Pre-Owned Pens: Omas Paragon

Pre-Owned Pens: 4022 Omas Paragon
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $1,199.99
Vibrant rainbows of bronze arco celluloid are the hallmark of the popular Omas Paragon fountain pen. One of the most sought-after pens of the past decade is here. Its piston filler is in good working order. Only the lightest traces of wear mar the nearly pristine cap and barre. No cracks, brassing or deep scratches. Its two-tone 18k gold nib writes a smooth, wet medium line. There's a hint of drag as it writes. Not quite feedback but not quite buttery smooth, either. Paragon and Milord pens are difficult to define. Some years Paragons were smaller than other years. An unverified rule of thumb that we heard is that all Paragons are at least 14cm long when capped, and this one is 14.1cm capped. The barrel has a crisp "Omas Extra Italy" imprint.
