What Indian Pens Are You Using Today - 2021 ?



Recommended Posts

It's the bamboo done in transparent, clear acrylic. It was a previous Ranga group buy. I guess I must have stuck the name on myself, to distinguish it from the (black with teal swirls) ebonite one I got earlier. And forgotten I made up a new name...

Gama Supreme Flat Ends in Green Rippled ebonite with Ambitious 35 mm Fine chrome finish nib and Sheaffer NNS feed. It is inked with KWZ IG Gummiberry ink. A bit dry ink works pleasantly well in fairly wet Ambitious nib.

Ranga Model 3 with Kanwrite flex nib, inked with Oster aqua.

 

When I used hot water to heat set the nib and feed, the process removed some of the shine on the section area. Does anyone know how to restore? Novus polish, maybe?

Nice color pen, I have one in a black-swirled reddish ebonite. At first I did not like it much but it's starting to really grow on me... I put in an Ambitious nib. Not sure what to do about the dulled section, but you might ask on the pen makers forum, somebody there might have a suggestion. Something similar happened to my Fosfor syringe filler and I used the finest side of one of those 6-sided nail buffers to touch it up. It's not back to what it was but I can somehow live with it... so, do let us know what you come up with and how it works for you.

That rollstop ring is really handsome!

Today I am using Airmail 69T Purple marbled pen with fine steel Nib and Feed from Sheaffer School pen. It is filled with Pilot Blue ink. This nib is just too good (writing and aesthetics both ) than the default gold tone nib which is a mismatch with chrome clip and band on the cap.

Now, where'd you get that nice roll stop? It really suits the thing well.

Since I've just put it up on another thread, I'll post it here too: ASA Maya in teal ebonite (bakul finish) - fitted with a 1.5mm stub nib unit sourced from fpnibs.com.

What ink are you using? It looks pretty :)

 

Not using any Indian pens today, but just cleaned out my Click glare rainbow eyedropper pen. I don't know whether it's eyedropper pens in general or just this one, but ink still kept dripping from the tip after using more than half a glass of water XD I've let it soak for now, hope all the ink will be gone after a good overnight soak :)

Today I am carrying Airmail 58C in Amber marbled colour filled with Pilot Blue ink. The nib and feed is replaced with Parker Beta Fine nib and feed. Works really well for me.

I'm using an ASA Galactic that I acquired recently. While I am new to the world of fountain pens and have a fairly modest collection, I'm completely in love with this one. It fits my hand perfectly, looks amazing (currently inked with Diamine Grape) and writes so well, makes me almost wish I didn't use laptops.
