Pens and Ink: Omas AIV Liquid green with Akkerman Groenmarkt Smaragd

Time to wake up this sleeping beauty #omas #arteitaliana #vision #limitededition #fountainpen #fpgeeks #fountainpenporn #funtainpen
This is where I decided I wholeheartedly loved Omas - the first time I held the Omas Arte Italiana Vision in my hands.  The beautiful design of the pen in a gorgeous liquid green color = indeed ART. I imagine OZ having buildings with this material in the Emerald city. Or it being some kind of kryptonite ... it has that dangerous magnetic pull. At any rate I could not stop thinking about it and went back to Akkerman at the end of the day and got it home with me. 

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
I got a bottle of Akkerman Groenmarkt Smaragd with it, which compliments the pen perfectly.

And this is how she writes. The B nib writes like it's slightly stubben and I love it! Also the shading of groenmarkt  smaragd ink is just lovely! #omas #arteitaliana #vision #akkerman #groenmarktsmaragd #fountainpenporn #fountainpenink #funtainpen #fpgee
The nib is a B that writes more like an 0.8 stub. A very smooth and wet writer.

This pen is definitely a piece of art! #omas #arteitaliana #fountainpen #fountainpenporn #funtainpen #fpgeeks #stubnibsunday
Love the accents on the pen and grip section. Even though it's metal, it does not feel slippery at all in long writing sessions.

Nib width comparison extra flessible medium to 18k b - I dare not to flex the extra flessible too much because it's really, really soft. The 18b has a little spring to it. #omas #fountainpen #fpgeeks #ogivaalba #arteitaliana #vision #liquidgreen #akkerman
Section comparison to the #Omas #arteitaliana and #ogivaalba - I have to say the metal section looks stunning but the cotton resin section feels better in hand in a prolonged writing session. #fpgeeks #funtainpen #fountainpen #fountainpenporn #comparison
Comparing the Ogiva medium extra flessible with the B 18k nib and sections. Both really gorgeous pens with their own personalities.

Suppose there is no surprise what my #mondaymatchup is for @gouletpens #mondaymatchupgiveaway this week 😉 Since it's the anniversary, I tried to do something special 😊 #stencildrawing #edroth #akkerman #groenmarktsmaragd #omas #arteitaliana #vi
Stencil doodles work brilliantly as well! By the way "smaragd" = Emerald in dutch & groenmarkt is an aria in The Hague. 

Next week a couple of vintage Omas pens.

Thanks for stopping by!
