The First Omas

My perfect Omas Princess arrived yesterday, and it is superb. This is the 'Saft Green' colour from the Omas Celluloid Collection.

The nib is a Fine, but writes more like a Medium, so I guess it will go off to Brisbane to get a little nib work done. I am toying with the idea of having the nib made into an Extra Fine Cursive Italic.

I've removed the ribbon ring from the top of the Princess, and will replace it with a similar brass ribbon ring - this is so that the silk tassel stays perfect and the pen is more practical.

Sadly, I think Omas addiction has begun. I am enquiring about the price of an Omas Dama, or for a little more money I could get the Omas Venice Carnivale. The Carnivale has been in my sights for a little while now, and I would love to add it to my collection for the right price. The right price is of course, much less than anyone will ever sell it for.

In other news my Pilot MYU 701 arrived this morning and it is great! The Fine nib is more like a superfine - just the way I like them. :)
