Wow, this looks fantastic - just what I was hoping you wouldn't offer, because it might weaken my resolve to hold off...  Maybe a nice present for Christmas???

I purchased three Model 3 pens last month and I would like to share some pictures of them here. Please forgive my terrible photography as the photos do not do these pens justice. The acrylic is top notch material and the craftsmanship is excellent.

For the benefit of doubters, I just got my Ranga 8B with Jowo stub nib in blue and black Ebonite from Payton Street Pens.  It's hard to believe this pen was handmade.  Fit and finish is perfect, it's astonishingly beautiful and writes like a dream.

Mr Kandan. You have led me into temptation again: Plain blue 8b With JoWo Fine nib in chrome.

I was looking at the blue cracked ice at first, but that kind looks better in black/white, or green/white where the contrast is greater.

Mr Kandan said the pen I ordered had already been made.

I was fully expecting that I would have to join the queue of orders & wait patiently.

I still have to wait for the shipping delay.

This men I ordered (8B) has a concave section. I checked that the dimensions do suit me before ordering & they are perfect. This is the first pen I have had with a JoWo branded nib. Before every Ranga had either Kanwrite or Bock nibs.

Congratulations - I think you'll be impressed.  I think the Ranga / JoWo combo is the best of all worlds.

When I made post #13 the pen had been posted that day. At present it's waiting at the airport.

These pens are 3-in-1, according to Ranga. But whose cartridges fit?

Does anyone on this forum feed a Ranga with cartridge ink? I have some Private Reserve Eelectric Blue Long International and Herbin Eclat de Saphir shorts. Blue ink in a blue pen, so I won't have to guess what the hell is in it!

Well, when it is one of five other pens you have inked it can be a guessing game at times.

Jowo nib units will take Standard International cartridges. Actually Bock and Schmidt nib units will too.

In my experience, the Bock/Jowo threaded models use converters compatible with "international standard" nipples; I've not tried with cartridges, but would think a common (short) would be no problem, and suspect any that is no longer than the converter might fit.

yes international cartridges, Ranga uses Schmidt international converters.

I use converters, I often forget what ink is in the pen, but I use blue ink only, many different though, that is why when I fill pens I always write in a small notebook what ink is in what pen and when it was filled.

That is my experience too.  If you order a pen with nib unit installed, Ranga Pens usually include a Schmidt converter in the order (which is a pretty good quality option) - but any Standard International converter should work.  [NB I discovered a few years ago, by painful trial and error, that many of the cheap converters sold with Jinhao and other Chinese pens are NOT standard international...]

Wow the timing, I'd just been looking at Ranga Pens last week as I found someone got a model 5 with a bock #8 nib. The #8 gold nib is listed above but when I work though the form the #8 nib isn't listed, will it not fit any of these models?

 

Thanks
