There's lots of Internet chatter these days about the demise of Omas. I, for one, am sad to see this venerable pen maker go under. I was introduced to Omas thanks to Brian Goulet's wonderfully in-depth videos when the Goulet Pen Company started carrying Omas. I was also extremely curious about the 'Extra Flessibile' nib so that's what I got.
Pen: Omas Ogiva Alba EF Extra Flessibile
Ink: Pelikan Mandarin
Paper: Rhodia No. 16 Grid
Woah! Just got the Omas Ogiva Alba and I had to try this Pelikan Mandarin ink with it. Love the shading. But it ran dry quite quickly and took a long time to run again. So maybe this ink is not the best for flex pen but it is quite a beauty.
Try some flexing.
Love this nib. It's pretty smooth. Lovely.
Ink is well behaved. Wet or dry? Wet. Runs like oil. Great!
Having used this pen for some time now I definitely have a lot more to say about this pen than those few handwritten comments. I'm working on an longer in-depth review so I'll save those comments for another day.
