Does anyone have a capped Slim Bamboo and a Sugarcane side by side picture?

I don't, but in response to this old thread, I can say that I have purchased directly from the site and a pen is on its way to me. 

 

Here is one from PSP if that helps 85AKbN: (Doesn't show sugarcane, but you can probably compare one of those to the sugarcane, as the bamboo slim is shown)

Are you sure that it's on its way? When was it sent? I.e., is the Indian Post still working? After all, the whole country has been shut down this week in a rather brutal way.

 

I purchased a pen several weeks ago, and Kandan wrote me on the 2nd of March , that he'll definitely send the pen in two weeks. That would have been on the 16th, however, I haven't heard from him since. I don't dare to ask about it, since they must have enough problems, even without mails from disgruntled customers ...

I got an email with tracking. The pen is on its way and in the mail... but it hasn't reached the USA yet. I assume it is stuck in India (the tracking number says it has been in India for a few weeks, and it doesn't look like it is moving)

 

But it is in the mail.

Tracking pens sent from India is notoriously difficult - the tracking seems to stop somewhere in India, and under normal circumstances it can take another 3-4 weeks to reach me here in Aus.  Remember too, these aren't normal circumstances - so it could well take a bit longer!

Thank you for informing me of this.

Yes.

I got my Slim Bamboo orange premium ebonite with JoWa medium nib from peytonstreetpens. Second pic is with the Lamy Al-Star Turmaline. A great writer.

Does anyone have any information on the situation at Ranga?

 

I still don't have the pen of which Kandan informed me about a delay in shipping on March 2nd. I've sent him a mail a week ago to inquire if the Indian post is working again, but didn't receive an answer.

 

They're based not very far away from Chennai which is under lockdown again, so I'm worried and hope everyone is healthy there.

I got mine maybe 2 weeks ago, shipped directly from Ranga - I ordered in (I think) in mid-February.

Thank you! I'll send another mail and if I don't get an answer again, I'll ask PayPal to cancel my payment.

No packages can leave India at least until the end of the month.  I'm still waiting on my acrylic.

When you speak of the devil ... I had just anwered to this post, when I received a mail from Kandan. He tells me the same--Chennai in lockdown, India Post not working until June 30th. So I'll have to wait.
