Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $649.99
Dark golden veins shoot like lightning through the sleek black celluloid of this stunning Omas Bologna fountain pen. In addition to its handsome design by Italy's master craftsmen, the writing experience is divine. Its 14k gold nib writes a buttery smooth medium line, and with just a touch of gentle pressure, it will expand to write a wider line by more than 1mm! Its piston works smoothly. You get the complete box and papers. Now here's the quirks. For some reason the designers added a rose gold pocket clip and possibly a rose gold nib with the rest of the trim looking like regular yellow gold. The only flaws on the pen are 3 discolored pits on the left edge of the pocket clip. Click the headline for close-ups. The cream-colored interior of the presentation box is starting to disintegrate with age, sticking to the blue-leather pen sleeve, which also shows a little wear. If given the choice between this preowned pen and a Montblanc, we'd take this Omas every time. 14.4cm capped.
