It is hard to imagine how important a solid design is for an everyday object like a pen until you experience the reissue of an award-winning design like the Aurora 88 Chrome Series Large Fountain Pen, Black with Nikargenta Trim and Medium Nib. This is the iconic pen of the brash and self-assured 1950s, the brainchild of designer Marcelo Nizzoli, an Italian who had the vision to develop modern die casting techniques that are still in use today. His combination of honor toward tradition and fearless strides toward evolving technology resulted in a pen that became a cult favorite, and has now been returned to production to great acclaim. This pen is equipped with a piston filling mechanism and has a large ink capacity, so that the writing can go on and on. Featuring a medium width nib, the pen is a good choice for someone learning how to write with a fountain pen, with an over sized profile that is easy to grip and the basic stylus to experiment with as the rookie becomes the expert. Long time fountain pen writers will enjoy this pen as well, and its classic good looks will tempt you to display it on your desk at all times, ready to take a memo.
Until you study the history of the simple pen, it seems as though very little thought goes into the design and production of this tool of daily living. Nothing could be further from the truth, particularly with a company like Aurora, the pen artisans from Torino, Italy. Careful design and respect for tradition underlie every Aurora pen, stretching back to the first pen made by a textile magnate in 1919. Respect for tradition is partnered with forward thinking and innovation in every Aurora product, and we offer a selection of Aurora pens and inks to our sophisticated customers knowing this combination will lead you to exactly the writing instrument you have been seeking.
Features: medium width 14k rhodium-treated gold nib; piston filling mechanism. 5-Year Aurora Limited Warranty.
