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:

The gold nibbed Indian beauties. Rare as hen's teeth now.

One of the older employees, I have not seen this gentle man for the last 2-3 years.

Daddy, please no more pens - we need food, clothes, books, DENTISTRY...

How do the Indian pens with gold nibs write? Are they tuned better than their steel-nibbed brethren? Are the nibs hallmarked as well?

Enrico, yes the places are still running and quite well I must add.

The pen in the 4th picture from the top, second from the left, with the "wrapped-around" nib looks very interesting! What is it?

It is a Brahmam pen with a totally handmade 14Ct conical nib. You can see a somewhat similar nib made by another Indian pen maker here: link

Wish I had a B&M like that. The closest thing I have is the "Pen shop" which is rather pricey and I have only bought ink from. Even in terms of ink they only stock the major brands and non of the more interesting specialist ones like Diamine or J Herbin.
