My friend Sanjeev has just launched an "Extremely beautiful" pen under the brand name "Glare" and it's called THE GLARE C7. He has sent me 7 of the C7's with different nib variations to let him know what I feel about them.

The pens look extremely colorful and delicious. The attractive, radiant and highly polished designs make these pens instant head turners and make you want to hold them immediately. The designs on some of these pens are extremely rich and vivid...
The pen comes in 7 different design options.

Glare C7 is made up of extremely high quality acrylic that not just makes it look great but also feels amazing in the hands. But what really surprises you is how extremely lightweight this pen is.

The lightweight of this pen is also because of the minimal use of metal on it. Unlike the Glare 71, there are no chunky metal clips, bands and threads. The only metal you will find on this pen is the cute stainless steel clip and the ring at the bottom of the cap.

However, the build quality of this pen is exceptional with every part fitting smoothly and seamlessly in its place that makes the pen extremely durable. Plus, the polishing on it is top notch that makes it feel like you are holding an extremely premium pen.


The pen has a screw on cap and the cap has a screw on top that helps you to adjust the clip properly. The cap not just posts buttery smooth at the back of the pen but also provides perfect weight and balance to the pen while writing. You would love to write with this pen for long hours with the cap posted.

Now, this is a cartridge converter pen that accepts both international cartridges and converters. Now, if you want, with the help of some silicone grease... you can also convert this pen into a jumbo eyedropper.

The section area of this pen is also very well designed... It tapers down a bit and sits nicely between your fingers... So, you can write for long hours with this pen without hurting your fingers.

The stainless steel nib of this pen and its ebonite feed, both, are made in Germany, and so is the iridium tip of the nib.

And what's exciting is that you can unscrew the nib and the feed.. and replace it with a different one. And it's extremely easy to do so.

Glare C7 comes in 3 different nib options - Fine, Medium and Broad. Each option has 2 different color variations. The first is the simple stainless steel nib and the other is the gold plated one. All the nibs carry the same minimalistic design and compliment the overall look of the pen. A couple of diagonal lines running around the big breather hole look very cool. The size of the nib is engraved on it and so is the fact that the tip is made up of "German Iridium".

Now, I have just written briefly with all these nibs but I am already extremely impressed with all 3 of them. All the nibs write incredibly smooth and fast... and literally glides effortlessly on the paper. In fact, writing super fast with them would not be an issue at all. You would really enjoy writing with these nibs. The ink flow of all the three nibs is exceptional and that is because of their amazing nib and feed combos. And the more i am writing with them, the better the ink flow is getting.

I am really impressed by all the three nibs... The work Glare has done on them, really shows.

Now, how well this pen performs would depend on the price of this pen and how aggressive Glare India promotes it in the international markets. And if priced well, I would definitely recommend this pen for the sheer writing pleasure that it provides. You can soon purchase these pens from Store108.com

Honestly, it depends on the price of the pen, Mark. If priced well, this is a seriously good pen.

However, there was a thing that I didn't include in the video (i thought that would make the video way too long). The way Glare C7 is written on the center band - it looks tacky. I wish they improve it in the retail units.

These pens look a *lot* like the Himalaya pens sold by Fountain Pen Revolution - though made from different acrylics. Not *identical* (slightly different in shape, and the Himalaya doesn't take cartridges), but pretty close. Depending on price, I'd say you're right: the Himalaya is a really wonderful pen, so the Glare C7 should also attract a strong following!

Someone said in the comments section of the Youtube video that this pen has the same design as mohi pens. Has anyone tried that pen?

You are more than welcome. I am glad you liked it :)

I am going to be reviewing a lot more fountain pens in the coming weeks - Pilot MR, Some Indian Students Fountain Pen, Jinhao X450, Hero Pens etc.

      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
    • Daneaxe
      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
