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.
Let’s have a look at the OMAS Paragon in the beautiful Arco Bronze celluloid. I love this pen: it has a very smooth 18k gold nib, and it holds a lot of ink. The fine nib is very smooth and an absolute pleasure to use, and the pen has a great size. The Arco celluloid is hard not to love. I have done a full review of this pen too, if you’re interested.
This Stipula Etruria Magnifica in the Alter Ego finish is a nice, large pen with a clever piston mechanism. Although I like the finish, this pen is particularly special to me because of the very fascinating titanium nib, which is very springy and has excellent “snap-back”. This pen was limited to 351 fountain pens. I have not yet done a full review of this pen, but I will record one when I get a chance.
