While going through one of my pen storage folders, I came across this pen. I was overcome by a wave of memories and was carried back nearly a decade... My first meeting with the Late Mr. Raju Mirchandani (we used to call him Rajubhai), how he had warmly welcomed me, an ordinary pen enthusiast, to his factory and offices just because I had expressed a desire to see how the pens are made. He was a true gentleman, respected by all he came in contact with and a treasure trove of knowledge about pens and the industry, he was the driving and thinking force behind Airmail/Wality in those days. The Wality 52OD was one of their premier piston filled export pens in those days and I got the chance to buy one. Here is the pen. The 52OD(Overlay design) is a piston pen that was injection molded, with a satin gold plated finish over the trims and a gold plated cast overlay over the cap tube. It looks lovely and very Indian. http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8933.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8934.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8938.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8939.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8940.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8941.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8942.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8943.jpg The special 2 tone medium nib: http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8944.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8945.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8946.jpg http://i1313.photobucket.com/albums/t543/hari_317/Wality52OD/IMG_8947.jpg Cheers!
