This beautiful pen was sent to me by John, which is clearly an incredible generous gesture.  I love this pen: the weight, size, and feeling of it are magnificent and it writes just beautifully too.  I have also done a full review of this pen.

The OMAS 360 Magnum is one of my favourite pens ever, but how does it stack up to the newer version (I think OMAS referred to it as the “vintage” version, to distinguish it from the redesigned 360 model, which is a completely different pen that doesn’t have the pronounced triangular design)?
