    Apa khabar semua

    Hello everyone, Greetings from Malaysia. I had been browsing as a guest on this site for months but only decided to sign-up a few days back (because a voice in my head told me to do so). I was introduced to fountain pens in school by my teachers when I was 11 and always had a fondness for them since then. My first fountain pen was a Hero, which was awful. Soon after, I got my self a Pilot Birdie which was a delight to use. I used it until I was 26 when I lost it in the office. Only in the past year that I seriously started collecting fountain pens as well
  3. Dear fellow FP users Over the years We have successfully organized many group buys. The main motive is to facilitate all members to get Our pens at a lower price.

  4. This is a mini-review of a recent Ranga pen (don't expect a fully fledged pro review as I will mostly attempt to give you a few facts and some of my personal impressions on this pen. Thanks). The Ranga Abhimanyu is one of the latest pen model offered by Ranga pens India. As some of you may have noticed, I'm sort of addicted to Ranga fountain pens, for two main reasons, first of all because I like the craftsmanship behind them and the typical originality of a hand made pen, where each pen is practically unique, secondly because I really like ebonite as a material. The charact
  5. Has anybody heard of this ebonite fountain pen from Dindigul? https://www.indiamart.com/shop-sigma/ebonite-pens.html#handmade-ebonite-fountain-pen-m012 It popped up in a google search. I have never heard of nor used "indiamart.com". The carved decorations at the ends of the pens looked interesting... A kind of 'ancient' feel...

  8. Lotus pens is an Indian pen manufacturer based out of Mumbai. It is run by Mr Arun Singhi. I came across this firm through one of the reviews posted on FPN last year or so. Looking through their website, I found some designs that interested me. https://www.lotuspens.com The material they use is from Nikko Ebonite Japan. https://www.nikkoebonite.com/english_site/index.html I was most interested in their model called the Vamza. It is apparently the Sanskrit word for Bamboo. However their Vamza was clipless and a clipless pen is useless for me. YMMV. So I got into a conversation with Mr Si

    Lotus Vamza

    I received this beautiful Lotus Vamza yesterday. What's amazing is that I ordered from the honorable Mr. Arun on November 27 and it arrived on December 8 via DHL. Eleven days from the order to my home. That's a real commitment to customer service and worthy of praise. I love bamboo-shaped pens and this one is fantastic. Made of red and black Nikko ebonite it's a joy in the hand and the craftsmanship is impeccable. I ordered the JoWo 1.1 in gold-tone and I like that the Lotus brand is on the nib. A very nice touch. Seeing the quality of Mr. Arun's work I can assure you t

    With a lot of regret I offer this amazing pen for sale. I had Shawn Newton make me this beautiful pen with ebonite I selected, and an exquisite super-flex #2 Waterman nib I had out of an old broken BCHR Waterman 52 I had. The nib is spectacular, Fto BBB effortlessly, with beautiful return. It is not a 'wet noodle' per se, as it can write a plain fine line perfectly well, with a light hand. This is an EYEDROPPER pen. It does not post. The reason I am selling it is that it is just too wide for my very small hand. It is similar to a Pelikan M800 or Montblanc 146 in width. In addition, I find I do not care for the eyedropper fill style. Hence I have used it very little; there is essentially no wear on this pen. All I have is a phone camera so the photos are not very good, and I apologize for that.

  12. Most Indian pen manufacturers have ebonite and acrylic pens. Most of the time I see that acrylic is at higher price than ebonite pens. Is this because of the differences in difficulty in manufacture or difference in writing experience? Is there any difference in writing experience (weight, feel etc) of ebonite vs acrylic pens? Which do you prefer?

    Two New Danitrio Maki-E Pens

    Recently picked up these two super cool Danitrio maki-e fountain pens. Where I shop, Dromgooles in Houston, I have a very large selection of urushi fountain pens. I considered the new and very well made Sailor tamenuri midore-dame King of Pen but rejected it for a variety of reasons. IMG_4295 by Ja Ja, on Flickr Among those reasons was the there were other pens I was more interested in. These pens I purchased were certainly among them!

  17. Sharing the pictures of my new Deccan Author Red Ebonite eyedropper pen. There are 2 previous posts discussing about the acrylic versions of this pen: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/216836-deccan-aurelius-author/https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/224094-the-deccan-aurelius-aka-the-author/I bought the eyedropper, ebonite Author in red colour, with Deccan stock fine nib. Overall design: It is a simple and elegant design. The colour appears more brownish-red than bright red that is seen in images with light. The clip appears slightly off the center (but it do
  18. So its Sunday morning here and I planned to post it a week ago but got delayed in hopes of adding wality ( which in exchange is running late in transit) so will only focus on these 2 new guys. One is ASA Maya which I went for Jowo fine nib other is kanwrite Heritage. The service was good by both manufactures, never had a issue on contacts with watsapp, email from ASA was well lets just say it was not too good but being contact on watsapp and phone made email redundant so still very nice service. Time take for arrival was 1month 6 days for ASA and 4 days for Kanwrite which is quite on time. I

  20. It is a copy of my blog post at https://inkpensblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/20/deccan-bullet-junior-fountain-pen-in-green-ebonite/ I have heard a lot about Deccan pens in FPN and other pen corridors and have been thinking about getting one. I contacted​ the store through their facebook page and then through WhatsApp. At that time, I was looking for a green ebonite pen as well. So, I chose to get a Deccan Bullet Junior pen in Green Ebonite which was readily available. The delivery was very prompt and I got this beauty in my hands within a weeks time after ordering. It is a small pen and b

  23. Family owned and operated, Fountain Pen Revolution has come out with their version 2 of the Jaipur fountain pen. Currently there are only 2 acrylics, a blue and an orange and 1 ebonite brown which is the subject of this first look reviewlet. What is it? A piston filler of Indian origin designed and branded by FPR along with a stable of other brands that they sell. The ebonite is smoother and finished better than the Himalaya v2. Himalaya looks and feels more matte whilst the Jaipur is slicker and sheenier. The length is a smidge longer and girthier than the Himalaya with a more cylindrical
  24. Hello everyone. In follow-up to the topic of protecting ebonite and celluloid (cellulose nitrate) started in this thread: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/332509-experiments-to-re-blacken-hard-rubber/page-2?do=findComment&comment=4301019 I've been going down the rabbit hole of researching HALS and other chemicals that offer protection against UV light-induced oxidation. Something that would act as a moisture barrier would be nice as well. HALS and related chemicals can ostensibly be purchased, but the myriad variations and solubilities have me baffled. I found a resour
