My Lotus Vikrant in lava aluminite with a 1.1mm stub arrived today! The packaging was very secure. A plastic box was wrapped in tape and cushioning material, and the pen box was inside the plastic one (great size - I'll use it to store some pen supplies in it). The box was the standard cardboard box, but the Vikrant was inside in a nice red pen sack. The material has great depth. It's a huge pen, which I am absolutely thrilled with! The craftsmanship is very good, as is the case on the cumberland ebonite Shikhar I have from Lotus. Very happy customer! (Forgive the lack of pictures - I may be able to take one or two later, but they'll only be cellphone camera ones.)

Congratulations. I got word that my alumilite Lekhak is on the way. Glad yours turned out so well.

Also waiting for my Vikrant in ripple ebonite. I was tempted to go with one of the acrylics but the ebonite on my other Lotus feels so lovely so had to get another one...

Hi Mehandiratta, I saw you received your Vikrant. I ordered one, and I'm curious how the main threads are done. So I imagine the metal threads are on the barrel - are they entirely made of metal or is it a layer of metal covering the ebonite? And how are the two materials joined together? Does it add some weight to the pen? Sorry for so many questions :)

My Lotus Vikrant in Turquoise Brown Lava Lamp (Aluminite) just arrived. When I first ordered it I was a little hesitant as I don't really see brown and blue going together well. Now that I hold it in my hand I see how gorgeous the combination can be. It is a very beautiful pen and I don't regret my purchase at all.

Hello, could you please share how the metal threads are integrated into the body? Is it a metal overlay on the acrylic body, or are the inner threads also made of metal?

Got my blue mono acrylic Vikrant last week. It is a very pretty pen.. Immediately contacted Lotus pens and placed an order for a red one as well. Loved the material, finish, comfort, weight and everything else about the pen.. Below are some snaps of the pen.

Just got mine today in the super-bright Orange Crush acrylic. Wonderful quality. Writes superb. I'm asking them now about another. I love the shape, but I would refer something with maybe an 11mm or 12mm section. This one might be a tad big, but we will see as I correspond to them.

 

Here is mine next to a Classic Pens Flame Red LM1 and a Platinum Izumo Tamenuri, but of which are similar in size/shape to the Lotus pens. They both just happened to be filled this week.
