My Personal Pens: OMAS 360 Magnum

I sold my OMAS 360 Magnum and then Azizah gave me another one because I missed it so much.  I absolutely love the triangular profile of this pen, and it has a very smooth nib.  I have not done a full review of this particular pen, but I have reviewed an identical model with a fine nib a long time ago.
