Omas Extra Brevetto 556/S – Wet Noodle (SOLD)

Omas 556/S Brevetto – Wet Noodle (See Price Here)

Here is a first rate Omas pen from the 1950s. It’s the 556/S Brevetto. A full size pen in high quality black celluloid and gold-filled trim. These pens are light and beautifully balanced with top notch trim packages and some of the best nibs ever made. This pen is in very nice condition. The gold-filled trim looks great with no brassing. The body is also in nice condition. Shiny with even minimal surface scratching from use. There is one very small scuff on the barrel near the cap that I like came from someone using a buffer on it. It’s very hard to see and doesn’t show up in photos. Imprints look good. Maybe slightly worn but still very readable. The 14kt. (585) Omas “Extra Lucens” nib is a wonder. Normal writing is XXF (0.2mm) that is surprisingly smooth for such a fine nib. The nib is also a fabulous wet noodle with an astonishing range going from 0.2mm to 1.9mm (BBB++)!! Responsiveness or snap back is also superb. This is a first rate Omas with a first rate and ultra desirable XXF wet noodle. This won’t last long.
