A
bout the Nanga:
If you are familiar with my pens, then you probably know I derive the names I use from Wikipedia's "list of the worlds tallest mountain peaks". This pen follows in that same tradition by being named after the Nanga Parbat mountain peak. The name "Nanga Parbat" means "Naked Mountain" with Nanga specifically meaning "naked". Since this pen appears to be absent or "naked" of any barrel threads, I thought Nanga would be a very appropriate name for the style. If you wish to read more about the Nanga Parbat mountain peak or about any of the other pen names, you can read them on my Pen Names Page.

Nanga Dimensions:
The Nanga is now available is several size versions: Standard, MAGNUM, and Midi. The Standard size Nanga has a capped length of about 6" (152.5mm) and uncapped length of about 5 1/4" (133.5mm). The max diameters are barrel .61" (15.5mm) and cap .64" (16.25mm). The MAGNUM size Nanga has a capped length of about 6 1/2" (165mm) and uncapped length of about 5 1/4" (146mm). The max diameters are barrel .69" (17.5mm) and cap .73" (19mm). The Midi size Nanga has a capped length of about 5" (127mm) and uncapped length of about 3 11/16" (94mm). The max diameters are barrel .535" (13.5mm) and cap .55" (14mm).

The unique forward mounted threads on the Nanga allow it to have a nice free flowing style. The smooth transition across the front-section and barrel allows it to have a smooth and graceful flow along the entire length of the barrel. As the different size versions show, the design also allows some flexibility in the diameters so it could be adjusted to fit small or large hands. As with most other JEB's PENs, the Nanga can be ordered in any of the materials shown or your material of choice. The pen includes a steel Meister nib in your choice of finish and tip size. The standard inking system is Cartridge/Converter, but if you like to use your pens as eyedroppers, you can order the Nanga with a special rubber o-ring that seals the section to the barrel so it can be filled directly with ink (not available for the Midi). The larger #6 nib is the best size for the Standard and MAGNUM, while the smaller #5 is required for the Midi. Nib finishes available for STEEL nibs are: 2-tone, polished steel, Black Oxide (#6 only), or Ruthenium (#5 only). Current tip sizes are x-fine, fine, medium, broad, and two italics (1.1 both; 1.4 for #5 only, and 1.5 for #6 only). 14 & 18K Gold nibs are also available as a special order.

Nanga Options and Upgrades:
The Nanga is another pen style that allows for a few upgrades and options. You could add metal accent bands to the base of the cap, or add a HIDDEN RING clip (see the Tortoise Shell). The accent bands are available in several finishes (24k gold, nickel or Rhodium, and come in a variety of diameters with widths from 1 to 4mm (n 1mm increments). As stated above, you can also upgrade your pen with a 14k or 18k gold nib.

Inking system upgrades... Because of the barrel style, the Nanga is not very conducive to adding a blind-cap for a piston or button filler. So the only upgrade option available is the for mentioned eyedropper by adding the custom o-ring.

I also offer a variety of hand-made Pen Props and Pen Buttons. You can order a Pen Prop in a material to match your pen, or any one of the wooden styles made in a variety of stained or dyed colors. The Pen Buttons are available for any of the clipless pens.
