Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this Omas Paragon Non-Faceted Arco Bronze Spina de Pesce Fountain Pen, which comes with its large OMAS presentation box and information booklet. The pen has been lightly used and is presented in overall fantastic condition – there are a couple of tiny marks on the clip.
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 example is crafted from Arco Bronze celluloid version and it requires no introduction… with it being arguably the most sought-after pen material on the planet, alongside Arco Verde. With its myriad of golden brown ones, it’s a material that simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The difference in this version, is that the barrel, section and cone is cut at an angle to create what OMAS called the ‘Spina de Pesce’ of ‘fishbone’ pattern. The trim is gold-plated.
The pen is fitted with a 18k oblique double broad nib and it’s a piston filler, so your choice here is bottled ink.
The important details are as follows…
Nib: Oblique Double Broad
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”.
