Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Omas Paragon Arco Verde Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with a standard OMAS presentation box (some light wear to this) and information booklet. The pen has been carefully used over the years and is presented in overall lovely condition – there is some wear to the gold-plating on the piston ring and the clip. The original OBB nib was reground to an EF by leading US nibmeister, Dan Smith.
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.
This is the Arco Verde celluloid version and it requires no introduction… with it being arguably the most sought-after pen material on the planet, alongside Arco Bronze. With its myriad of green, black and almost white tones, it’s a material that simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The arco pattern lines extremely well between the barrel and cap, with it being a bit off between the barrel and piston cone.
The pen is fitted with an 18k extra fine (as mentioned above, reground from an OBB) and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
Nib: Extra Fine
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”.
