  1. Hi I'm a newbie here thinking to start writing with a fountain pen again. I had tried earlier with a classmate Octane but the nib was too sratchy still continued with the two barrels and later switched back to ball pen. Had seen fountain pen all my childhood but never could write with one. Then through out wet shave fb group got in touch with few like minded people who still write with them. One of the makers Pinkwoolf also does send a lovely handwritten note with a fountain pen that ignited the aviation fuel build up which was awaiting ignition.
  2. Continuing my quest for fountain pens from Andhra Pradesh & Telangana… I had heard about Hema fountain pens or rather, I had seen the name of Hema Pen Company on the net while browsing for information on fountain pens in Hyderabad, but I understood that they no longer manufacture fountain pens and there is Hema Pen Stores, also in Hyderabad, and when I called them to find out about fountain pens, they told me that they don’t sell fountain pens anymore and only sell general stationery… But I instinctively felt that there are Hema fountain pens out there and it is only a matter of time b
  3. In 2004, I was on a long work related visit to Hyderabad. On the day of my departure back to Mumbai, the official car dropped me at Nampalli, some 2 hours in advance of the time of departure of the train that was to take me back. I put my bags in the cloak room and to kill time, walked into the Abids area which is very near to Nampalli. I entered the Abids main road from the Chermas end. so it was a 100-150 metre walk upto Orient estate, when I saw a shop sign saying "The Deccan Pen Stores". Now, I was not already a full blown pen nut in 2004 but yes, I was then very much pen crazy and was thr
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. I was looking for some pictures in my album and came across these pictures taken one evening in April 2008 when I was visiting Hyderabad. The RP road, Secunderabad branch of Deccan pen stores: http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/deccan%20visit%202008/IMG_0915.jpg http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/deccan%20visit%202008/IMG_0916.jpg http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/deccan%20visit%202008/IMG_0917.jpg The gold nibbed Indian beauties. Rare as hen's teeth now. http://i991.photobucket.com/albums/af39/hari3171/deccan%20visit%202008/IMG_0918.jpg
  7. 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
