  1. With the recent Stipula Etruria thread that was posted in this sub, I thought it was high time we had a dedicated photo thread for the Montegrappa Extra. This can include the earlier Classica and Historia models, along with the more modern variants including the Extra, Extra 1930 and Extra Otto. The key here is to share what you have no matter the size of your collections or your photography skills, so that we may appreciate, discuss and enjoy the variety of trims, nibs and colours these exquisite pens are available in. My hope is that this will breathe a little more passion into this model
  2. Currently there are many excellent pens being made in Italy and modern Italian pens have captured my heart. I have been a fan of the beautiful Aurora pens for some time and lately the uniquely special offerings from Scrittura Bolognese have enthused me even more. I have a few Leonardos and even two (!) of the very first Radius 1934 pens. I have been delighted with them all because of their beauty, the quality of the nibs and overall manufacture, and most of all the pleasure of writing with them. I didn’t have a Montegrappa, however. Today I set that right and it is truly extraordinary and, I h

  4. At the beginning of this year, I was fortunate to find a Montegrappa classic fountain pen, in the beautiful charcoal celluloid, at a price so good that I could not pass it. I have always been intrigued by the Classica, as the founder parent of an entire lineage in the Montegrappa production, which includes some of the pens that I most appreciate from the maison of Bassano del Grappa. I will discuss this more in detail in the last part of this thread, but meanwhile let me present you my Classica and a work I made with her. The three color versions of the original Classica are in m
  5. Hi FPN, I have been lurking for quite a while but this is my first post on here. I currently own a TWSBI 580 and a Lamy Safari, both in extra-fine, I have been considering purchasing either an Edison collier or a Pelikan m400 pen. I like my nibs to draw quite thin lines having come from Uni-ball pens, and I do not have access to a local store that sells Pelikan pens, I was wondering if someone could provide writing samples for a Pelikan extra-fine nib so I can try to assess the line-width. Thank you for your time, ~Chris

    Extra Fine Nib

    Help ! So many different brands and models. Where do I start My Extra Fine Wing Sung 3003 has developed some intermittent feed issues. Have given it a though clean a couple of times without any success. Halfway through a drawing is not the time to be coping with a drying out or extra wet inkflow. Rather than fussing too much over a 99penny pen I am thinking about a more reliable pen Reading through a few of the threads I am thinking a Chinese or Japanese nib for line fineness. Simple eye dropper or cartridge would be perfect as I always fill with syringe. If there is a pen with finer
  8. Hi guys, I recently purchased unused Omas Extra 630 via Ebay. I originally did not examine the photos extra carefully, but now that the pen is on my way via mail and couldn't wait to see the pen physically, I went back and checked the photos. I realized that the logo "Omas" is not placed at the center of the nib, and the spacing between the letters seem to be too far away. My common sense tells me that who would make a replica of this beginner's pen, but was wondering if I could get your opinions... I think the seller purchased this pen somewhere and I don't think he is intending to se
  9. Hi, I have a vintage Omas extra in grey celluloid a beauty in my opinion. It uses a cork with the piston mechanism, but the cork is no good anymore is falling apart and is leaking. Can anyone help me with some guides to a) how to disassemble the piston mechanism and how to replace the cork? Much much appreciated https://imgur.com/a/qv09R https://i.imgur.com/ET7vm0U.jpg https://i.imgur.com/aukO6BS.jpg
  10. Really contemplating on purchasing a Pilot/Namiki Falcon. Never owned a gold nib before and was wondering if you guys could help me out in selecting the right nib size. So long story short, the very first fountain pen I purchased was a Pilot DPN-70 Desk pen (almost similar to the platinum carbon desk pen). I really adore the line it lays down but it tends to be a little scratchy (i eventually smoothened it with mylar and it writes like a dream, but writes with a thicker and wetter line). I will be buying a namiki falcon but I have absolutely no idea as to which nib size I should buy, should I
  11. I purchased this used on a whim. (hopefully that whim wasn't ill-founded) Can anyone tell me if it appears to truly be an Omas? The nib pic isn't very good but it's two tone, rose gold, marked 585 with the stylized angular "omas" above it. The markings on the pen body say only Omas Extra, beneath which says Made in Italy. There is one greek key band on the cap and the clip is plain. My question is two-fold - is it real? And... the plunger end is quite difficult to screw in and out, and the cap doesn't screw on easily either. How can I clean this pen thoroughly? I have filled and e
  12. My local pen shop will no longer be carrying Omas, and some time ago I picked up a Dama (Review Link HERE) at a closeout price. Like a big dummy, I went back in that shop and straight to the closeout case... and couldn't resist an Extra (or Ogiva, or Ogiva Extra, or Extra Ogiva...? Man Omas' model names confuse me). Appearance and Design: Classic black lines using resin with gold trim common to many pens, the thing that distinguishes Omas is their use of a Roman pattern in the trim. This pen also uses the roller clip common to several Omas models. Construction and Quality: My Dama exp
  13. How has your nib prefer eve changed over the years? I used to buy fine and extra fine nibs exclusively until about seven years ago, when I started getting into broad and upwards. Now, my standard nib is is almost always going to be a stub or cursive italic, and wouldn't bother with anything smaller. I think larger nibs can be more demanding to use, but also help in maintaining a clear hand. Any thoughts?

    Edison Ef Nibs

    I finally have the funds to purchase the ever so lovely Edison beaumont. I have been wondering though how the extra fine nib is. If anyone can tell me their experience with the edison EF nibs (scratchiness, wetness, etc.) it would be very appreciated. Thanks, ~Phil
