    Very cool design--not sure how I feel about the...playful...nib, but maybe it would look better in person.
    I do wonder what is on the end of the clip. (enamel?)

    Perhaps just an angled facet?

    I must admit I am taken with these, and considering pre-ordering one (for dispatch end of November).

    I do hope it's just a facet on the end of the clip. I wondered about the nib too, but then I thought about how often I actually read the nib on any of my pens (not often . . .)

    Had a decent play with (though no writing) the two tester pens today at the London Pen show and also had a decent chat with Luca from SCRIBO. Will hopefully do a write up on it including photos. I do like it, and while it has the OMAS specified Bock nibs (so same as OMAS were using) and has facets, it's a SCRIBO pen, not an OMAS.

    OK, finally got round to doing my write up and adding pictures. It ended up some what wordy so I've converted my travel blog (on Wordpress) to being a general blog with categories.

    I find the pen visually appealing, but agree about the elephant in the room being price. 650 Euros today is USD $750. One can find original 1990's Omas resin Paragons (I believe with in-house nibs) for much less, and even many of the celluloid Paragons can be found in that price or even for less.

    I'll look forward to seeing them in person, and I wish the new company well, but doubt one will end up in my personal pen case.

    The video I mentioned (maybe in another thread) is now on line - it is Luca and myself talking about the Feel, with the video taken (and some back ground questions and comments) by Penultimate Dave (née Visconti Dave). You'll note I do bring up the question of cost towards the end.

    Video is on YouTube

    It's been a long time coming, but I bought one which arrived mid January and having now used it for four weeks I've written my review:

    Very nice review. It is good to see that Scribo is increasingly being looked upon as a Company with a lot of Omas in its DNA as opposed to the "second coming" of the House of Omas.
    This is a Company with lots of potential and huge talent. Chances are it will create its own niche. A niche which may well have some Omas elements to it but it will not be the Omas clone that some were hoping would arrive.
    Make no mistake, Scribo is not Omas and those communications which early on suggested it would be did both the Company and Omas afficionados all a disservice.

    I really enjoyed reading the reviews but personally I'm not keen on the shape and the step down section, so my money stays in my purse.
