Omas Extra (Oversized) – Super Flex

Omas Extra (Oversized) – Super Flex  (See Price Here)

Here is a vintage piston-filled Omas Extra. It’s 146mm long capped, or about 5 3/4”, and the barrel diameter is over 13mm. It is almost identical in size and style to the modern Omas Ogiva. The black celluloid looks great with only very minor surface scratches from normal use. I have replaced the piston seal which was no longer working, and it holds a lot of ink. The gold-filled trim is in great condition. The 14kt. Omas nib is really lovely. It is somehow a beautifully smooth XXF (0.2mm) with just a hind of feedback, which would be expected of so fine a nib. The flex comes pretty easy and has some nice range going up to BB (1.6mm), which is much larger than you will likely need to use as the super fine nature of the nib combines wonderfully with a sharp snap back that makes this a very responsive and crispy flex writer. This is the pen that the modern Omas’ want to be.
