Thanks.. I have never seen most of the models in any retail shops.. Except trinity and Elegante.. Which is why I was under the impression that they are not in production.

 

I dont want to say this but many shopkeepers don't want to keep FPs and those who do have issue of awareness. I honestly never see any indian brand around any local shops apart from 2 mentioned above and luxor brands and chinese pens (which they say are indian when they sell... :wacko: ).....general awareness is downright low to say kindly......at least in my city most retailers have no idea wality and kanwrite are company.....Kanwrite is produced 80km from where we stay.....irony.

Got my Wality 71J few days back. Very nice pen with large ink capacity. Smoothly writes fine wet lines. Worth every penny.

The nib quality does not vary IME between the stock no 8 and no 5.5 nibs. Some nibs are really excellent. Some are very scratchy. Most are passable. You have only F as default option. If you like F, try their stock nibs first. You might be perfectly happy with the performance.

 

Thank you, Hari.

 

I bought a few Wality pens recently - 71JT from a local pen shop, 69TL (from asapens) and 77RD (from penhouse).

I am quite happy with the nibs in all these 3 pens. They were not just 'ok', they were actually quite good - the nibs wrote smooth with a tiny bit of rustling feedback. The 77RD was especially good, although it was the most inexpensive of the lot.

 

I saw many old posts mentioning that Wality pens have scratchy nibs - I am wondering whether new Wality pens have improved on their nibs? Or, maybe I just got lucky 3 times in a row.

 

What are the experiences of others who have bought Wality pens recently?

Wality are sometimes surprise boxes, for me one nib was amazing other was ok-ish at start, now with over 100 page in the that nib has gotten quite better. I think several things account here and most problem at start (from my general experience with ebonite feed) is that feed takes a bit time to settle (or get wet... something along the lines), basically give feed few days and pages, pen will definitely be better then before.

Wality nibs for me have been good too, just one of my relatives wality was quite scratchy, nothing a few tinkering can't solve. All in all surprise box issues are still possible (thus all posts by people) but still majority are good or ok-ish. Can't say if new QC has changes as I only have got one pen recently (the ok-ish one😅) still quite happy with it.

I've had good and bad out of these nibs.  Some took a little taming and some were impossible.  The impossible ones I replaced because the nib tipping was off center and ragged looking.  I have had paper knives that didn't cut paper that well.  But I am a huge fan of the pens and enjoy every one of them, even the ones that don't want to cooperate.  I am currently waiting for international shipping to be resumed so that Penhouse can start getting some of my business.
