OMAS was founded in 1925 and is one of the historic Italian fountain brands. Since then, albeit with mixed success, and with several changes of ownership occurred after the death of its founder, it has remained an active force in the fountain pen market. Ownership passed to the French Luis Vuitton company in 2000, and then in October 2007 to the Chinese company Xinyu Hengdeli, in March 2016 it ceased its activities.
The OMAS extra was a stalwart pen for OMAS, the faceted design and classic lines make this pen an everyday classic. Fortunately since OMAS is no longer in operation, the pen was built to accept Schmidt refills, of which one is installed. This pen makes for a lovely everyday companion, smooth to write with, lovely in the hand.
There are no major imperfections to note, no chips splits or engravings.
The gold on the clip is discoloured and worn, and the pen shows evidence of use, but is in overall working good condition.
A Schmidt 8126 Black refill has been installed, and the pen comes ready to write. It writes a medium black line. Schmidt refills are readily available online in blue and black.
