Hey everyone, I have really enjoyed perusing the forums on here for the past year or so. I finally have a -hopefully- interesting question or topic. Bought this pen off of ebay & cannot find any information about it.


The seller described it as "...a LE set made for Fahrney's Pen shop.

Listed here is the Proto-type set in beautiful swirl acrylic.
Fountain pen has a wonderful 18k medium nib with ebonite feed.
Each pen will come in an OMAS pen sleeve and you will receive an OMAS 90th anniversary journal."
It seems at least real- everything else is a mystery to me  :huh:. I'm just hoping its a piston filler & that it writes well- first Omas I've bought! Thank you guys for the awesome community & thanks in advance for any help!  :D Merry Christmas!

I'm not sure we can answer this question for you.  You might want to contact Fahrney's directly and ask them.

It seems an Omas Bologna made in other pattern.

Ah thank you! Yes that is what it looks like- not a piston filler but likely at least a real Omas model =)

Yes, a Bologna in resin. Not sure of the name.
