Unique yet no less elegant in this regal color, the Omas Arte Italiana Maroon Fountain Pen, Paragon Aubergine with Ruthenium Trim and 18k Ruthenium Medium Nib represents the past and the future of the Italian fountain pen. Originally designed by the company's founder Armando Simoni, this latest incarnation of the Arte Italiana is a rich pearlized burgundy cotton resin. Trimmed with rare ruthenium, a non-reactive element that combines beauty with wear-resistance, this is a design perfect for a fine writing instrument you intend to use for a lifetime. Faceted with eight sides, the octagon shape iconic for an Italian fountain pen, the 18 carat ruthenium nib is one with the silver section. The clip and single band on the cap have been reimagined, but harken back to the pen maker's tradition, albeit with an exaggerated "O" in the engraving on the band. A handsome pen, and likely to inspire some fine writing. If you have but one fountain pen, this may be the winner, and with its included medium width nib it will offer you both ease and flexibility when writing.
Omas is a famous name in Italian pen circles, and owning one will give any gentleman a sure link with an elegant tradition. Handmade since 1925, the company's headquarters in Bologna continues to produce well-designed and exquisitely made artisan writing instruments. The origin of this famous name is interesting, Omas being a shortened version of "the workshop of Armando Simoni," or "Officina Meccanica Armando Simoni" in Italian. Simoni's family is still involved with the operation of the business, and many of today's pens have the bones of one of Simoni's original designs. Fendrihan includes this collection of Omas pens in the repertoire of our online men's specialty store as they are among the finest writing tools available anywhere. Writers desiring an Italian point of view for their writing would do well to browse the Omas possibilities. We are certain here you will find a piece of Italian artistry that will not disappoint.
