In this new series of videos, I chat about my pens. There will be no writing sakomples here: if you’re interested in that, please check out my reviews of the individual pens or see my Personal Pens videos.
In this fourth installment, I talk about the pens made of Arco Bronze celluloid, made by OMAS, Oldwin, and Armando Simoni Club.
This pen was kindly lent to me by Emmanuel of Armando Simoni Club Pens. What I forgot to mention in the video is that the ruthenium coating on the nib appears to be less sensitive to developing “nib crud”, as less ink seems to stick to the laser engraving in the nib.
After meeting again at the DC pen show, Emmanuel of the Armando Simoni Club lent me this pen and after using it for a few days, I had to buy it: it is a stunning piece in the much sought-after arco bronze celluloid, with a great nib and a cool filling system.
