    Omas Ogiva Cap Repair

    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 tha
  3. Are these two pens among of the many versions of the Ogiva? The only barrel imprint is these three words in a row: "Omas Extra Italy." I'm not at all well informed about Omas pens, but I was guessing the 1980's, give or take, and that these are pretty low end, as far as Omas pens go. Anyone know anything about them, like what the material is, or what they might be worth paying for nowadays to use as knock around (to and from the office) writers? Some of you are bound to know, but I'd appreciate even a somewhat informed guess.

    Gold Italic

    I recently bought this Omas ogiva - beautiful pen. It seems that the nib was customised to write as and italic from the original nib marking (medium). The customisation looks like it was made by grinding or clipping the top of the nib off including the tipping which means that when I use this to write I will be writing directly with the gold part onto the surface of the paper. Given how soft these nibs are, I am not quite comfortable with that. So before I go spending 100s of Euros/Pounds on getting this one retipped and reground to an italic or cursive italic does anyone have any thoughts?
  5. 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
  6. I recently found an OMAS Ogiva Alba on Ebay for a pretty good price, and considering the rumors that OMAS was closing its doors, I decided to get this beautiful pen. I made a video review of the Alba that you can watch here: https://youtu.be/Qb4Z_A2cDC8 Packaging OMAS does a very good job with their packaging. This is the first thing that the customer interacts with, and I'm convinced that impressive packaging makes a strong first impression. That is certainly the case with this pen. The pen comes in a large, heavy coffin-style box. Pulling off the top of the box reveals the pen in a suede p
  7. So earlier this week I was finally able to purchase on of my personal Grail Pens...The Omas Ogiva Alba in Violet. Ever since I saw it on Goulet Pens I wanted this pen, especially since purple is my favorite color. I wasn't able to purchase it at the time. A couple of months pass and on a casual search I find that it's sold out almost everywhere and I was disheartened. I then found it on ebay from Tay from Pensinasia. I wasn't able to fully pay for it at the time and he graciously let me put down some money to hold the pen for me! A couple of weeks later, I managed to get the funds to fully pay
  8. Hi guys, I've recently received a delightful OMAS Ogvia Alba with an 18k fine nib. Really enjoying it - a smooth wet writer without no significant feedback. Just what I had wanted. I have noticed however that the feed looks misaligned. However, I have no problems with ink delivery - it's wet with inks like Pelikan 4001 and of course it's nice with the more lubricated Iroshizuku and Edelstein inks. The pen write's smoothly on a range of papers from cheap copy to tomoe river and rhodia. Does this occur frequently - ie the looks funny but works perfectly conundrum? Is it a problem I should
  9. INTRODUCTION: The Omas Ogiva Vision Turquoise LE is my fifth Omas pen - a collaboration between local retailer Fook Hing Trading Co and Italian manufacturer Omas SRL. This installation of the Ogiva is exceptionally special because the pen is one in a limited edition of no more than 20 pieces. The new Omas Ogiva Vision Turquoise is only available locally and I consider myself fortunate to be able to own one of these beautiful specimens. The Ogiva Vision demonstrator was also available in another limited edition of Blue (with rose gold trims) and Green (with High Tech rhodium trims). The pens
  10. 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
