An Ode to Omas

Oh yes... let the unwrapping begin :) #fountainpen #fpgeeks #omas
After being seduced by Eclectitbits pictures on his instagram, I have completely fallen for this brand fountain pens. They are beautifully made and so amazing to write with. Not too long ago the news hit that the Omas Pen company might no longer make pens anymore. I feel lucky to have a few of these precious gems of fountain pens in my possession and with this post I want to do a tribute to Omas, following my friend Nicholas on his tribute.

The packaging is so pretty on the inside. And 3 guesses which color I got ;) #fountainpen #fpgeeks #omas #ogiva #alba #collectibles #pen #omg

"Italian creativity, History, Craftsmanship. The pleasure of writing. " 
Over 90 years of craftsmanship, it shows in their work!

You cannot go into #akkerman without being seduced by all the pretties there. And boy have I been seduced... #omas #arteitaliana #vision #limitededition #fountainpenporn #funtainpen #fountainpen #fpgeeks #unboxing

Really love the elegant packaging of #Omas #fountainpens And by the ink of choice you might have guessed which one of the two colors I went for... #fpgeeks #fountainpenporn #akkerman #arteitaliana #vision #limitededition #funtainpen #unboxing
They are definitely pieces of handmade ART, even the packaging is amazing!

The nibs and facets of the older pens are just gorgeous.

This nib 😍 #omas #ogivacocktail #blueangel #stub #funtainpen #Fpgeeks #nibporn #organicsstudio #julesverne #nautilusblue
The newer style nibs are also something spectacular!

The are a delight to write with.

A case of too many or too few? #theomasses #omas #Fpgeeks #FPN #fountainpennetwork #fountainpen #ogivacocktail #ogivaalba #paragon #writinginstruments #toolsofthetrade #collection
Gorgeous to display but also

I might have developed a brand focus 😍 #omas #omasexperience #Fpgeeks #fpn #fountainpen #fountainpennetwork #funtainpen #papsweden #dailycarry
suitable for every day carry.

La Mal du Pays - a quote from a book I am reading at the moment. Points for you if you can guess which book that is πŸ˜‰ #flexnib #flexnibfriday #omas #fountainpen #fpgeeks #teal #bluegreen
Le Mal Du Pays - A groundless Sadness Called forth in a persons heart by pastoral landscape.  A groundless sadness is definitely what I feel knowing that there might be no more Omas pens made. But as Nicholas so well put it, "we are only a custodian of these pens, they will live on long after we are gone..." I completely agree with this sentiment! 

Thank you Omas!
