We are ever grateful to FPN members for all their support and encouragement for our products. We recognise this and we are happy to announce an International Group Buy here for ASA Mist. ASA Mist offers an amalgamation of two of the most sought after materials, in the pen making. We have kept the section and cap button in Ebonite.

Ebonite section is most friendly for long writing hours.

This is in continuation of my effort to record some old forgotten/missing brands of pens from India. Today, we will see another vintage Indian Brand RITESHARP. I do not have much information about this brand either, but have heard a lot about this brand. Its a rare find, again from the bag! My earlier posts are in this link.. Ricoh Sabena-75 Swan VIP This is a medium size pen and came in many colour barrels. The barrels were plastic and had a metal cap. The Cap had chasing design done on it and the clip is gold plated. The date stamp in barrel points out that this pen is of June 1961. Please find the pictures :- The Pen The Imprint in the barrel. Note the date stamp 661 & the Emblem- R over a Lotus (Lotus is the national flower of India) The chasing on the cap. The Ritesharp imprint in cap. The Emblem in the Clip The Nib imprint Kingson (Kingson is another famous Indian vintage brand) The Clip design- Does it look like black-bird Hope you enjoyed one more Vintage Indian Brand. Any more information about this brand is welcome.
Not much is known about this company. We know that Wilson Pen Company was one of the significant pen manufacturers in India. They existed since 1939 as Wilson. They were headquartered in Bombay, India. (I learnt somewhere that they named their company Wilson, because the nibs they imported from USA during wartime had Wilson mentioned). During my school days, I remember Wilson was an envious brand. They used to come in many many models, introduced frequently and often high class replicates of famous Parker models. The most famous were the Wilson jotter pens & also a ball-point pen called "4-point pen" (used to write in 4 colours) Wilson actually paved the way to many western name brands in India like Kingson, Diplomat, Artex etc. They used to come in a plastic boxes mostly as pen sets. The boxes resembled & also open like the present day, manual mercury based "blood pressure monitoring" instrument. I had many Wilson pens but by now have lost all of them, but the pens were always in my mind. Recently, a friend of mine told me that he had a Wilson Fountain Pen, which he never used, since he fancied ball-points only. Thus came to my hands this beautiful Wilson 21, a deep red colour pen, with gold-plated clip and a cap band. (resembles vintage Parker) The pen posted The etching in the barrel "Wilson Regd" & 21 The Cap with clip & Band, "Wilson" is inscribed in both places. The Nib..Here to "Wilson" is written in nib, feed & Section Hope you liked reading about Wilson 21...
