Deccan Bullet Junior Fountain Pen In Green Ebonite



Recommended Posts

It is a copy of my blog post at https://inkpensblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/20/deccan-bullet-junior-fountain-pen-in-green-ebonite/

 

I have heard a lot about Deccan pens in FPN and other pen corridors and have been thinking about getting one. I contacted​ the store through their facebook page and then through WhatsApp. At that time, I was looking for a green ebonite pen as well. So, I chose to get a Deccan Bullet Junior pen in Green Ebonite which was readily available. The delivery was very prompt and I got this beauty in my hands within a weeks time after ordering.

It is a small pen and belongs to the category of pocket pens. But, when posted this becomes a normal sized pen and is very comfortable to hold. Unposted, it can not be used at all. It is slightly longer than a Kaweco Sport when unposted and is of the same length when posted.

It is polished well and very nice to look at. Polished red and green ebonites appeal to me. The clip is large for a small pen. It is a normal rolled metal clip. The top of clip juts out a lot and is bent at a 90° angle. Anyway, it is a very functional clip.

As can be guessed from the size of the pen, it is an eye dropper fill pen. I did not observe any leaks or burping. It came with a nice coating of silicon grease on the barrel threads.

The grip section slightly concave shaped and is very comfortable​ to hold. I end up holding it slightly higher (almost on the threads) due to the small size of the nib. The threads are not sharp enough to be trouble me.

The has steel flat ambitious nib. It is almost extra fine or ultra extra fine. (I don't have much experience with EF or UEF nibs, but it is much finer than the fine nib on pilot falcon). It wrote very smooth out of the box. Even though I like broader nibs, this nib is very nice.

In conclusion, it is a nice small pen with a good finish. I may not use it very regularly due to the nib size, it is a good addition to my collection.

nice review dinuraj, nice photos, and very nice little pen!

 

I have a very nice Deccan maya pen in black polished ebonite which Deccan modified for me to hold pelikan threaded nibs.

it's a fantastic pen, the possibility to mount pelikan vintage gold nibs is really great

 

I am thinking of getting another Deccan sooner or later as I am vey happy with the Maya, and really like your green ripple.

what is the best way to contact Deccan nowadays?

(forget facebook, I don't have an account and don't want to have one...)

 

thanks

The Deccan bullets are certainly worth it. Both the junior and the senior. Mine are in either glossy or matte black.

What is the difference between junior and senior?

How small (or big) is each?

My junior, capped, is about 11 cm in length. The senior is 13.6 cm long. The diameters (cap, barrel, section) are about the same, I think. So the senior is still a relatively small pen, in my book. But definitely more comfortable to write with than the junior. I do not post the senior's cap while writing, but the junior is not practical for me without posting its cap...

 

PS these days I am mostly using my larger pens though, although I also like the smaller ones...
