  1. I am a Mumbai resident. However, I have to sometimes travel to Bangalore on work. Last week I was being driven to a place on Mysore road. Just as we were exiting Bangalore, I spotted an old run down stationery box stall (kiosk) on the road side. I immediately requested my driver to stop and went back and had a look. I asked if they had fountain pens, he said only old ones, no one is interested in FPs anymore. I asked him to show them to me anyway. The one or two shelve in the shop were packed with old pens kept in polyethene packets, mostly junk. I spotted a packet that looked interesting an
  2. I don't normally write up pen reviews, but since this is one that's a little more unusual than my other pens, thought I would take the time to do so. I had the urge in January 2014 to try another Indian-made pen. I have two Wality 59s which are pleasant to use, but are made of rather regular black and burgundy plastic. The colored ebonite pens are so beautiful and there are so many interesting small manufacturers in India. I liked the Wality nibs, they are nothing fancy but write well on a variety of papers and are a nice even F size, which is pretty much my speed. After poking around a bi
  3. This may rile up some folks. I've noted that when the subject of low cost pens comes up, more and more members will now advocate the Chinese pens. I've also seen where some posts voice an uneasiness regarding whether or not the pens from China are out and out counterfeits. On the one hand, I do know and recognize that some of the Chinese manufacturers are not in the legal sense counterfeiters. Many we are told have or had licensing agreements with say Parker. Plus, given that they market under their own brand name, I'd concede that they may not be legally counterfeits. Counterfeiters t
  4. Very less is known about the history of Brahmam pens of Andhra Pradesh, India. Below is the little information i could gather from discussion with Mr. Ramanamurthy of Ratnamson pens and some info from Deccan stores. ========================================================== Brahmam pens was started by Mr. Brahmam, the nephew of Mr. K.V Ratnam of the famous Ratnamson pens. The pen manufacturing was initially started in Rajahmundry and then moved to Bhimavaram near Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh. Few years into pen manufacturing, Mr. Brahmam passed away and the pen production continued under
  5. I first saw a pen like this on this forum, when manojd showcased a wooden pen he'd made. I wanted a wooden pen for a long time, so when he offered to make me one, I was hooked. Especially when he also explained he made pens from rolling pins! This is the first commissioned pen in my collection. I'm not sure if I can really call it commissioned, since the artist himself designed the pen - I was offered some options, but it really is manojd's creation. The most influential decision I could make was clipless yes or no. I chose clipless. Here is a picture, from his website: This is a beautiful pe
  6. In the spirit of my earlier thread on this topic: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/70378-leader-pen/ I found a box of Leader and Brahmam celluloids that I had stored away. I had bought the entire stock from a shop that had these pens in one of my many pen hunts... I had totally forgotten about them but I think they deserve to be shown for the variety and beauty in the patterns... I hope you enjoy the pics! http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii197/hari317/Leader%20Celluloid/IMG_9301.jpg http://i264.photobucket.com/albums/ii197/hari317/Leader%20Celluloid/IMG_9302.
