Pictures of Ranga pens in Blue and White Swirl premium ebonite will be appreciated. I'm particularly interested in seeing differences in the polished finish vs bakul in this specific ebonite. Thank everyone and anyone for posting your pics! I've just ordered a 3C in Blue and White Swirl polished, and want to be sure I prefer it to the bakul for this ebonite. Mods, please move if this is in the wrong forum.
Let your ink flow.
Premium ebonite is best in polished finish. This is Mr. Kandan's recommendation.
I've never actually seen a premium ebonite in bakul, but I assume the type of material makes the standard ebonite more adequate to the bakul finish than the premium. Mr. Kandan may possibly explain the technical reasons.
As far as colour is concerned, you need to be ready for surprises, one pen is never the same as the other with ebonite, and differences are not just in the part of the rod which is used, and the width of the pen which will eat up some of the material from the rod surface (so the swirl also depends on how deep the turning digs into the rod), but also between different batches of the same ebonite.
In any case, here is an 8B in blue white swirl (the other pens are another 8B and a 3C, essentially the 8B and 3/3C are a similar size but the 8B, besides the pointed ends, has an hourglass shaped section).
The differences are what make each pen unique.
