Hi all,

This is my first handwritten review. I am absolutely chuffed with the pen. Hope you will enjoy!

Wow, I think MASSIVE is the correct word for this pen. Thanks for the review. It is a nice looking pen.

Thank you for the review and the mention. :)

I do not like the way the nib looks disproportionate to the rest of the pen. When Hari had some modified with a bigger nib and the cap was modified to accommodate the bigger nib, I jumped on the chance at owning one. Purely aesthetics but I think it makes a big difference. Pardon the pun. Mine also looks more of a flat top style.

Maybe it is due to the shape but mine can hold just under 1 ml.

Wow, that is a big pen! I like the clip.

Ivan, I like yours, too -- the flatter ends. Still too big for my hand, but very nice.

Ivan - Is that a pen, or was it's mommy scared by a baseball bat?

I like large pens, but that one seems almost over-the-top. Where can I get one fitted with a filler of some sort? (My work environment is not ED friendly.)

Hi Subramaniyam,

I just returned from Madras to see your review, good job, enjoy! the pen deserves a bigger nib.

Ivan , hold on to your O/S Black Jumbo with the special nib, the material your pen is made of is unfortunately no longer available, the newer rod stock has too many defects and getting a supply of good dark black ebonite is proving to be difficult.

Best
Hari

Hari317 might know.

Hari, I have no intention of getting rid of this pen. For me, it was a keeper from day one. :)
