May I ask fpupulin and other members, what's your favourite Arco pen and why? I'll start first:

 

I like the Omas old style Paragon and Ogiva Arco Brown in gold trim the most. I really cannot decide between the two which is the absolute best. They are perfect size, perfect balance, perfect combination of warm colour tones, and the old style piston! In terms of the shape to show off best the Arco material, it's the Omas 360, but I don't like the snap cap (though I have never heard of any issues with this type of cap on Omas).

 

There is no right or wrong answers. I just wanted to see how others see the Arcos and their perspectives. Thank you.

What makes Arco unique is that it has so many different patterns, depending not only on the angle the rod was cut, but also on the exact level within any single layer where the cut was made, which reveals ever changing and unrepeatable facets of the material and its internal structure.

You, sir, are an artist with your pens and camera.
