Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Omas Grand Paragon Black HT Fountain Pen, which comes with a large OMAS presentation box (including outer). The pen has been regularly, but carefully used, and is presented in overall lovely condition – there is a lot of wear to the inner lining of the presentation box, which is usual on OMAS boxes of this period.
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 Grand Paragon replaced the earlier and smaller version of the Paragon.
The pen is fitted with an 18k medium nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
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”.
