Barrel and cap have a high gloss sheen. Piston filling system slides with ease and draws up maximum ink volume. Cap to barrel screw is firm and positive. Lower cap band ring is slightly loose in its location groove, but does not rotate. Overall pen is ready to write and is in excellent condition. Pen comes with original Omas black velvet covered case and white outer box, with papers.
Produced when OMAS were arguably in their prime, the Ogiva Extra is a very fine piston filler, offering a lovely springy and responsive fine nib, and a very comfortable feel in the hand. It is the classic cigar or torpedo shape, a full sized fountain pen with a girth akin to the MontBlanc 146 Le Grand. It is piston filled, with a large ink capacity.
