Came back from Chennai, here's what I got :)

aGhQUHA.jpg

The pens are all Gama pens except the first one which I found out was a Baoer Skywalker pen.

I got all of the Gama pens from NSC Bose Road, the Baoer was from a store called Variety Pen in Pondy Bazaar, T Nagar. Unfortunately there was a shop I wanted to go to, called Pen Point there but the shop was closed. Perhaps I went on the wrong day.

The Jinhao ink (150 rupees) was obtained from the aforementioned Variety Pen, the Camlin Scarlet Red (20 rupees) was actually in a shop called Jinnah Stationery in Pondicherry. The Waterman Absolute Brown (425 rupees) I got from Makoba on Nungambakkam High Road.

Nibs were from Krishna Mart on NSC Bose Road as well. Got 1 Wality nib and 3 #5 nibs, all for about 125 rupees.

The Baoer pen was 290 rupees and the Gama pens were all less than 200 rupees each.

P.S. I was looking for Daytone Blue-Black but no shop had it.

That blue pen at the bottom of the picture looks a lot like my Camlin Cute. Small pen, right?

Seems like you got some really nice ones. And ink, too! Enjoy.

Hyderabad - I know that JK Pen Store has them. And so does Deccan Pen Stores, both are however in Abids which I would rather not go to as it's a bit far from where I live.

As for Amazon I'd rather not get huge bottles. 1 60ml bottle of blue black would suffice.

Hi....

I am from Hyderabad too. Nice haul. Where can one buy good quality nibs in Hyderabad. I asked for Ambitous nibs at JK and Deccan pen stores. They don't have them.
