About This Product
Made in France between 1945 and 1960, the Gilbert & Blanzy-Poure #2082 Omicron is a flexible, medium-width dip pen suitable for copperplate, Spencerian, and many styles of modern calligraphy. Unusual in both shape and size, the Omicron features long, complex cutouts on each side—this allows the nib to be more flexible without using thinner metal.
The #2082 Omicron is narrower than a standard nib, so it will not work in pen holders with a fixed channel. Instead, use a European-style pen holder with a metal clasp for nonstandard pens like this one.
Thanks to the protective coating applied to all dip pens (even new ones produced today), these pens are in excellent vintage condition. They've been checked for rust and other defects by our experts and are ready to return to service on your desk.
As with any dip pen, you will need to remove the protective coating so that ink will stick to the nib consistently. To remove the coating, simply dip your new pen in ink a couple of times and wipe it off. Repeat until the ink coats the nib completely and doesn't bead up. This process takes about 15 seconds and only needs to be done once, before you use the pen for the first time.
Sold individually. Appearance may vary slightly since this is a vintage item. Limited stock.
