I admit I do not use this pen the way it deserves to be and so I am moving it on to an appreciative FPN user IN THE UK ONLY. Sorry to raise my voice. Transatlantic postage is stupid expensive.

 

The pen is from a Group Buy. It is entirely of polished black ebonite. It should have a Schmidt K5 converter, but the red rubber seal washer inside the converter failed. It has a Jinhao converter in there now.

The pen has a 3 in 1 ink feed but i'd suggest you had a specific nib unit for that role as a Bock 250 nib unit writes very wet with 2.5ml of ink in the barrel. The pen has a Fine & Extra-Fine Bock 250 nib unit included.

 

I am passing the pen on because my preference is towards Eyedropper pens with basic ebonite feeds for easy cleaning.

Hi,
I'd love to receive it!
Don't have an Ebonite pen and this would be a great one to have.
Please let me know :)

Thank you for this PIF,

I am not a contender, just saying thanks.

Ranga pens are lovely writers, the new owner will be pleased.

Although the pen is a CC filler you can try it in ED by just leaving out the converter and filling the barrel with ink,

Ranga pens usually come already with a dab of silicone grease on the barrel threads, just fill with ink and go.

This pen has been posted to Forum member Sidd.

I passed on the Ranga 3 because while the section was fine for my grip it was too wet when used as a Eyedropper.

I have a Olive Green Ranga 4S Eyedropper now. It takes #6 nibs. As of this moment there's a Kanwrite Flex nib in it & Hero 202 ink.

I think this thread can be closed now.

 

Sidd:

If you do decide to part with the pen it would be an excellent idea to give a beginner a chance to own it.
