OMAS was founded in Bologna, Italy in 1925 by Armando Simoni. OMAS is one of the most famed and respected pen companies in the world. Each of their pens is handcrafted to perfection in the same workshop in Italy from which the company was founded. The process of creating an OMAS pen involves a myriad of different stages, levels, and processes that must be done to exact specifications. There are over 100 stages involved in the refinement process alone. From the initial cutting of the 18-carat gold leaf to the rolling, trimming, and final shaping, every stage contributes to the extraordinary flexibility of OMAS nibs. The OMAS fountain pen embodies all the passion and expertise a skilled pen craftsman can put into their work. Armando Simoni was often quoted to say, “A pen must make writing pleasurable.” If this is true, then there is no other company in the world that has worked harder to prove it than OMAS. In their entire manufacturing process, they only use the most capable and exceptional quality, craftsmanship and materials to make their pens. From the skilled hands of a craftsman to the eager hands of a writer, OMAS pens are the epitome of traditional finesse and sophistication. Pen Boutique is an AUTHORIZED DEALER of OMAS pens.
