Exotic woods were the theme of several limited edition Omas pens. This Omas Legni Pregiati is made of a dense South American wood known as Lignum Vitae. Beautifully cut and lacquered to offer the traditional Omas piston filling mechanism, you'll find this a very light-weight and delightful writing instrument. Sporting an 18k gold nib with platinum plated accents, it writes a fine line. Only a little chip in the lacquer visible in the photo at the top of the cap mars this pen's striking beauty. Omas even considered the dangers of ink staining the outside of the wooden section and barrel, so it included a special black plastic sleeve to protect the pen when filling it. Finally, its presentation box is inspired by "the 'box of woods' made by master shipwrights as a gift to the buyer of a new ship." 14.9cm capped.
