An homage to the master, the Omas Arte Italiana Fountain Pen, Paragon Black with 18k Gold Medium Nib recreates the classic look of the 1930-era pens designed by Armando Simoni, founder of the "Officina Meccanica Armando Simoni" we now know as Omas. A devotee of Greek culture, including its architecture, Simoni designed the original Arte Italiana writing instrument to mirror the 12-sided Doric column common in Greek building. In this handsome black celluloid offering, the multi sided barrel permits an extremely comfortable and secure grip. The sleek black vegetal resin of the pen is set off elegantly with gold plate, including the signature rolling clip, a section with grooves for seating the cap and a band proudly proclaiming the Omas name. Slim rings of gold on the barrel and the very top of the cap almost complete the picture. An 18 karat gold plated nib in a medium width is the crowning touch, intricate but practical, providing a durable and flexible writing tip. This is a pen to bring out proudly to sign important contracts, but to leave always within reach for your essential writing.
Handcrafting fine writing instruments since 1925, Omas artisans take more than 100 stages to complete one pen. The apprenticeship period just for mastering the polishing of the dozen celluloid sides exceeds two years. An Omas pen takes, from start to finish, more that 100 days to complete. Detailing this painstaking is almost unheard of with any other manufacturer, but is simply the Omas way. Founder Armando Simoni felt strongly that writing was the key to a man's soul, and took his responsibility to provide a perfectly balanced and mechanically sound writing partner to the authors among us seriously. Based on the premise that a pen should make writing pleasurable, Omas does not fail to exceed the vision viewed by the master.
