Hi Mr. Kandan,

 

Do you have any plans for another group buy soon? I need an eyedropper pen for Bock nibs, but I find majestic too big for me.

Thank you Sir,

 

Just a quick question about your name. Is Kandan your personal of family name? So should you be Mr Kandan, Mr P or something else entirely? What do you prefer?

 

Regards,

 

Steve

That's a clone of mine, looks like. I got it last week and have just filled it up. What a monster! it's not longer than the Varuna, but definitely substantially wider.

These two dwarf anything that before them, I thought were big pens. Like the Asa Naukas of transparent acrylic. And the Gama Jumbo.

The #6 nib appears really small on a big pen like that. That would be a perfect pen for a bigger nib like a #8.

 

The #6 look like a #5.

You're right, and with this one, that's even more true than for the Varuna. Have you tried fitting a #8?

Trouble for me is, I ordered the Bock stub nib and I don't have a stub #8. Not sure even if the existing nib would come out of the housing...

My Ranga Majestic arrived this morning, well packaged and in good order.

 

This . is . an . awesome . pen .

 

It is also freaking huge. The photo's don't really convey the sheer size of this pen. In an emergency it could be recruited as an extra stump for a cricket match. But, despite the size, at 46 grams it is nowhere near my heaviest pen (that goes to the Blackstone Maxim at 79 grams). In my admittedly large hands is is quite comfortable to hold and the feel of the ebonite is noticeably more pleasant than standard resins.

 

I dipped the nib in some blue Quink and had a write and it wrote perfectly. The black #6 Jowo 1.1 stub looks tiny but writes like a charm, with a noticeably thinner line than the #6 Goulet Pens 1.1 stub that I have in one of my Jinhao pens.

 

Did I say this pen is awesome?

 

And there was a bonus Oliver 3R eyedropper pen. Perfectly normal but dwarfed against the Majestic.  :D

Chin up Tony, I am a lot closer than you, possibly even closer that Europe. Your pen will turn up in the fullness of time.  :)

Pens that shipped the same day as mine were delivered a month ago to other US addresses and 2 weeks ago to South American addresses.

Replacement pen arrived today!   Shipping around the world can be quite an adventure.   Mr. Kandan worked with me and took care of me.   I don't understand what happened, the original pen was returned to Ranga almost 9 weeks after shipping.   The replacement pen arrived less than 1 week after shipment.   

 

The pen is HUGE.  I'm looking forward to learning how it writes.
