  1. Hello pen folks, I am from Calcutta, India. I have been using fountain pens for 17 years only. Most of them have been cheap Indian pens and only in the last two - three years have I forayed into the world of Western pens, which in return have pretty much broken the bank for me, So nowadays, I am practicing the art of holding back and have been waiting for the delivery of two custom pens from two different pen-makers. I have been a frequent visitor of this forum and finally ended up making an account last week. Hopefully, it would be a pleasurable experience here. A sneak peek into part of my small (?) collection.

    Bought New Parker 51 Vacumatic

    Hi All Today I am going to share my experience with my new(new to me ) Parker 51 Vacumatic . I have bought it from Pen Hospital Kolkata. This was my first visit to pen hospital. The seller is nice and well behaved person. First I have dealt with Sheaffer snorkel, but I have changed my mine after testing the Vac. It cost me Rs 5000(Around $78). This is single jewel pen with a blue diamond in the cap. And the cap is 14 Kt gold plated. And the ring near section is golden(generally we found silver color). The section of the pen is black and engraved with "PARKER 51 MADE IN USA". Nib is fine-medium . It is made of gold and dated 1947. Nib is very smooth in fact this is the smoothest nib I have ever used(I own Waterman Carene, Pelikan M200, Pilot Metal Elabo). May be I should thanks previous owner of this pen . Seller said everything is original(including vac pump ) . It gives me a mixed feeling. Although the pump is working fine as of now, it may need to be serviced after some time. But seller promise me to provide free repair(within 5 Years of purchase).. Thanks
  3. Hi , guys this is Dr.soumya Mukherjee , I had been reading this forum for quite a few days now .. I have always liked fountain pens but never really took seriously . But in the last six months I have grown fond of fountain pens .. As a new user I would like to know with which pens I start my writing .. My budget is initially 500 as I am starting to check the waters .. I have camlin inks and I ordered 5 colored inks from KRISHNA INKS which sells via eBay .. I mainly use branded flair ,montex and camlin mini pens as for now .. But I would like to get some suggestions about my first good pen and ink for some better experience.. I am from Kolkata and work in Medical college so very near to college street .. Some good shops for suggestion would be welcomed as well .. Thank you all in advance for the help ..
  4. I live in Kolkata, India. I have a Parker Frontier Matte Black fountain pen which has been a longtime favourite! Recently its nib got destroyed as it fell from my table . I do not want to buy a new one as this particular one has many fond memories attached to it. Will appreciate if anybody tells me how or where do I get a spare nib for this particular pen, preferrably in golden/dual colour?

    Parker 51 In Kolkata (Calcutta)

    I am looking for some Parker 51's from a long time but unfortunately two of them purchased by me from eBay got lost in customs. I am now hunting them in India. I will be visiting Kolkata in the coming week. Does anybody knows if I can find (Where??) Parker 51 and other pens (probably in NOS) there.
