Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this wonderful vintage Omas Extra Black Resin Mechanical Pencil which comes with an IZODS presentation box and information booklet. The pencil has been carefully used over the years and is presented in overall excellent 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 barrel and cap are crafted from black resin. The greek key design can be found on the cap, with the trim being gold-plated.
The pencil is fitted with 0.7mm leads.
The important details are as follows…
With every pencil 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”.
