COMMENTS: Delta (the Collosseum) was the first modern high quality fountain pen I owned, purchased back in 1998. Always have had a soft spot for that label. As with Omas, it appears that Delta recently closed. Time will tell if the name pulls a Phoenix and rises from the ashes.   Tech and Web is part of the Journal cluster. This is a fat pen, offering variegated yellow, orange and black that somewhat channels vintage pens such as the Conklin "Halloween" from the late 1920s.


Omas 360. Piston fill. 1st Generation
CLICK FOR LARGER PIC

1st Generation piston-fill 360s. The series owes something to the 1920s Triad fountain pen. Yellow and the "Cranberry" red apparently are somewhat "tougher" colors.  Among the four only the black pen shows modest signs of regular use.
