New Arrival – Lotus Shikhar

Indian Fountain Pen market has lately seen a lot of new entrants and among them, Lotus is one of them. They initially made a lot of prototypes before actually taking a plunge in the market.

Lotus Shikhar

 

 

Lotus Pens is based out of Mumbai and they make custom pens and handpainted pens also. They caught my eye with the simple looking elegant pen, Shikhar (seems to be inspired by Sailor KOP). And I approached them for buying one of the Shikhar’s as it comes in various ebonite options. Ebonite they use is Japanese Nikko ebonite.

So today I am showing the glimpse of the new pen that arrived a few days back.

Shout out to Tarun Durga for letting me write with his Lotus Shikhar which actually spurred me to get this beauty.

 

Below are the few more images of the pen and my pen comes with black JoWo Broad nib to match with the black coloured clip.

The review will be coming soon after I have had enough to say and write about this pen.
