  1. Hi, Are there active members here from Bangalore? I live in whitefield, and would not mind connecting with others in the vicinity and bangalore city. I think we might gain from each others' knowledge and also look at ordering stuff collectively from abroad to save costs. Sanjay
  2. Before I embarked on my trip to Avenue Road, I had two places in mind - the highly suggested Meenakshi Pen Mart, and R. V Nadam and Co, which I had read an article about. I tried to start my trip by finding Meenakshi Pen Mart but it proved too difficult to find. Google Maps showed an incorrect location, and when I asked other shopkeepers, they were unable to direct me either. After about thirty minutes of searching, I decided to abandon, and hunt for R.V Nadam and Co. This shop was ten minutes away, and it was quite easy to find. The nearby landmark is Vijayalakshmi Theatre. It’s also easy
  3. Hi all, I stay in Bangalore, and I might end up going to avenue road over the weekend. I'm specifically looking for colourful fountain pen ink, and maybe cheap second hand pens. I know Meenakshi Pen Mart is a favorite but can anyone confirm they sell different coloured ink as well? Smruthi

    Hi From India

    Hi Everyone, I'm Arun from Bangalore, India. As to why I am here, its kind of a funny story. I was introduced to fountain pens back when I was in school almost more than a decade ago. At that time, although I loved the experience of using a fountain pen, I was kind of frustrated with the ink spilling here and there (mainly due to running around), and the low quality paper which caused bleeding. I reduced using fountain pens just so I could avoid all this hassle. Last week, all of a sudden I woke up one morning, felt like writing something using a fountain pen and when I realized I didn'
  5. Hi FPN'ers, I went through a few posts written by hari a few years ago about FP shops in Bangalore. I have had very little luck finding places from where I can buy FP's - esp vintage ones (plato, wilson,parker etc) I did visit Meenakshi Pen Store on Avenue Road a couple of times and grabbed a whole bunch of FP's, but he does not seem to add any new pens to his collection apart from the same old Click ebonites, Wality demos and a whole bunch of Jinhao and Baoer pens. I keep asking him to reach out to Hyderabad, Chennai and Kerala and stock Deccan's, Guiders, Gamas, Rangas and Kims, but no

    Greetings From Bangalore

    Hello fellow FPN'ers, I have been browsing FPN for around a year and this is my first post. I have been an avid FP user for the last 15 years. I used FP's exclusively through school and university and only recently since last year, started a collection. Here is an initial set from my humble collection: http://i.imgur.com/uRMXxKc.jpg http://i.imgur.com/CssrPnS.jpg From top to bottom: Parker 45 flighter - Good deal on eBay. Wonderful writer Pilot Vortex - Good nib, but very disappointed with the pen quality overall Sheaffer No Nonsense - Smooth wet medium nib. hate the color My firs
  7. Most stationary stores or pen stores in Bangalore do not seem to stock "Indian" FPs (they seem to sell a fair amount of Jinhao, Baoer, Pilot, Hero, etc.), I decided to check a few stores in Avenue Road today. It was quite unfortunate, as the stores that I was pointed to were shut today (I hope they were only having a really long lunch break and hadn't closed the stores!). When I did press a few storekeepers (only those which were manned by the gray haired men), they pulled out a few dusty boxes of the Click Ebonites and the Click demonstrators. My aim was to pick up a few ebonites or acrylic
  8. Hello everyone, I've just got serious about fountain pens and after buying a couple (a Gama and a Jinhao) and reading a little bit, I've discovered I like the following in an ink pen: - a fine nib which has a little bit of cushion, since my handwriting is small - slightly wet flow, say 2-3 seconds - a narrow gripping section, since I have small, girly hands (although the barrel could taper out and become larger) - well-balanced without posting - preferably ED or piston-filled Now I guess it all comes down to my budget. And that's the real challenge. I'm a student, and I cannot go beyo
