Omas Extra Brevette – Super Flex/Wet Noodle (SOLD)

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

Oh boy. Here is a beautiful vintage Omas Extra Brevette piston filler in black celluloid. There is some light scratching on this pen from normal use but nothing that is deep or obvious. There are two little bumps on either end of the barrel (see pics). I have no idea what caused these. The gold-filled trim looks really nice with no brassing. The piston filler works great. I put a little silicone grease in there. The 14kt Omas “Extra Lucens” (or extra light/ fine) nib is superb. This is really an XXF, which are pretty hard to come by in an Omas of this era. It writes a lovely, smooth line with great flow and feels soft and elegant. If you like really fine nibs, you’ll love this one. Additionally, it has some soft flex with superb responsiveness. The flex only goes up to 1.2mm, but that is all you need with such a fine starting point and great responsive action. Had the swells been a little larger, I would have graded this a “wet noodle.” Still, it feels “dip nibbish” in the quality of writing you are able to do with it. Overall, it’s a fantastic find.
