Ranga Acrylic Fountain Pen 4Cs



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?

 

- Anthony

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).

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      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.
