Beautiful but not ostentatious, the Aurora Optima Fountain Pen, Black Resin with Chrome Trim and Medium Nib embodies subtle elegance. Both the barrel and the cap of the pen are made of black resin based on a classical design, though the cap is trimmed with chrome to lend it a modernistic air. Despite their fine appearance, Optima pens are also famous for being both reliable and practical. Each pen is fitted to the user's hand, meaning that prolonged usage will not bring about cramps and other signs of discomfort. Furthermore, the piston filling mechanism contained in each Optima pen ensures that it can keep up with its user's needs. Although harder to manufacture and thus rarer than competing designs, piston filling mechanisms can hold more ink and are less prone to breaking down. This pen also contains a second ink reservoir that can prolong its usefulness. Switching over to this second reservoir is as simple as turning the pen's end in a counter-clockwise direction. Optima pens can use a range of nibs, though this particular pen comes attached to a medium-sized nib made of 14K gold. Medium-sized nibs are superior to finer nibs in that their points are not sharp enough to sink into the paper. Individuals who prefer broader lines upon the paper should also choose medium-sized nibs over their finer counterparts.
