Group Buy – Lotus Vikrant & Lotus Lekhak

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.

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.

1
comes in a faux Leather cover box which is protected by the cardboard sleeve

 

2
the pen comes with a velvet sleeve

 

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.

TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 28 November 2017

The thought of the day is inspired by one of the legends in low cost, affordable architecture in India. Apart from low-cost architecture, he was the pioneer exposed brick facade, brick jaalis, and maximization of light and ventilation. He was British born Indian Architect, Laurie Baker.

The pen in use today is a special pen with the special nib. It is Kanwrite Desire with Architect Nib. The ink used is Lamy Turquoise.

The nib on this is fabulous. Got hold of this from Mr. Awasthi of Kanwrite at this years’ Pelikan Hub.

TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 28 Feb 2017

Today’s thought is by Ovid. He was Roman Poet who lived in the period of Augustus and his actual name was Publius Ovidius Naso. He was ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature. Ovid talks more about his own life than most other Roman poets.

 
img_20170228_0831201

The pen in use is Ranga Model 3C which I got from the Group Buy. The pen is fitted with JoWo 1.1 Dual tone nib and is inked with Diamine Eclipse.

img_20170228_0831451

img_20170228_0827491

I really love ebonite as the material for the pen and this white blue swirl is something amazing. You have to hold in the hand to actually see and feel the beauty of the material.

Word for Wednesday: 22 Feb 2017

Today I am using  Guider Onyx which looks extremely similar to Nakaya Piccolo is fitted with #5 Steel Medium Nib from Wality and it is filled with Iroshizuku Momiji ink. The nib is ground to medium cursive italic.

 

dsc03573

 

The Word for this Wednesday is Exacerbate and it means to make more violent,bitter or to worsen or intensify.

In Sentence: Sahil chose to exacerbate the argument by spilling Rakshit’s Diamine inks on the floor.

TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 07 Feb 2017

I know I am late with this post. Again busy due to workload. But anyways here it is, my blog entry for Tuesday Thoughts.

The thought for today comes from George Sand. She was a noted French Novelist is famous for her so-called rustic novels.

img-1

 

I am using Ranga Zeal which I got from a group buy last year. The pen is inked with the only Noodler Ink I have left ” Noodler’s Antietam“.

dsc03409

 

It is fitted with #6 Schmidt Broad Nib which is ground to Stub and now it writes exactly to my liking.

dsc03424

Do you ground your own nibs?? Or have you ever tried to do so to suit your handwriting ??

INK REVIEW -DAYTONE OLIVE BROWN

I received few Ink bottles from one of my friend in Indore which are Daytone Fountain Pen Inks. Daytone Inks are manufactured by Daylight industries and they are into ink manufacturing since 1956. More information can be found about the company here: Daytone Webpage

Apart from Inks, they manufacture a lot of other stationary items. But this review is about one of the fountain pens inks that they manufacture.

The inks that they manufacture ( 15 Nos. – increased from 8 Nos.) are as follows:

  1. Blue Black
  2. Emerald Green
  3. Brilliant Red
  4. Crimson
  5. Turquoise Blue
  6. Deep Black
  7. Royal Blue
  8. Bright Violet
  9. Havana Brown
  10.  Mauve
  11. Dark Grey
  12. Dark Brown
  13. Olive Brown
  14. Rose Red
  15. Yellow Ochre

Also, I would like to add that I got these inks from my friend Daman who was kind enough to lend me the additional 7 colors for review.

This review is about OLIVE BROWN ink from Daytone.

dsc02809
Daytone Olive Brown – Ink Bottle

Daytone Havana Brown comes in 60 ml plastic bottles and is priced at Rs. 20 Each (Indian Rupees). I hate their ink bottles it is most of the times next to impossible to insert the pen and fill ink in the pen.

The properties of the ink are similar to Havana Brown though the color is different. The color is exactly like Greenish Brown Olives. To me, it is quite an unusual color it writes brown when wet and dries towards the green olive color. I love the color of the ink but it ain’t that saturated and also I found out that the ink is more fluidic as in more watery.


INK SPLASH

dsc02785
Daytone Olive Brown – Ink Splash on JK Cedar 100 gsm

The color is exactly like green olives which are like a greenish brown color and it is more towards brown where there is ink pooling.


INK DROPS IN WATER

dsc02803

INK SWABS

Daytone Olive Brown – Ink Swab (From top to bottom – 3 swabs, 2 swabs, and 1 swab)

WRITING SAMPLES

dsc02772
Daytone Olive Brown – Writing Sample on JK Cedar 100 gsm

The ink Performs best in Bold and wet medium nibs and looks faded in stub and fine nibs. I believe wetter stub nibs will suit this ink better. Ink also subtle shading.


BLOW UP WRITING SAMPLES

dsc02794
Daytone Olive Brown – Blow Up writing Sample – 1

WATERPROOF TEST

dsc02791
Daytone Olive Brown – Waterproof Test (Drip Test on Left and Rub Test on Right)

Ink is not at all waterproof or resistant almost everything gets washed out but yes there are still some lines visible. It also fades away if continuously exposed to sunlight for a longer duration.


COMPARISON WITH SIMILAR COLORS

dsc02796
Daytone Olive Brown vs Daytone Havana Brown vs Sheaffer Skrip Brown vs Waterman Absolute Brown

From above samples, it is evident that the green is more towards the green side like green bottled olives which have certain brown tinge.


CONCLUSION

The color is beautiful.  It has no feathering (barring the closeup with medium nib) and has lovely flow. Lubrication is okay. There is not much shading which is visible. Ink drying times are around 12 seconds.

Following are the summation of ink properties:

  • Feathering: No
  • Sheen: No
  • Shading:  Little
  • Lubrication: Moderate
  • Flow: Very Good
  • Water Resistance: Bad
  • Drying Times: Very Good
  • Nib Creep: No
  • Clogging: None
  • Odor: None

The ink can be bought from Amazon and Snapdeal. One of the links is given below.
