I've RE-POSTED this as I left out the nib & filling mechanism info, but my "edit" button has already disappeared...so, here it is again w/the added info (better continuity!):

Saturday Greetings from DocNib's PenEmporium! The Pen Gods were smiling onme the other day when I came across a "Mint in Box" (MIB) Omas Limited Edition...the TRIRATNA Sterling Silver FP, #756/2541, complete with inner & outer box, papers, matching suede slip-case and a boxed bottle of matching ink!

This big & beautiful Sterling Silver over Saffron resin FP weighs 2.7 ounces and was produced using three "Old World" techniques: Lost Wax, Haut-Bas Relief and Filigree. Cap & barrel overlays are .925 Sterling Silver, the barrel underneath is Omas's popular vegetal (cotton-based) resin in Saffron, which is the color of the Buddhist's monks robes and the Sterling Silver clip is adorned with 3-genuine Rubies. The name "Triratna" stands for "Three Gems" which is the Buddhist Trinity...Buddha, the teacher of universal compassion...Dharma, his teachings...and Sangha, the community of Buddhist followers.

The cap, barrel, piston knob & nib portray the most symbolic references in the history of Buddha (in the relief) and the edition number of 2541 acknowledges the anniversary of his death in 1997, the year this pen was produced (total of 563 18K Gold versions were produced symbolizing the birth date of Buddha 2500 years ago!). Also included with this beautiful pen is a special Saffron (Bt.Orange) colored ink in Omas's trademark design bottle & has never been opened or used.

 

The nib is a 2-tone 18K "Fine" point and the filling system is a piston-filler (like most Omas pens) and has never been filled with ink...SWEET!

 

This pen was purchased sometime in 1998 and stored away in a safety deposit box, only being opened up once in a while to gaze upon, so shop-wear is at a bare minimum & overall condition is "Mint"/Unused. According to the previous owner, it was only polished once with a soft cotton cloth after he got it & then left to age gracefully while resting in it's Saffron-colored suede slip case...doesn't get much better than this!

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..
    • A Smug Dill
      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
