Brand new here and having a crisis. 

The cap to my Omas 360 Oversize Fountain Pen got stepped on.  (don't ask.) That pen is my favorite. 

 

I sent it to Kenro Industries (the authorized US repair agent) and they sent it on to Omas in Balogna. (That was 4 - 5 months ago.) 

 

They called Monday morning to tell me : 

a.  Omas cannot repair (replace) the cap to your 360 Oversize.

b.  Omas will return damaged pen as is, or 

c. Omas will send you a new "Omas 360 Medea Fountain Pen, with Gold trim." 

 

I cannot find a photo of a "Medea..." anywhere so I do not know what I am trading for.

 

Does anyone know anything about the Medea?  Where can I see what it looks like? 

 

Actually, no matter how nice the Medea is, I am conflicted about surrendering my old friend even though the cap is no longer useful.

 

Advice?

 

Thank you my friends ...

Dale

Why carry one pen when four will do!

Bobby - 
I looked at that - the photo doesn't match the description.  Supposed to be 'triangular' but photo looks 'octogonal.'  That's what confused me... 

Thx, Dale

Hi Dale,

 

I can imagine how you feel.  If I were you, I would take the Medea.  You can find pictures of 360 Medea Bordeaux on the Internet; it is triangular.

 

As far as your 360 is concerned, I doubt you'll be able to find a replacement cap.  

 

I have sent you a private message with another idea.

 

Best regards,

David
