Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this delightful Omas 360 Wild Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with its large OMAS presentation box (including outer) and paperwork. The pen has been regularly used over the years (so some usage marks), but is still presented in overall very good condition.

 

 

OMAS require no introduction and since their sad demise in January 2016, the hunger from fans and collectors for great examples of their writing instruments has increased dramatically! The company was founded by Armando Simoni and the full name was Officina Meccanica Armando Simoni, abbreviated to OMAS.

 

 

The 360 was arguably their most recognisable pens, with its dramatic triangular design. The 360 in Wild Celluloid is a combination that works absolutely perfectly!

 

 

The cap and barrel are crafted from this legendary wild celluloid, with the trims being rhodium-plated.

 

 

The pen features a piston filling mechanism, so bottled ink is your choice here. It’s fitted with the rare 52 degree nib, which is similar in style to the Sailor zoom nib. It was a special order nib and in short, 52 degrees is the angle at which a pen is usually used, but if you lower the angle below this, then you get a broader line, and if you increase the angle to a more vertical style, then you get a thinner line.

 

 

The important details are as follows…

 

 

Condition: Very Good

 

Box: OMAS

 

Nib: 52 Degree

 

 

With every pen that we sell we provide a card that includes the manufacturer, model, serial / limitation number and date it was purchased from us. We do this because our customers like to have documentation showing that it’s been purchased from a trusted seller. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
