Chatting About My Pens Part 4: Arco Pens

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.

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.

My Personal Pens: OMAS Paragon Grand in Arco Bronze

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.
