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.
I got a bottle of Akkerman Groenmarkt Smaragd with it, which compliments the pen perfectly.
The nib is a B that writes more like an 0.8 stub. A very smooth and wet writer.
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.
Comparing the Ogiva medium extra flessible with the B 18k nib and sections. Both really gorgeous pens with their own personalities.
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!
