New Armando Simoni Club Brown Arco (Banded Armadillo Version)
jmccarty3 posted a topic in Italy - EuropeThose who have seen the most recent Pen World surely must have noticed the forthcoming Armando Simoni Club Brown Arco pen, which is supposed to be introduced at the DC show (if it occurs): http://i.imgur.com/OXEIWFo.jpg The pen is said to be made from remaining OMAS brown Arco celluloid stock. It shares many characteristics of the Wahl-Eversharp Decoband pen, including the pneumatic filling system and the flexible nib. This is not surprising, since both Syd Saperstein and Manu Caltagirone have been involved in the resurrection of Wahl-Eversharp and OMAS (now ASC). What I immediately noticed about all the photos of the new brown Arco pen is the abundant transverse banding in the celluloid, which I don't find very attractive. To my knowledge, this banding is not seen in any of the OMAS Arco pens. I would like to know how this came about, and what other Arco lovers think of it.
Omas, Visconti, And Lamy Pen Weights.
sub_bluesy posted a topic in Fountain & Dip Pens - First StopI found a kitchen scale laying around the house tonight so I weighed some inked pens for fun. The silver vermeil section on the brown arco really seems to add some weight!
