Ranga pens are one of the leading Indian pen manufacturers and often offer group buys on the fountain pen network, which is where I bought this.
The pen is handmade from premium Golden Brown ebonite which I opted to have in the more unusual Bakul (matte) - or unpolished finish).
Like many Indian pens, capped it's quite big but the ebonite makes it light and uncapped it's a nice size. It can be posted but this makes it huge. In this model, the step between the grip section and the barrel is nicely graduated and the screw threads are smooth making for a comfortable writing experience.
The nib is a #6 Bock 1.1 steel stub nib which writes well and gives a little line variation.
Filling system: cartridge converter included and it can be eyedroppered (but please let me know if you're returning it inked!)
Length capped: 15 cm (6”)
Length posted: 18.8cm (7.4”)
Section diameter: 1.2cm (0.5”)
Body diameter 1.4cm (0.55”)
Weight (empty): 26g
Excellent - well used but no scratches or chips or dents. Posting is fine.
Shipping cost is for UK only. Not available to hire outside the UK.
Packaging was minimal with this pen but it will arrive packaged in a re-useable sleeve. Please return it in the same sleeve.
Choice of ink:
I have a wide range of inks and these are all listed on my profile, please choose which you'd like to try. One of my favourite inks for this pen is Colorverse String. If you'd rather receive the pens empty, that's fine too - just let me know.
