Ranga Acrylic Fountain Pen 4Cs


Olga-F

Recommended Posts

Dear FPN Users!

I am writing with fountain pens only 3 months and this is my first review.

I have bought a Ranga acrylic fountain pen from ebay for $49.99, directly from the "rangahandmadepens".

I choose a Schmidt fine nib.

 

My pen is light-green and very bright. It came in a nice handmade box, together with another (added for free) "Oliver Exam" transparent pen, and a plastic device for washing.

 

The Ranga acrylic pen is very beautiful and accurately made. Cap closes with a pair of turns, and rotation of the cap while closing the pen is very smooth. It is convenient for me, to hold the pen.

The Schmidt nib is hard, but extremely smooth, it is a pleasure to write with. (The nib seems to be very close to the nibs which are used in the Faber-Castell pens, not Graf von Faber Castell.)

 

The second transparent pen has words "Oliver 100% Steel B-Co" on its nib. It gives a thiner line, and the line admits a slight variation of thickness.

 

Surely I can recommend these pens. They are both reliable and beautiful, and I hope to buy one more Ranga pen sometimes...

Best regards, and sorry for (possibly many) mistakes in English language, Olga

Hello Olga,

 

Congratulations on your first review. :thumbup:

 

Your new pen is very eye-catching and will probably attract some attention when you take it out.

 

Enjoy. :) I'm tempted to get one myself; :puddle: it looks like a fun pen.

 

Have you had any skipping or hard starts?

Dear Mister Kandan, thank You again for the nice pen!

And NOS (New Old Stock) is right, I am a woman :)

ParkerDuofold: No, no hard start, no skip, no leak, it writes very good from the box.

My ink (on the picture) is the simple Russian ink called "Raduga" (Rainbow).

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
