Take the opportunity to return to a time when a pen was a treasured possession, not a cheap disposable, with the Aurora 88 Gold Series Large Fountain Pen, Black Resin with 14k Gold Medium Nib. Houses and buildings have architects, paintings and sculptures have artists and this memorable pen has a designer so famous that pen fanciers know him by name. Marcelo Nizzoli actually had a famous building or two under his belt, and designed popular items like handbags, shawls and posters in the mid-20th century. He is perhaps best known for an Olivetti typewriter design in the 1950s, and continued the writing motif by designing the inspiration for the Aurora 88. The pen of a master, it was originally made in the 50s, and is now redesigned for today. Sleek yet substantial, this is a pen for a real man, with a shape and character that cannot be denied. Start by examining the intricately etched and swirled steel nib, a medium width that allows for precise writing with a little pizazz. The durable black resin assures you that it will be writing with you for a lifetime, and the gold trim further ensures that will be a lifetime of elegance and style. A complete retro package, it has been updated for a new century.
This pen uses a piston filling mechanism which is a rarity these days, but much sought after by those who truly appreciate a smoothly operating fountain pen. A piston filling mechanism is more reliable and holds much more ink, making this task both easier to do and less frequently required. The manufacturing of this system is more difficult than others but is worth implementing and worth seeking for a pen aficionado.
We pride ourselves on finding the perfect men's accessories for our sophisticated customers. When we added fine writing instruments to our online male specialty store, we were so very pleased to discover the Aurora pens and inks were now available outside of their native Italy. Decades of pride and handcrafting have made Auroras highly sought after, so now that you can easily find an Aurora for your daily writing companion, do not forget to look at the inks and cartridges that are also available on our site. Aurora supplies are considered by pen enthusiasts to be some of the best in the world, and you deserve that kind of quality.
