TUESDAY THOUGHTS – 29 May 2018

Hey All

Today’s thought is inspired by Persian Poet, Saadi Shirazi. Saadi is widely recognized as one of the greatest poets of the classical literary tradition, earning him the nickname “Master of Speech”.

The pen in use is Ranga Model 4 which is inked with one of my favourite Indian Ink, Krishna Ghat Green

Below are few more images of the pen

This time after almost 2 yrs this is an effort for Group Buy for Model 4 & 4C and this group buy sees the introduction of Demonstrator version also. I have also reviewed the pen here: link
