    Those are just so lovely. Why did the Italians go the Way of Bling, when they're capable of making such simple, modernist classics as the Omas Tokyo and the original Aurora 88?

    Such lovely orange and green too - what do you call that green? Not bright enough for lime or pistachio and not quite dark enough for olive.

    How long did it take you to get the set?

    The colors are called:

    Persimmon Orange
    Lychee Green
    Viridian Green
    Venetian Blue
    Classic Black




    During more that ten years I was tempted to buy the one and other pen, but I only bought them now, when I got the unique oportunity to buy them all at the same time.

    Started by accident there was a period when it seemed like every other vintage German pen I acquired had an oblique nib.

    According to some retailers, today is national ballpoint pen day, though it doesn't seem to correspond to the date of Biro's patent.

    To mark the occasion, a few accidental acquisitions (parts of sets)

    Kaweco, Omas, Waterman



    and a few deliberate ones.

    I have had a bit of a purple patch recently,

    Purple 1.JPG

    Purple 2.JPG

    Then I realised that the seven pens were made in seven different countries.

    Applied Pens, Wales
    Den's Pens, England
    Tombow, Japan
    Franklin Christoph, USA
    Santini, Italy
    Lamy, Germany
    Garcia Deschacht, Belgium
