Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this delightful Omas Paragon Saft Green Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with an OMAS presentation box, OMAS pouch and information booklet. The pen has been carefully used and is presented in overall excellent condition – there are the faintest ink stain marks on the grip section, but this is simply mentioned for a complete description.

 

 

 

 

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 legendary Saft Green celluloid, which has myriad of gold, black and green tones. The trim is gold-plated. The greek key design can be found on the capn and on the section the year marking, of 1992, can be found.

 

 

 

The pen is fitted with the legendary ‘Extra Flessible’ nib – this is a 14k extra fine example. These aren’t true flex nibs, so don’t push too hard, but with gentle use you can great delightful line variation.

 

 

 

The pen features a piston filling mechanism, so bottled ink is your choice here.

 

 

The important details are as follows…

 

 

Condition: Excellent

 

 

Box: OMAS

 

 

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.

As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”.
