3. We have worked very hard for last few weeks to make pens in all Specs for this Group Buy and take pictures for our customer's . Therefore it gives good visualization of all Specs.

I've been waiting months for this Group Buy to come along - Model 8B with JoWo nibs!  Ordered a premium ebonite (blue/pink/pale yellow swirl) threaded to take a JoWo nib...

 

Many thanks M.P. Kandan and Ranga Pens.

 

[Edited to add:] I've opted for clipless, as with most of my Rangas - they're too long to clip into my shirt pocket anyway, and I think the clip detracts from the look of the pen, rather than adding to it!

The last 4 photos, I'm fairly certain, are:

 

Blue/Pink/Pale Yellow Swirl (P14)

Solid Forest Green (S1) in Bakul (matte) finish

Teal Blue / Orange Ripple (S20) in polished finish

Forest Green / Honey Ripple (S3) in polished finish.

 

That last one I'm *less* certain about - but I can't see any pens in the line-up that look closer in colour.  My Model C in forest green / honey ripple is somewhat darker, and the colours follow a 'swirl' pattern similar to the blue-orange ripple pen immediately above it...

Hi Mr. Kandan,

 

I was very much looking forward to this group buy too! Form submitted. I requested a polished clipless model in S20 (teal/orange) threaded to take Bock 250 but without the nib unit.  

 

*Payment made

Especially excited at the new premium ebonite offerings - and that some of the standard options are available again.

I got one before the group buy and it is really a well made classic shaped pen. Reminds me of the Oldwin fountain pen.

Now I feel like I want another in a different color. Hmmm...choices galore....


:P what you think of me is none of my business ;)

@mehandiratta, thanks for the correction - that possibility occurred to me, but it didn't look quite like the P7 pen in the other pictures!

Very tempted to do the same - some of the colour options haven't been available for a long time!

I'm in for another clipless one, this one with an Indian flex nib. Excited about that. This time it will be in special ebonite, polished, color teal (S7) swirl.

@mhguda, I'm sure you'll love the material: I have a teal blue / orange ripple bamboo pen, in bakul finish - more orange swirls than blue in mine, but it's a great colour combination!
