Omas fountain pens remain some of the most sought after pens on earth for their beautiful celluloids, Italian luxury and scarcity now that Omas is no longer in business. Among the most sought after Omas celluloids is the black-and-yellow Burkina design. Our Omas Bologna Burkina fountain pen has flawless celluloid. No cracks or scratches. Its piston filler works beautifully with smooth, fluid ease. We aren't sure if this pen has ever been used beyond a few dips or a single fill. Unfortunately, we don't have its box, but it remains an amazing pen. There are some cloudy spots on the solid sterling silver section. Its 18k gold nib is marked fine, but we find it writes closer to medium, as is common with many European nibs. There's a hint of feedback, but we think it is mostly due to the fact the nib was never broken in by another writer. It will smooth out as it conforms to your hand as you write. An oversized pen at 14cm capped.
