Let’s compare the OG OMAS 360 Magnum and the Titan Pens 720.
This pen has had an interesting life, so I thought I’d present an update on what it has been through.
My friend Peter lent me this pen – thank you! Every Milord I’ve ever held is a piston-filler, so I blindly assumed this model was too, but it is a cartridge-converter pen. I am so sorry for not getting that right in the video: this shows the importance of empiricism!

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.
In this video I discuss my opinion on fountain pens as an investment and the recent spike of interest in Arco celluloids.
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.
