Unboxing an Omas 360 Vintage Limited Edition Fountain Pen

A friend lent me his mint, uninked Omas 360 LE Vintage pen... and told me I could ink it with whatever I wanted. It was nerve-wracking because it is a WHITE pen. I love this pen and don't want to give it back.

OVERALL

I have personally visited Phidon Pens and it's always so fun. I love brick and mortar stores and Mano and Baldeep are so kind and welcoming! It's a pleasure to spread the word about their 10th Anniversary ink - celebrating ten years of their store. I am a fan of Diamine inks, this is a lovely color - a touch on the dark side for what I typically use, but for a folded nib, it's perfect - and it's well-behaved.


I received this item free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
