Presenting a sober and almost understated image, the Aurora Optima Fountain Pen, Black Resin with Chrome Trim and Fine Nib is nonetheless an elegant instrument that is suited to the hands of all individuals who appreciate something more refined than a cheap, mass-produced ballpoint pen. Encased in a beautiful shell of shining black resin, this product bears the Aurora logo stamped on a chrome band encircling the mouth of its cap. Although it can be refilled once its ink reservoir has been exhausted using much the same method as other fountain pens, this particular pen also has a second, hidden reservoir that can be used once its end is turned counter-clockwise. In contrast to most fountain pens of modern design, pens in the Optima line use piston filling systems. Said systems are more reliable and can hold more ink compared to their substitutes, but have become less common due to the increased difficulties in manufacturing them. As a result, Optima pens can be considered true successors to the fine fountain pens of old. On a concluding note, this particular pen uses a fine nib, meaning that its ink transfers to the page in elegant and almost delicate lines that refuse to blotch.
Founded in the same year as the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, Aurora is emblematic of the ebullience that seized a damaged but nonetheless hopeful Italy. From its earliest beginnings, Aurora demonstrated that it could bring together precious materials, experienced craftsmanship, and the latest technological advances to create beautiful but still usable writing instruments. Since then, the Italian manufacturer has continued to maintain a careful balance between classical elegance and modern innovation. Its meteoric rise in the global market is testament to the success of this approach. Today, Aurora sells its writing instruments to discerning customers based in Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, the Far East, and other far-flung regions.
Features: fine width 14k solid gold nib. Piston filling mechanism. 5-Year Aurora Limited Warranty.
