Throwback Thursday: Quick Look at Omas Ogiva Alba + Omas Blue

For a change of pace, this week's Throwback is a look at a pen and ink combination from August. Since Omas is no longer around, I guess this is the ultimate in Throwback.

Handwritten Review

Pen: Omas Ogiva Alba EF Extra Flessibile
Ink: Omas Blue
Paper: Rhodia No. 16 Grid

Omas Blue has been a real delight for me. It's really intense and saturated. Juicy ink...very well lubricated. And a delight to use with this Omas pen. So much so I've been trying to hunt down more of this stuff. It kind of reminds me of Akkerman Shocking Blue,

Flex is fun! It holds up to some flexing. No railroading. Juicy & wet. Keeps the feed wet. It does not feather. But with ink this wet, it ghosts. Bits of bleeding on Rhodia but minimal. Love this ink. Smooth.

Closing Comments
I really love this ink. It's a shame I only had a sample vial and I had not tried it for the longest time. I assumed it was a bland pen factory blue. So, it was really a surprise to see that it's such a vibrant, electric blue.
