The pen is made of 12-sided faceted black-gold semi-transparent celluloid, which is characterized by an attractive interplay of black, amber and gold colours in a streaked pattern. The pen is in pristine condition. Piston filler, operated by the blind cap knob at the bottom end of the barrel.Cap closure is simple screw-on system. Length closed is around 14.2cm, length open is around 12.8cm, width at widest point on cap (excluding the clip) is 1.45cm, and weight empty is around 20 grams. Supplied in its original Limited Edition box, with ink bottle, and product booklet. One of OMAS's most loved pens, and very much a reflection of the DNA of that company while it existed. The Extra Lucens model very much contributed to the fame of the company, since its introduction in circa 1936. Pens made in this celluloid material have become highly sought after following the demise of OMAS in late 2015. Thank you for your cooperation in making my service efficient and relatively free of risk.
While we will make every endeavour to dispatch this item in a timely fashion, delays with couriers/postal agencies, as well as import authorities eg. An important note regarding the nib and writing performance of this fountain pen. A fountain pen nib can be a joy to write with, provided it has been tuned properly.
Unfortunately factory settings are not optimal for some fountain pens that are new "out of the box", and occasionally tuning is required. It may need some tuning. Then I will wash the nib unit and dry it. In this way I can be sure the pen will write correctly........ BUT sometimes there some residual water/ink will find its way down the feeder during courier air travel.The item "OMAS Extra Lucens Black-Gold Limited Edition Fountain pen Medium 18kt nib MIB" is in sale since Saturday, July 14, 2018.
