Bravo, these are all beautiful! I've ordered one pen from you guys before a long time ago in a group by but I think I'm definitely going to have to order one of these. The colors really pop and have good depth to them

These look beautiful!  Will these work as eyedropper fillers?  Roughly, how many turns will they take to uncap?

I prefer my Rangas without clip and as eyedropper-filled only, with Ambitious or Kanwrite nib. What can be done in that respect? The acrylics are so beautiful, even though I own several copies of all three, if my preferred configuration is available, I'd be sorely tempted...

Would it be possible to order an 8B in one of these acrylics, from the group buy or directly from the Ranga website? I would not mind paying a little extra to get the shape I want (I really like the hourglass-shaped section on the 8B).

Hi. I'm interested in having a Model 5 in Aqua threaded for a Bock 8 nib, is that possible? There is no Bock 8 thread option in the form. How much total would it cost, and what is the estimate turn out time?

 

I am in the UK.

 

 

Best regards

Hmmm, interesting... The only #8 nib option I recall seeing was the US$230 gold (which did tempt me)

 

Does the #8 use a larger Bock housing, or is it just larger in the exposed area (I can understand it being limited to the Model 5 if the exposed part of the nib is too large for the smaller models). If it is just the exposed part that is larger, then asking for a "no nib/Bock threaded" might be feasible...

 

If you get a response (yes, I did see your follow-up) it might be worth posting here to let others know.

The information does not include mention of the diameter of the pen's section. Made a mistake like that with a Ranga 4CS.

This time I must know for sure. I had to check the Ranga Web Site. Always easy to be wise after the mistake.

I urge fellow FPN members to check before ordering, especially if you have small hands, or a pair of shovels attached to your wrists.

Dear Mr Kandan,

 

I already have 2x nibs with me, one in gold and one in titanium. I only want the pen so I can use them. Therefore I want a pen threaded, but without nib. I might also want an extra section to accept my no.6 nibs.

The form does not have an option for Bock 8 threaded section WITHOUT nib. Can you confirm whether you would sell one threaded without nib in the group buy.

 

Best,

 

Noah
