I finally found some time to take picutres of my pen. [...]
For what it is worth, I find your pen on par, as to the Arco pattern and general finish, with many of the pens produced by Omas, and better than several samples I saw. A truly beautiful pen you own.
I also like the Gladiatore mezzo, which has a more usable size than the original Gladiatore, in my opinion. Congratulations!
I do not want to enter into the discussion about ASC merits and faults, and I do not own any of their pens, so please take my observation just for what it is, a simple note. Your complimentary brown leather case embossed with OMAS genuine leather made in Italy is very likely a true OMAS product (probably part of the new old stock that was acquired when OMAS got out of business), not an a attempt by ASC to deceive their clients using the OMAS name. I have most probably the same pouch in brown leather, and mine came from OMAS.
