Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Omas Milord London Smoke HT Trim Fountain Pen, which comes with its OMAS presentation box (including outer) and paperwork. The pen has been lightly used and is presented in excellent condition – there is a spot of plating loss on the nib, but this doesn’t effect the writing experience.
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 Milord was part of the Arte Italiana collection and features a twelve-faceted design. This London Smoke version was introduced to celebrate their 90th Anniversary – produced from pearlised grey cotton resin, which recalls the ‘London Smoke’ of the 1920s. The trim is rhodium-plated.
The pen is cartridge / converter (supplied), so you have the best of both worlds when it comes to ink.
It’s fitted with an OMAS broad ‘Extra Flessible’ 14k nib which were renowned for their line variation – it’s important not to push these nibs too far, as they’re very soft!
The important details are as follows…
Nib: Broad 14k Extra Flessible
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”.
