Italian scientist and astronomer Galileo Galilei is best remembered for further confirming that the earth revolves around the sun, discovering the phases of Venus, discovering the rings of Saturn and 4 of Jupiter's moons. He was also a physicist and engineer. Nearly 400 years after his death, a pen was made in his honor: the Omas Galileo. This New Old Stock limited edition pen comes in a lucite case shaped like one of his telescope lenses. Complete with boxes and papers the "Paragon" shaped pen looks as if it has lightning streaking through its black cap and barrel. The piston still operates smoothly.
