I am delighted with the Aurora 88. The black resin version with gold plated cap is extremely elegant and comfortable. The 14k nib with its ebonite feed delivers a remarkably consistent flow. Just don't expect the medium nib to be a medium...it is far closer to a fine or extra fine but I love it none the less. Being able to unscrew to nib unit is useful. Cleaning the pen a little bit laborious but overall a wonderful pen and instantly a favourite in my accumulation. One to cherish.
