We'll also give you the option of a silver or gold colored clip, or no clip at all. (If you elect to get this model without a clip, please be advised that there is a 1x3mm notch where the clip fits, and when the clip is removed the line between the derby and the rest of the barrel disappears except for this small rectangle.)

Great construction, super customizableReview by Rob L
I saw a you tube video of M.S.Pandurangan (who is the owner and penmaker of Ranga) making his pens on a lathe. I was completely mesmerized. I just had to have one of these hand made beautiful pens. I bought the #3 in brown ripple ebonite in matte finish. This is a classy, understated pen. People whom I've shown the pen to can't believe that the material is rubber, as it almost looks like wood. The size is just right for using unposted. Mine was a little tight to insert an international ink converter, but a few seconds with a 5.5 mm drill bit to hand ream the inside of the section allowed my converter to fit.

The other part of the customizability is that this uses a JoWo #6 nib unit. I use a custom ebonite feed and Jowo #6 housing from Flexible Nib Factory, and a 14K gold flexible nib from FPR. This feed and nib combination won't railroad, even when the nib is fully spread at 2mm of separation.

You can now purchase this pen at lower cost from Peyton Street Pens than what Ranga itself are selling them for from their website in India. (Posted on 3/10/2019)

Domestic US Shipping Policy: For the most part, shipping to US addresses is free and is made via first class mail.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country.
