    Deccan Advocate (revisited)

    I have talked about the Deccan Advocate before. I’ve also talked about how great of an experience I had buying my first Deccan Advocate. Here’s a much more critical review, having bought 2 more Advocates since my first. The brown one was bought in 2017, olive in 2018, and the teal in 2020. Design and Appearance: The Brown and Olive rippled ebonite Advocates are pretty much the same. Slight variations have crept in, but that’s understandable since they’re hand turned, likely without any calipers. The olive one also has a cap band, which was later scraped in the next editions.
  2. Hari’s post on the evolution of the Deccan Advocate in the last decade inspired me to put together this post … a sort of companion post … I bought my first Advocate in December 2007 and that was a fortuitous event for me as far as fountain pens are concerned … I have been living in Hyderabad since 1992 and I remember visiting Deccan Pens at Abids around 1995 or so in search of a fountain pen … I had no idea about handmade Indian FPs, let alone pens made of ebonite and celluloid … I vaguely remember seeing long black thick bodied pens under the glass cases there … I didn’t even bother to ask th
  3. It was in the November of 2017 that I visited the Deccan Pen Stores in Ameerpet in Hyderabad. It almost felt as if I had finally entered my place of pilgrimage. The gentle and kind face, accented by senile wrinkles, of Mr Haleem Siddiqui welcomed me. He was about to leave the shop for prayers but after seeing me enter and ask for their own pens, he decided to delay his prayers, much to my denial. He showed me a very limited selection of Deccan pens and I saw my pen almost instantly. We talked about the shop and about pens in general. He told me that there was a recently finished Deccan Advo

    Pen Review - Deccan Advocate

    DECCAN ADVOCATE The review is simultaneously at my blog here. Deccan Pens have been into existence since 1928 when they opened first outlet in Hyderabad at Abids and has been one of the oldest fountain pen manufacturing company in India. The firm was started by Sabih Akhter Siddiqui who used to sell fountain pens door to door with the help of DURO agency which used to produce fountain pens in 1920’s. Today Deccan Pens has 32 year old manufacturing unit and they only make fountain pens. The review is simultaneously at my blog here. They have now 3 stores at Secunderabad, Ameerpet, and
  6. Dear Friends... Here is a link to the post on my blog on the recent avatar of the iconic Deccan Advocate...this latest version came out in 2013...there are more pictures than prose here... http://www.jaisiri.blogspot.in/2014/02/the-deccan-advocate-recent-avatar.html Thanks... Shrujaya
  7. This is about the pen that I bought recently (on 21 August 2013) from Deccan Pen Stores, Hyderabad. When Umair showed me this pen I thought I’d seen this pen before and probably hadn’t bought it then, and told so to Umair. He said this was a recent model and I couldn’t have seen it before. I wondered for a while and then it struck... FLASHBACK ALERT!!! I was in some way part of Hari’s novel project where he had wanted Deccan to make him an ebonite pen modelled on the Pelikan M800 that could hold a Pelikan screw-in nib unit. It was codenamed the Yematso Project. By virtue of living in
  8. When Zubair showed me this pen four days back, I thought this was the manufacturer’s sample piece of an old model. I was struck by the sheer beauty of this pen and told him that if ever he decides to sell this pen, I would want it. It was then that he told me that this is a model that ‘bade saab’ has been trying to perfect and it has reached this stage now. Bade saab hasn’t perfected it yet and this is only a kind of ‘preview.’ Bade saab is probably working on making a pen in wood for the first time and there are many things that he has to look out for, Zubair said. And this is no ordinar
  9. Last week, i placed an order for custom Deccan Advocate, Pelkan and Sr. Bullet plus some Chelpark inks. Advocate normally comes as an eyedropper but i requested them to change to a aerometric/squeeze filler. The Pelkan, is a lookalike of Pelikan M1000. Both Pelkan and Sr. Bullet are eyedroppers. Advocate is a HUGE pen about 16cm long, Pelkan is about 14.5cm and Sr. Bullet is 13.5 cm when capped. My daily pens are the size of Sr. Bullet and was apprehensive about using Advocate. Surprise, surprise!! This pen is well-balanced and a joy to write with. Pelkan is a beauty and comfortable to use.
