Hepworth Comment

The Omas Milord is virtually identical to the Omas Paragon design of the period, the Milord is 5.0 mm shorter than the Paragon, they are often confused. This model is the piston filling version, far more sort after than the twin cartridge filling variant. Other than it's unique and elegant looks, the Milord is also a very light weight writing instrument, weighing in at 16.6 grams, in comparison to the Montblanc 146 which weighs 29.2 grams.
