First introduced in the '50s, the continuing appeal of the Aurora 88 Gold Series Small Fountain Pen, Black Resin with 14K Solid Gold Medium Nib is a testament to the brand's timeless elegance. Each pen bears the Aurora logo on the gold-plated ring encircling the cap, which serves to highlight the black resin of the barrel. Despite the elegance that these elements lend to their design, pens belonging to the Aurora 88 product line have not compromised on their more practical elements. In fact, these pens last longer than their counterparts found in other Aurora product lines because their internal reservoirs are able to store more ink. Both cartridges and converters can be used to refill these pens once their reservoirs have been exhausted so as to extend their usefulness. Furthermore, pens belonging to the Aurora 88 product line are tapered so that prolonged use places less strain on the hand. This concern for practicalities extends even to the pens' medium-sized nibs. Although not so smooth as fine nibs, medium-sized nibs do not catch on the paper while producing clear and legible lines upon the paper. Overall, these pens are best suited to individuals with tighter and more rigid control.
A textile merchant founded Aurora in 1919 to bring the first Italian fountain pen into production. He brought together elegant design, superior craftsmanship, high-end materials, and the latest manufacturing techniques to create fountains pens of distinguished appearance and superb quality. Although Aurora has renowned for its refinement since almost the beginning, it has continued to keep apace with the changing times so as to provide its customers with the finest writing instruments possible. Aurora has since found international success through catering to these precise principles. Even though customers in the European countries still make up the bulk of its clientele, Aurora has made serious inroads into both the Americas and Asia.
Features: medium width 14k solid gold nib. Accepts cartridge or converter refills. 5-Year Aurora Limited Warranty.
