Hello Kandan M.P.:

 

Are you sending tracking numbers to buyers upon shipment?

 

"We have very limited number of pens. Pens would be shipped in 1 week from payment. So No waiting time . Enjoy the benefit of Group buy price with no waiting time"

My payment was sent on 4/4/18, so it would seem my Pen should have shipped at the latest on Weds. 4/11, or Thurs 4/12...

 

I have not received any tracking number or notice of shipment....can you forward me the tracking number?

 

Thank-you in advance,

 

Bill

I love the look of the rounded Majestic, but at nearly 7", I think it would be too big for me to use as an everyday writer. If this style (shape, proportions, trim, etc.) were ever offered in a pen closer to the size of a Model 3, however, I'd snatch one up in a heartbeat. <3

Dear All,

 

  Our Postal office  is closed  up for Software upgrade for a week and it is reopening on Monday.

  So the shipment will start  on Monday (16th April). Pens are ready.

  Apologies for the slight delay which is not in our control.

Here you go....

This is a custom Ranga that didn't cost any extra and I got it in about 15 days form India.

<Not kidding>

 

It's called a 3CS (clipless) that was special ordered at 5 inches long.

The "S" in the 3CS means smaller diameter section than the regular 3C.

 

This pen is very well made.

The threads are nearly perfect (Better than the Edison)

Ranga 3CS-5" clipless

FPR Triveni Jr.

 

Yes...I like smaller pens. :D

Yeah, I can't wait to see this behemoth. I once asked a very prominent pen maker here in the America if he could add a clip to one of his oversized pens and he said it couldn't be done. Kind of curious how Ranga does it.

@Nail-Bender, I really like the look of that FPR Triveni! Is that the brown ebonite - and does it really have a bit of a 'burnt orange' or orange/brown cast to it, or is that a trick of the light?  Thanks!

The 1st pic was taken under flourescent light.

This is a natural light pic and I'd say that it does have just a bit of an orange tint to it but not much.

I switched the clip out for a Himalayan one because I thought it looked cheap.

The Himalayan clip is a perfect fit on the Triveni.

Thanks for that - it's still (to my eyes) a richer, more attractive brown than my original FPR Triveni (which I'd characterise as a more mustard-brown, almost khaki?).  I don't need another FPR pen right now (if I keep telling myself that, I may eventually believe it!) - but if that changes, the brown ebonite Triveni will be in my line of sight...

That's great to hear.  I am loving how this majestic pen looks especially with the black two ends but I too feel that this size would be too big for me.  I will wait until a smaller version comes out, I think, before I order. Your pens are just stunningly beautiful.
