    Ranga Giant 9B

    Ranga, Model Giant 9B ebonite in Crimson Red with black specs I started out with relatively small and slim pens (e.g. Waterman Expert III). I soon found out that larger and girthier pens suit my hands better. Which is strange as I tend to have very small handwriting and prefer western extra fine and/or Japanese fine nibs. But somehow a bigger pen makes me write neater and helps me to hold the pen without tensioning my muscles that much. So, the facts: Manufacturer: Ranga & Co Model: Giant 9B Material: Ebonite Nib: Jowo #6 steel (EF) - unit Filling system: 3 in 1 (eye dropped) Capped: 175 mm Uncapped: 152 mm Posted: 207 mm Section: 12 – 13 mm ______________________________________________________________________ Appearance & Design – Oversized classic torpedo Well yeah, there is doubt about it, this is a giant pen (as the name suggests). It’s a clipless design and the seam between the cap and barrel is hardly noticeable. This gives it a classical yet sleek appearance. It is by no means an understated design, put this on your desk and people will notice. Construction & Quality - Craftmanship The pen feels lovely in the hand and is well balanced and is lightweight. The threading on the pen is unintrusive and well made. The pen uncaps in just under 1 turn! The treading on the barrel is quite long and this enhances the felling of security when eye dropping this pen. The ergonomics of the pen really fits my hand quite nicely. Weight & Dimensions - Long, girthy, yet lightweight This pen is surprisingly light! With such a big pen I expected it to be heavy but no, this weights no more than, say, a Pilot Custom 823 (by feel, as I don’t own a scale). For size comparison I show the pen with some well-known pens, hopefully this gives you an idea. Nib & Performance – It’s a Jowo #6 The extra fine steel #6 Jowo nib perform great out of the box (cleaned), no misalignment, no flow issues and smooth. The ink flow is generous enough to show the characters of the ink. I matched it with Akkerman Ink #17 (Staten-Generaal Rood), this suits the pen nicely IMHO. So, nothing to complain here. Filling System & Maintenance – Your choice With the 3 in 1 filling system, you can do whatever you want. There is a Smith standard international converter included with the pen. I chose to eye dropper it as I dislike refilling pens constantly (I write a lot) and like a big ink capacity. Cleaning is straight forward and easy as you can take the pen apart. Cost & Value – Great value For just a little over € 74,- this is a great value for your money pen. Especially if you consider it’s handmade, made of ebonite, huge number nib options and send within 2 weeks (order, produced and shipped!!). The packaging is great and customer service is impeccable Conclusion – Again thumbs up for Ranga 👍 All in all, again a lovely pen made by Ranga Pens. I have this pen inked-up and at the ready at my desk and use it mainly for longer writing session, the size and girth of the pen gives me a relaxed writing experience. It’s a pleasure to write with this pen.

    Flex Nibs And Pen Bodies

    I'm wanting to buy a flex pen, mostly for fun and to try my hand at writing with it. After a lot of searching I'm leaning towards a Ranga 3C ebonite pen with an Kanwrite Ultra Flex nib. I'm in the process of inquiring from Ranga if their pen will fit a Kanwrite nib unit (screw-in nib and feed). Does is fit Bock, or would this be a custom modification? I've read about the virtues of ebonite, so what's why the Ranga intrigues me, plus they offer a nib unit vs. just the nib (I often hear nibs from India, especially the thick Kanwrite nibs, are hard to fit on most feeds). I've also ordered a Franklin-Chrisoph music nib (nib unit) that I was going to install on a Jinhao x750 pen and then hopefully on a PenBSS 323 pen when it arrives. However, I might consider ordering a second Ranga pen with a Jowo #6 nib unit fitting. This would surely fit the F-C music nib, correct? Has anyone done this? Good ink flow? So, basically, I'm I headed in the right direction? 1) What's the best pen for a F-C music nib that's not a F-C pen? I've heard good success with PenBBS pens, but perhaps Ranga is better since the whole F-C nib unit can be installed vs. trying to fit the nib onto a PeBBS feed. 2) What's a good modern-day flex nib pen that's not too pricey? I've heard good things about the Kanwrite ultra flex steel nib. Which size - F or M or W? And then what body fits this nib, and writes well? FPN Himalaya V2 comes to mind, but then I saw Ranga. And if Ranga, which model? Thank you. Michael
  12. I'd like to buy a Ranga pen form an official source, that is directly form the manufacturer if that's possible. Apart from the occasional group buys that appear on FPN and managed by Ranga people, I noticed that there's the website: rangapens.com. Given that I don't want to be limited by the options offered in the group buys, I would like to order a pen based on my personal preferences and specifications and I was thinking of doing that through the aforementioned website. Now, my questions are: 1. Is that Ranga's official website? 2. Has anyone bought pens from that website and, if so, how was your experience? 3. Are the shipping costs included in the price? Because there's a widget there on the website to estimate those costs, but it seems it doesn't do anything... Thanks.

  16. 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 characteristics of ebonite are well known, it's a light, but resistant material, which also feels rather warm in the hand, somewhat similar to wood, and which has been used traditionally for fountain pens since a long time. India is one of those places where this material is still rather popular in the production of fountain pens among the small local manufacturers. If you do appreciated the characteristics of ebonite in a fountain pen, you will also probably know that through Ranga you have access to a very wide choice of ebonite qualities and colours (whenever I have bought a Ranga the most difficult part has practically always been choosing the colour! despite Ranga offers several other choices such as type of nibs, clip or no clip, eyedropper or converter, polished or bakul finish). It must however be said, that recently Ranga has expanded offer to several types of acrylic plastic, some of them, particularly the premium quality are really nice too. With this new pen, breaking a sort of current rule in Ranga's nomenclature for its pen models, the pen's name is not a number. Abhimanyu, from whom this pen takes its name, is the tragic hero of the ancient Indian epic poem Mahabharata, who dies at war when only 16. This inspiring name therefore symbolizes fearless heroic braveness. The Ranga Abhimanyu does seem to incarnate braveness but also ancient tradition. Just look at it. Don't you agree that these unusual (brave) but sensual curves are intimately and traditionally Indian? With the ebonite versions, the colours and patterns further add to such strong impression. In a way, I was in fact somewhat afraid that such a brave shape might not be comfortable (I know, I'm a bore on this, the step down, etc.). I was proven wrong, for which I'm glad! The length of the section and the carefully smoothed out step makes this short pen very comfortable to hold! It's length uncapped is comparable to a Pelikan M600, but the barrel is wider, the section slightly wider. It also vaguely reminds me of a Montegrappa Miya, although the section is much longer, and the bulge is moved further back. It can be posted, but I don't feel the need at all. Despite sort of being a portable pen, by Ranga's standards, on it's own it's not a small pen at all. The cap unscrew in 3/4 turn! and this is a welcome novelty for Ranga. The ebonite version shown here is an elegant premium ebonite in grey-cream, with a Bock nib and Schmidt converter. I find it very convenient to swap the nib with any other Bock nib, and I tend to prefer Bock nibs over Jowo (the other German nib option available at Ranga, besides also Indian sourced nibs) due to the slightly more bouncy behaviour of these nibs. Admittedly I was also attracted by one of the acrylic version, particularly this nice cracked mix of red, gold and dark blue, which shows some really nice reflections. Vs ebonite it's a more modern material but fascinating. Here also a close up of this nice resin. This version is Jowo threaded for a change. When buying from Ranga, since they offer this choice, I always ask them to test the nib for me, and it's not unlikely that this may have saved me from some disappointments with Bock nibs (which I have viceversa encountered when buying the stock nibs alone elsewhere...). All in all, I find this new Ranga model, which was recently also offered here in a group buy (in a really wide range of materials, and some particularly beautiful premium ebonite colours - my pink grey cream version comes from there), interestingly different from their 3, 4, 5 models range, a very well done, precise execution (even more notable in the acrylic version), a perfectly working tool out of the box, which gives pleasure in use and an extremely fascinating and good looking result. I've already reached three and I am tempted to get a 4th in ED (which was not offered so far).
  17. This past Tuesday I received from the maker in India a new Ranga fountain pen, my first Ranga. While I wrote to the maker to ask how the apparently #6 nib and feed come out of the section, I've not heard from him (maybe because he and his son don't often look at their email service or maybe too busy due to the work load: I used mpkandan@yahoo.co.in which is inside the pen case). Therefore, I'm here to ask the same thing: do I simply pull out the nib and feed since they're both friction fit, or are both inside a housing/collar that unscrews from the section? [I know if both are in a collar, I can pull them out of the collar/housing.]

    Ranga Model #3

    I first became aware of the Ranga fountain pens from the Pen Habit YouTube channel. I have just started to know more about them through youtube after a friend triggered my interest in them a few months back. I decided to buy from Ranga Sir as apparently they made pens that are well appreciated in the fountain pen community. Luckily for me I found a group buy for their model 3 and 4. I decided to go for the same model that Mat had reviewed but with an extra-fine nib. It cost me Rs. 2300. The pen arrived in about one month as estimated by Ranga Sir. I open the package in our lab where a few friends were present. Some people liked its look, some did not which obviously depends upon ones notion about how an expensive pen should look like (Some people may not find it expensive but we and my friends use a Rs. 10 pen for daily work.). The ebonite had a typical smell. I knew this smell from my childhood but I do not remember what was it of. It wasn't of a pen I am sure. The smell was gone after a few days. Appearance and feel The pen is more or less cylindrical with slight taper at the end of the barrel. The cap is not tapered. It has curved clip which works well but I do not much like its design. The ends are flat. The body overall is nicely polished. There are some machining marks but those don't matter much. The screw-in cap fits very securely. The section is pleasantly long and the threads are smooth. The barrel also fit nicely on the section with lot of turns. The pen had come with Schmidt K5 converter. I learned that they are standard international size convertors which can be easily bought if one gets damaged. I had used eye-droppers and the plastic sac filler in Hero pens most of my school life. I did not like it when the ink leaked through the eyedroppers. Converters offer a far better filling mechanism. Hold on the section feels much grippy and comfortable unlike plastic section of other pens. The pen is very light, at least much lighter than the Sheaffer 300 which I have. The pen becomes too long after posting so I do not post it while writing. Photo: Appearance of Ranga #3 Photo: Appearance of Ranga #3 Photo: Size comparison - Sheaffer 300 with Ranga #3 Writing I had ordered the pen with Bock dual tone extra fine nib. I use the pen to write work related things I learn when at home. It is not possible for me to take it in lab because generally I work at different places and write few words now and then. A large pen with screw in cap is not very practical (I have tried it using there.). At home, it works like magic though. The nib writes effortlessly with slight feedback which I like. I have tried using medium nib with Sheaffer 300 but I like the extra fine nib more. While on vacation I had left the pen for two weeks without using. The pen wrote without any hard-start after that. End Notes This pen is a very good writer. I use it daily for writing down things I learn. After using ebonite, it has become my favourite pen material. I had bought a Platinum 3776 around the same time I received Ranga #3 and it lies unused. I am thinking of buying a couple of Ranga pens shortly and have received the quote for them. Fountain pens, I have learned would last a long time and I intend to use these few pens I buy for a long time to come.
