I have tried to write a hand written review. Please forgive the handwriting.

Dear Mr. Tsdesai Sir,

 

Thanks a lot for you nice handwritten review and pictures. We have expedited your order actually:)

We don't have anything in Stock as most of them are sold out in advance:)

 

Regards,

Kandan.M.P

A nice looking pen and perfectly fine handwriting. Because Ranga uses a commercial nib you can always change it if you want to experiment with a different look and feel. Wanting more inks is a slippery slope that leads to wanting even more inks :)

Enjoy your new pen!

It appears that I am already on that slippery slope.

Thank you Bobje for liking my review. Actually I decided to buy this pen after reading your review of the model 8b. My hands are smaller, so went for the model 8. 😊

      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
