Having decided to further explore italic writing and calligraphy, I decided to purchase an Osmiroid pen. I found this pen on ebay and luckily it still works! It is quite fun to write with. Here's to the beginning of a new journey in pens!

My second Osmiroid! Decided to try both early incarnations. So far, I'm a fan!

Nice catch! I LOVE the Osmiroid 65s, and so do many others, judging by how they've gone way up in price. I like the fact that the 65 nib units are switchable with Esterbrooks.

Nice! I like Osmiroids: I have fourteen I use fairly regularly, with a lot of nibs...!

Always admired the Osmiroid broad nibs. Great writers.
