Omas Extra Brevette 555 – Super Flex / Wet Noodle (Near Mint)

Omas Extra Brevette 555 – Super Flex / Wet Noodle (Near Mint) (See Price Here)

Here is a beautiful ladies size Omas Extra 555. It’s similar in shape to the Ogiva but smaller. The pen is in great condition with very little signs of use. The cap has no brassing or scrapes. The imprint still has the original paint in it. The black celluloid body is also glossy and nearly flawless. The original piston is smooth and draws up ink well. This 14kt. Omas Extra nib is amazing. It writes normally has an XXF (0.2mm) that is pretty smooth. A tiny bit of pressure and you can get a wetter and broader line if you wish. The flex on this nib is beautiful. It is ultra responsive and flex comes with ease. The range of flex is great going up to BBBB (1.9mm). It’s not quite a wet noodle in ease of flex, but all it’s other qualities are superior wet noodle qualities. If you are looking to do some nice precise flex work, such as calligraphy, this is a great pen. And if you just want a superb vintage Omas, then this is just about as good as it gets.
