Pen Description

From the Italian company Omas: 1925 to 2015. This is the Omas Jerusalem 3000 which was launched as a Special Edition fountain pen in 1996. Many will be familiar with this pen's "big sister", the Omas Jerusalem 3000 silver limited Edition, launched a few months earlier. Both commemorate the 3000th anniversary of Jerusalem's establishment as a city, which is considered one of the oldest in the world.
 
The pen barrel and cap are manufactured from lightweight but extremely durable black cotton resin. With a capped length of 5.5/8 inches (14.3 cm) and cap diameter of 0.6 inches (15.1 mm), the pen only weighs 21.8 grams. The pen has a twist action piston filling mechanism, actuated by a knob at the rear of the barrel. The almost flat topped screw-on cap has a gold filled pocket clip with the Star of David delicately engraved on its lower end. The gold filled cap band depicts the city walls of Jerusalem and is engraved 'JERUSALEM' and '3000' around circumference. Along the side of the barrel the inscription 'OMAS EXTRA'

Hepworth Comment
 
We are not sure how many of these Special Edition Omas Jerusalem 3000 fountain pens were produced, it appears to be very rare. The condition of this pen would make it a highly desirable collectors piece. Having serviced the pen and write tested it, I can attest to the the nib performance, which would also make this pen an excellent everyday writer.
