Hi all, just wanted to hear your views about the Arco supply / demand. I remember few years back when ASC launched their first pen with the arco material. There was a buzz in the community and in their marketing about how there are only a few rods remaining for the Arco material. Fast forward to 2021, I still see a lot of models made in Arco both from ASC brands and also from the likes of Leonardo. My personal view is that the price of any item is what people are willing to pay for it. But I write this post wondering how the overall messaging has been on the supply / availability of this material compared to the actual steady supply of Arco pens since Omas. That said I'm still on the lookout for an Oldwin Arco Verde (not ASC version)! cheers Sidd
Hi all, Just received an email for the new 90th anniversary pens from Oldwin & The Pen Family (ASC & team). See link below for details. Pen comes in rhodium trim and gold trim. I really like the arco verde material but I don't like the ring that breaks the seamless design of Oldwin. I suppose they have done this for a piston filler? Thoughts? Anyone planning to buy one? https://thepenfamily.com/products/oldwintorpedorhodium Cheers, Sidd
I received an email from ASC the other day about progress on the Bologna Extra Arco Verde orders and they mentioned briefly something very interesting. They had stated that the celluloid rods used had been stocked as Arco Verde Speciale by Omas. It looks to me that the silver celluloid layers might be more defined in this batch of material vs the original pens. Maybe a few more layers of translucent silver it appears? Are there any opinions on this or additional information from the resident Omas experts? Seems like a nice Easter egg of Omas history that I would like to know more about if possible. Im EXTREMELY excited about this pen! Ive been trying to pick up an Arco Verde Paragon for years but prices have gone crazy so the ASC pen seems to be my last opportunity to get a pen of Arco Verde without selling my car! I was able to try an ASC Brown Arco with the same magic flex nib at Detlef Bittners shop and was amazed at how smooth it was. Really cant wait for this pen!!
