  1. Kanpur writers was primarily an OEM nib manufacturer based in Kanpur, the industrial capital of Uttar Pradesh in India. For the last decade they have their own pen brand called Kanwrite. As a nib specialist, their No 9 nib was long in coming. But it launched last month at the Kolkata pen mahotsav. This nib is 45mm long ( Namiki no 50 is 42-43mm long), 12.6mm wide at the shoulders. The feeder dia is 9mm. The nib and feed are placed in a housing. Thus this is a proper screw in mo 9 nib unit. But without any nozzle for standard international cartridges or converters. This nib is sold on a new matching gargantuan fountain pen called the Mammoth. The mammoth comes in two colors. This and a shiny black one. Both Indian ebonite. The nib 9mm ebonite feed. the pen can fill with this detachable ink vial which one can eyedropper. A proprietary piston filler that attaches to this pen and converts this pen to bottle filling is also provided. The mammoth along side another Indian giant called the Deccan masterpiece. the no 9 nib along side the previously largest Indian nib, the ambitious no 40 which is 40mm long and takes a 1/4inch diameter feed. Ebonite feeders both. an Indian no 8 nib placed on the exposed portion of the no 9. The nib unit disassembled. The housing has an O ring. This is a high flow housing. No nipple for international cartridge/converters. L-R: KW no 9, Ambitious no 40, KW no 35 and Anbitious no 8 ( Indian no 8: 28mm) The pen is fundamentally good. Zero dryouts. Reliable starts. It’s a very wet writer and currently only nibs upto B are available. cheers Hari
  2. Some people really like the big pens. Well, for them, I have a pair of dip pens you may want to see. These are fully-functional, though really novelty pens. The pens are called "The Midget" made by the American Pencil Co. in NY. The holders are 11.25" (28.5cm) long without the nib, 13 7/8" (33cm) long with the nib, 3/4" wide at the thickets part. You can see them with a standard holder and Esterbrook Jackson Stub for scale. The two nibs are interesting. One is the Esterbrook Mammoth, a nib so big it requires a special holder. Until I found these, it was the biggest dip pen nib I had seen or heard about. The other one, which is almost identical in size and proportions, was made in England but then imprinted and sold in the US by M. L. Leman of New York and is called a Jumbo Falcon. I've never seen an English pen this large before, and none from anywhere as large as the Mammoth Falcon. But these nibs totally fit the size and proportion of the pens. These super-large, novelty dip pens come in a few different styles. I've seen a couple of others, but none quite this large. So, have any ultra-large, novelty pens or pencils you'd like to share?
