This beauty arrived today! Ive not been tempted by any others in the cocktail series, but I had wanted one of Sailors translucent Walnut coloured pens. This has (I think) the same colour body and section and finial as the Walnut, but with a rich creamy beige solid-coloured cap - and is half the price. Its quite difficult to judge the cap colour from photos, but in life its exactly like cream on a coffee - I think theyve done a great job with the colours on this pen. Plus they go so well with the rich gold of Sailors nibs - love it. It is a Europe-only exclusive - The Writing Desk in the UK has a good deal on it at the moment.
Hello Everyone, So Before Omas went out of business, I was able to get my hands on a Omas Ogiva Cocktail Lemon Vodka. It was my grail pen at the time and ever since it arrived it has had one problem after another. The piston seal kept leaking and I was forced to replace it myself and that has partially solved the problem (ink still gets behind the seal on occasion). However, the biggest issue happened when the pen leaked from the nib while it was capped. I did not notice it while it was inside my carrying pouch and the ink completely flooded inside the cap. It was probably sitting like that for about a week while I was at school and when I finally did notice what has happened, the ink completely destroyed the inner cap seal (the clear plastic part inside the cap). The inner cap seal was practically eaten away by the ink (MontBlanc corn poppy red) and no longer kept the air from coming in from the hole in the cap where the clip is inserted. Not only did it not hold the air seal, but it was also permanently stained blood red like a crime scene and being a almost completely clear yellow pen it did not look pretty. So after attempting to clean it for days with no success I was forced to remove it. All this happened last July and ever since the pen keeps drying out and I cannot find anyone able to a fix it or sell a replacement part. I have checked all over the web with Mr. Mottishaw of Nibs.com, Tom Weserich of penboard.de and of course ebay with no success. The pen is basically unusable and I don’t know what to do. I cannot insert the part back because it shriveled up and no longer creates an air tight seal and does not fit back into the pen. If anyone has any extra seals they are willing to part with or sell or just any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. I attached an image of the part that I'm looking for here if anyone is confused about what I'm talking about. Thank You, Alex
Hi, I've got a Vodka Yellow version of this pen and had it filled with PR Shoreline Gold, which has left an orange ring near the piston. Flushing repeatedly has got rid of most of it, but would J. Herbin's pen flush be safe to use to get rid of the last traces? Yes, I could live with it, but it would be nicer not to have to
I see posts about OMAS Ogiva ink flow sometimes skipping, but none that mention inconsistent flow in the other direction, sooooo.... The pen is new to me---Brian Anderson listed it for sale through the store at a discount, since it had been previously inked. The first few hours, it wrote beautifully, but now it's kind of blurping/spitting too much ink at random times. This isn't a case of normal shading, where additional ink sits at the bottom of downstrokes; instead, too much ink is expelled randomly, often to a degree that saturates the paper or fills in looped letters (lower case e, for example). At first, I assumed a small thread was caught in the tines, but upon closer inspection with a 30x loupe, nothing can be seen. Is this normal for OMAS...a known problem when pairing OMAS and Noodler's ink? Would love to hear what others have to say, since I truly adore the pen otherwise.
