Dear All

Lotus Pens have been around in the market for now 1 year and I approached them for a Group Buy, almost half a year back. Initially, they refused me as they were still optimizing the production of the pens and managing few issues related to supply and logistics. Now that is sorted and they offered me to do a group buy and the official launch of 2 new models. Also, they are celebrating the 1-year anniversary.

Today I have been given this opportunity to launch the two new models via this forum and also do a group buy for the same. The group-buy prices are almost 25% less than selling price.

    I am sorry I missed this group buy, but I am wondering whether you can tell me if the Vikrant in CS Dartmoor on the Lotus site is in CS acrylic or is it an interpretation in Japanese ebonite (the words on the site are ambiguous).
    Furthermore those who bought the Vikrant and the Lekhak here may be able to tell me whether the step down on the Vikrant and the brass ring near the section makes the Vikrant less comfortable than the Lekhak? Both pens look superb.
