Sugarcane (forget if I marked regular or mini -- think mini as the dimensions are similar to regular bamboo), some greenish shade as I recall, 18K gold Bock F nib.

 

 

{It would be a major effort on the web order form, but has any thought been given to using separate color/sample images attached to the radio buttons -- scrolling up&down to match the numbered items in the photos to the long list of buttons can be confusing}

Dear Mr.Baronwulfraed Sir,

 

   Thin Sugarcane is mostly similar to thin Bamboo. Regular Sugarcane is slightly longer than Regular Bamboo.

   We have given lot of choices for Models, Colours and Nibs. But we tried our best to give it in one place

   It has 15 Models *39 colours *56 Nibs *3 clip Options =98280 Choices. All for FPN'ers delight:)

Can you provide a low number of cap rotations for capping/uncapping?  Also, what is the narrowest diameter of the grip of the 4C?

Thank you.

Could you tell me whether the photo above of the 8B is with mottled Olive ebonite?
Also, is it true that a mini Sugarcane model is indeed the same size as a Regular Bamboo?
Thanks again Mr Kandan for a new group buy.
I am hesitating, however, as I was waiting for acrylics without step ups, but some Matte ebonites are very tempting.

Dear Mr. Lloyd Sir,

 

   Atleast 2 turns are needed for long life. We have implemented (less than 1 turn) in Sugarcane series models alone with extra work.

 

 In 4C , the narrowest section girth is 10.5-11mm app

Dear Mr. Dupontdelamare Sir,

 

   You are welcome to participate:)

   Model 8 is Mottled Olive , Model 8B is Solid Golden Brown.   

   Thin Sugarcane can be equated to Thin Bamboo in terms of dimension

   Only nodes of thin bamboo are slightly thicker

   We are introducing Thin Sugarcane for first time here

RANGA Bamboo (Regular Size): (Clipless Model)
(Thickness- 16mm dia (barrel and Cap), Capped Length - App 5.75 inches )

 

RANGA Thin Sugarcane: (Clipless Model)

(Thickness- 16mm dia at the Node (barrel and Cap), Capped Length - App 5.75 inches )

 

 


   Thin Sugarcane is mostly similar to thin Bamboo. Regular Sugarcane is slightly longer than Regular Bamboo.

 

I was basing it on the listed dimensions -- granted, sugarcane has "joints" that protrude, where bamboo has "joints" that cut in. But my bamboo just fits my larger 4-slot pen case. The 17+ mm of "regular sugarcane" is unlikely to fit. That's why I consider the thin sugarcane similar to regular bamboo.

 

Don't know if you've had time to check your email -- the confirmation with payment instructions I received has an incorrect price... The gold bock nib was not accounted for.

 

 

Payment sent after receiving corrected price.

looks like there is another version of this thread...

http://www.fountainp...ebonite-models/

 

I'll just copy my first answer here, it was odd not finding it

 

Posted 02 October 2019 - 23:25

Having skipped the previous group buy, I'll be your first customer here, Mr. Kandan... :)

 

When it comes to bakul I find the standard rippled and mottled ebonite colours to show their value

 

I'm going with a clipless model 8 in mottled brown (R5), Bock gold tone nib M (as I don't have a bakul model 8 yet!)

Thank you

Aside from the color selection, what is the difference between the regular, special, and premium ebonites?
