nib, which is very similar to the M200. Almost identical size and weight. The M120 section may be just a bit more thin... The biggest difference is the Triveni has sharper corners, sharper threads, etc...

How many revolutions does it take to unscrew/screw on the cap?

My ebonite Triveni Jr requires 4 turns; the acrylic version requires 3
