Hello from Hyderabad, India

Hi I'm a newbie here thinking to start writing with a fountain pen again.

I had tried earlier with a classmate Octane but the nib was too sratchy still continued  with the two barrels and later switched back to ball pen.

 

Had seen fountain pen all my childhood but never could write with one.

 

Then through out wet shave fb group got in touch with few like minded people who still write with them.

 

One of the makers Pinkwoolf also does send a lovely handwritten note with a fountain pen that ignited the aviation fuel build up which was awaiting ignition.

 

Very unfortunate to hear that the companies have gone so greasy that even with inflation included the prices are no match to what it was earlier in india.

 

Have shortlisted

-Click Aristocrat demo medium nib pen as the initial days per ml keeps haunting.

-Sheafer no nonsense

-Diamine black ink

-Bril black ink

Pilot V pen fountain pen is an excellent starter fountain pen at 100rs. It can be refilled even though it is not designed for it. No need to tolerate scratchy nibs. 
 

also look at V’sign/ Beena pens for economical but nice writers. I like the Antic. 
 

no need to spend much initially on the hobby. 
 

you are in Hyderabad. Have you heard of the Deccan pen stores or Jk pen stores ?

welcome!

do follow Hari's advice,

in India you have some of the most astounding pen makers who still produce pens by hand with skills that elsewhere are long gone and substituted by machines.

Dig into your local fountain pen traditions, there is great satisfaction to be had.

Hello and welcome :) Hari gives some very sound advice there. I am a big fan of Indian pens, and use a number of them daily - including some very economical models.

Yeah deccan pen store i heard about and have also visited him in ameerpet one.

The owner does have some great sound knowledge and i had bought a pierre cardin triumph from there just recently as i didnt have much idea on fp's.

 

Thats why went with demo medium nib.

 

Thanks a lot for those two will shortlist them as well

 

 

Only issue is transit.

I did visit the deccan pen store in abids today.

 

He said all shipments have stopped due to price hike from April 1.

So bril,Daytone,Diamine is all out of stock.

 

Daytone would arrive by tomorrow

Diamine by next week end

Only available were hero,Camlin in some new blue coloured packaging

Greetings Shyahi. That's a fine old Parker 61 Insignia in your photo. That precise pen was my very first FP, and like yours it lost its arrow. I wrote my PhD with it (100,000 words, all hand written as they were 40+ years ago!). Does yours still work?

The pen in the pic is likely a wing sung.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
