Just wanted to check: eyedropper pens come with #35 Kanwrite nibs, and CC pens with #5 Schmidt nibs.  Aren't the #35 nibs similar in size to a #6 JoWo / Bock / Schmidt nib?

 

I'm tempted by this group buy (as always) - but a little *less* tempted by the prospect of a smaller nib.  [Then again, the lure of a cheaper price...]

Dear All,

   

   We thought of providing these pens at less price.  We can give these pens with Jowo Nibs @ 10USD extra.

   I will add the nib options shortly.

   Also, I want to reiterate that Schmidt #5 nibs are proportionally proper to the Size of these Model 4S and Model 4CS Pens

Thanks Mr Kandan MP, the nibs do look well proportioned for the pens. I already have some spare #5 JoWo nibs, so I'm grateful for the new option you're adding. Still have to work out whether this fits within my budget, though!

Mr. Kandan
Can you offer option of Jowo 6 and not Jowo 5. I have five of your pens with Jowo 6 and no others with Jowo 5. One of the appeals of yiur pens is as I purchase more I have a full array of nib choices that I can switch from one Ranga pen to another. I couldn't buy this one with the Jowo 5 because I would not be able to switch the nib with my other Ranga screw in nibs. Not sure if others feel the same way.

I have submitted the form for one eyedropper pen. Kindly test the nib for smoothness and wetness before dispatching.

 

I have used Indian eyedropper pens, like Artex and Chelpark, during my school days where the threads were tight enough to render silicon grease useless. In fact, I have learnt of such a solution recently in this forum. I am hoping, if possible, that the threads on my pen would be tight enough to prevent any leakage on their own.

Order submitted for two pens, a C/C with #6 Bock Broad, and One without a nib.

 

Question: the ED with the Kanwrite nibs, is the feed ebonite? Does it friction fit into the section, and if so, is there anything that sets the depth of the feed and Nib?  I had a bad experience with an ED that had that setup, so I'm wary.

Hello all, Dear Mr Kandan

 

I could not find the Solid Orange(P10) colour on the google form. Is it sold out or has it just been forgotten ?

 

I was also wondering what would this orange look like in matte finish, anyone made a photograph ?

 

Ahh, so many options and colours to choose from ...

Hi, Is there an option to thread it for JOWO #5? Most of my pens are #5 nibs... Or will a #6 JOWO accept my #5?

And what is no 21? Solid Olive?

@Mr Kandan MP, you're making this very hard to resist  :bawl: !  Will have to see how my bank balance is looking towards the end of the Group Buy period...
