Ranga Model 3C Bakul (matte) Ebonite with Bock 1.1. stub

Description:
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!)

Choice of ink:
