*The box of cartridges shown here is not available ( takes international cartridges )
* Early model, the nib section has a metal ring
Osmiroid's new design with improved ink flow was introduced around 1980. I have seen this design called “the Pilot”, The Sonic and “the Easy Change” . This model doesn't use the screw in nib unit common to the models 65 and 75 but has a new complete front end combining the nib' the section and the feed into a single replaceable unit. The actual nibs are identical to the nibs used in the original nib assemblies but are available in a wider range of nib sizes aimed at the calligraphy market. These pens are all cartridge pens although the sets often come with a “Squeezefill converter”.The humble Osmiroid has a much longer ancestry than most fountain pens. It was made by EH Perry in the factory at Gosport. The company had been founded in 1918 by Edmund Perry, grandson of James Perry, a major figure in the development of practical steel nibs. ... Quality of the nibs was very high.
