Normally right handers rotate to the left.....there are rare 1950-60's obliques that rotate to the left.
IMO the only oblique (unless a left handed over writer) worth having is the German '50-70 semi-flex stubbed ones. Anything else is too stiff to give a decent line variation.
I've had the rest....... ...we are missing the kicking boot smilie....the big kicking boot one.
In you might have to have it re-corked...OFC probably not .....the price of Osmia is at a decade low...They can be gotten for @E60 if you don't Idiot buy.
An Osmia/Osmia-Faber-Castel would be easiest to find with a right oblique....semi-flex if the nib has a small diamond....often with the number size of nib in it.....or the maxi-semi-flex with the large diamond, often with Supra, sometimes just Supra.....are maxi-semi-flex. The grand gold nib is as good as the great steel nib.
Osmia is the only pen company I know of that tells you if it is a left (L such as BL) or right oblique (R.- BR) Like I have two BBL obliques. I could have gotten an ?R but had no need for for a right oblique.
This is a regular maxi-semi-flex, Supra nib. (gold)
Neither picture is mine....I have a similar but slightly larger pen, but use this picture to show a semi-flex Osmia nib. This picture shows a gold plated Osmia nib. I have them in steel and gold; both are great....so if you go looking; don't be a dumb gold snob....like I was.. I have some 7 Osmia/OFC pens is steel and gold, had I not been a dumb Gold snob, I'd have three or four more.....
The nibs were made by Degussa since 1932 when the gold and silver producer took over Osmia's nib factory for debt.Continuing to make the great Osmia nibs for Osmi and others as normal in those days, Osmia made for others MB did also.
... Unlike Soennecken, MB, Pelikan and later Geha, Osmia didn't have a office supply company to hold them over water. Osmia was one of the top German pens.
The pen below comes from 1952. Faber Castel hadn't started erasing Osmia from the pen.
In German Ebay.....stay away from the Buy Now Idiot button....you can pay the same high price in the states..........the Cartel has started putting the pens they offer in the Buy Now Idiot section for a start bid of 10 Euros less than Idiot searching.....to drive up the price so folks will save time by spending too much money.
First the regular 'civilian' seller has to take Pay Pal (we use bank wire transfer in the EU, where it is as cheap as checks........Bank Wire from the States costs $35), many won't, and he has to ship outside of Germany.....many won't. Paranoia about the worlds second class, thieving postal services.
