Flex Pen Under Rs 1000?

Recommended Posts

I'm really fond of the dip nibs especially my Brause No 141 . But I'm looking for a flex nib Fountain pen under Rupees 1000 . I have no qualms about the exterior design I rather hardly care about its age . But then I'm low on budget right now and wouldn't mind a bad looking pen I just want an Extra fine or fine tipped flex pen . I have checked the Lucknow stores the price they quoted me was over 25000 .I have high hopes from FPN.

You could get an inexpensive pen of your choice from Asapens.in (no affiliation) and have them substitute the stock nib with the right size flex nib. If it's not indicated as an option, contact them to ask. It will be very easy to stay within your budget and get a good pen.

Go to the group buy in the PIF section. Ambitious flex nibs costs about 100rs.

#6 flex nib fit Airmail / Wality 71J, 69T, 69EB (ebonite) or 71JT available in price range of Rs 180 to Rs 350

How did the search go?


I have tried the following options and all options have worked for me,

- A modified KIM pen by fellow FPNer S-K (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/292647-kim-jumbo-with-flex-steel-nib/)

- The Gama Ezuthani can be fitted ith a Gillot (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/267615-ezhuthani-desk-pen-from-gama/)

- Airmail / Wality 71J, 69T, 69EB (#6 flex nibs or other similar sized ones)

I managed to get a Kim & Co Jumbo sized pen with a semi flex nib from Rafi. A tad rigid and scratchy. I suppose will smoothen out with use.

I spoke with the local pen dealer shop here in Lucknow "Anupam Bhartiya" ,who were once manufacturer's of Anupam Bhartiya Pens , the owner assured me that he has somewhere a box filled with old flex FP nibs, I even found one but it was a broad one and it didn't fit in any of my pens. He gave me an extremely cheap pen to work with meanwhile which accepts dip nibs including my Esterbrook No 128 for Rs 25 it is called a Rector133 . But I have to dip the pen in Ink before it works . If you ever come to Lucknow do not forget to visit this particular shop , these guys have really cool collection of dip nibs. No affiliation with the shop .

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
