Ratnam Kalam Pen

Recommended Posts

I first heard about the Ratnam pens on this forum. Purchasing a pen from the first pen manufacturer in India; who are still very active; was not an opportunity to miss. After searching around a bit on the forum and facebook I finally found their contact and was pleasantly surprised to have Mr Shiva contact me through Whatsapp! In this age of ecommerce, it was a very interesting experience buying through Whatsapp. Mr Shiva was extremely kind to send me multiple images of all their models and I finally went with the Kalam - a unique desk pen. Hari's excellent informative review convinced me that this was the right choice for my first ebonite, Indian pen!

I received the pen within 2-3 days of ordering through local courier and have been using it happily for the past 4-5 months.

Hi, Thanks for sharing this review and thanks for your kind comments reg my review of similar pens.

 

The RATNAM stamp on the pen barrel is very interesting. Did you buy this from KV Brahmam and Bros in Rjy?

 

Reg pen stands, pls visit Reliable Pen Makers on AR Street, near Sutar Chawl. They should have a lot of local brand pen stands available.

 

HTH.

Thanks Hari. I bought this pen from Ratnam Pen works. Their address as per their Facebook page is Ratnam pen works, D.No: 10-7-33, Rangreejupeta, kotaghumam, Rajahmundry, India 533101. I initially contacted them over email and then Shiv Responded over whatsapp and helped me choose the right pen.

Great. This company is Ratnam (they are also known as KV Brahmam and Bros) which is different from Ratnamson pens (Ratnam Ballpen works). They are both brothers, and are sons of the founder Ratnam. I hope this helps. I love the vintage heat stamp on your pen.

 

Best

Hari

Thanks. I had read the history of the two brothers, but was always confused on the two company names. Now finally clear

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
