2018-04-02_20-21-18_364.jpg 2018-04-02_20-21-07_621.jpg Hello all,

 

Find below pictures of my latest acquisition: Ranga 8B in solid forest green(with black specks) with no. 6 screw in jowo B nib.  

 

The whole process of ordering the pen was enjoyable with the very affable, courteous and unpretentious Mr. MP Kandan, helping with every question of mine in real quick time on whatsapp.  I chose the colour as I did not have any ebonite with solid colour and am very happy with the decision.  The black specks are few and far between and don't bother much.

 

The finish is superlative.  As can be seen from the photos even the threads on the nib section and on the barrel are solidly finished.

 

One gets a sense of assurance of the build quality when the cap is opened.  No wiggles whatsoever.  The balance is great despite the enormous size, the lightness of the ebonite material helping very much.  The hour shaped nib section is ergonomic, my first pen with such nib section.  I chose the clipless version since I do not intend to carry the pen out of my house or office.

 

I have pictured the pen next to a foot rule and also the ubiquituous Lamy 2000 so that one gets an idea of the size.  Very happy with the purchase and thanks to the craftmanship of Mr. M S Pandurangan.  Looking forward to buying more pens from the Rangs stable.

 

 

Thanks for reading.

Great looking ebonite, Gampu! The green is so dark and elegant, it's almost neutral. I wouldn't call the size "enormous," though it's definitely a large pen.
