Thanks very much for looking at our listing for this delightful Omas 360 Wild Celluloid Fountain Pen, which comes with its large OMAS presentation box (including outer) and paperwork. The pen has been regularly used over the years (so some usage marks), but is still presented in overall very good condition. 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 360 was arguably their most recognisable pens, with its dramatic triangular design. The 360 in Wild Celluloid is a combination that works absolutely perfectly! The cap and barrel are crafted from this legendary wild celluloid, with the trims being rhodium-plated. The pen features a piston filling mechanism, so bottled ink is your choice here. It’s fitted with the rare 52 degree nib, which is similar in style to the Sailor zoom nib. It was a special order nib and in short, 52 degrees is the angle at which a pen is usually used, but if you lower the angle below this, then you get a broader line, and if you increase the angle to a more vertical style, then you get a thinner line. The important details are as follows.. As the Financial Times said recently in their How To Spend It publication – “izods is an e-cache of ultra fine fountain pens”. This pen is ready for many years of use or simply to be tucked away as part of a wider collection. Please take a look at our other listings for a broad selection of fine writing instruments. We’re one of the largest purchasers of fine writing instruments in Europe, so please do get in touch if you’re looking to sell one, two or even a complete collection. We’re delighted to have launched our first own brand fountain pen, the izods paradigm – crafted from ebonite, with an 18k nib and piston filling mechanism.
