Aurora Reviews

Vintage Duo-cart
Fantastic little pen. Fits in the shirt pocket just right and is very classy. The cap is very secure (perhaps too secure) so no accidental leaks or drying out.

Aurora's nibs are masterfully crafted to perform and this pen is no exception; it writes with the same beloved quality that Aurora is famous for--very smooth yet with an audible and tactile sensation sometimes unfairly described as feedback. This medium nib is a "true medium" like a Japanese or vintage American pen and similar to what other European companies call a "fine" nib. Some may knock this pen for having a steel nib, but my experience with this pen is that it has performed better out of the box than pens costing two or three times as much.

I am very enthusiastic about this pen and would buy it again, and I will be a return customer to Pen Chalet. Thank you for the experience.

Vintage Duo-cart
I purchased the Vintage Duo-cart with the gold top and the dark red body-medium nib. It arrived very fast, and when I opened the package I was thrilled with it! The pen is beautiful! I love the retro design, and the feel of it is very nice. This is the first Aurora pen I have ever owned--and I intend to buy more of them. The ink cartridges work very well, and I have to state that the ink is very nice. Writing with a pen like this, is a pleasurable experience. Now I just need to work at my handwriting skills! My experience with Pen Chalet has been awesome. Great selection of pens, and the website is very easy to maneuver through! Great transaction overall.

Vintage Duo-cart
The Vintage Duo-Cart by Aurora is definitely a writer's pen. It performs flawlessly every time the nib touches paper, and while it is only offered in one nib size, it seems to be the perfect nib size (something between a western fine and medium) for writing. The pen is reminiscent of the great vintage writers, it's perfectly sized and balanced, even with or because of it's deep posting cap the weight of the pen is perfect. The hooded nib is perfectly tuned and stays wet even during short pauses where other non-hooded nibs may dry out a bit. Most of my favorite writers have gold nibs, but the steel nib on this pen is perfect and could compete with any gold nib for smoothness (though it is definitely rigid). Very happy I secured a Vintage Duo-cart while they were available. I went with the black resin with chrome, but may also pick up a burgundy resin with gold before they sell out.

88 Sole Limited Edition
I have a small fountain pen collection and did not own an Aurora when considering purchasing this pen. I called and asked Ron for his thoughts about the pen and the appropriate nib size for my preferred writing style. Ron's feedback was very helpful and served asthe catalyst for my decision to buy the pen. Since its purchase, I have not stopped writing with it. It is beautiful and writes on various kinds of paper very smoothly. It has lived up to Ron's recommendation and I am very happy with the pen.

Vintage Duo-cart
I love vintage pens and this is a very beautiful vintage-modern pen. the box smell and looks vintage the pen is normal size and light but the cap is heavy.
nib is only medium and is an average medium not too broad like European nibs and definitely not a fine one, its a nice wet nib, it a hard nib no flex. the only thing i don't like is cap, there is no click and it comes off easy

Bottled Ink(45ml)
Upon opening this bottle I found a deeply seated plastic cap inside the neck of the bottle. As I tried to get it out, and finally did after much tugging, pushing and pulling, I was covered in ink. I do like the ink though.

88 Nebulosa Limited Edition
Material has a lovely chatoyance, and purple is honestly one of the best colors for a pen. the material is also ever so slightly translucent when held up to the light. very nice.
The nib writes very well, with great feedback that I love. The piston is very smooth and holds a very nice quantity of ink. Nib is a bit of a nail, so if you want flex, this isn't your pen. Although maybe you can contact Aurora for a flex nib? I'd recommend this pen to anyone who loves their fountain pens.

This Aurora is a very handsome looking writing instrument. Initially, I had writing issues although the pen was brand new. Pen Chalet had arranged with the distributers to have it fixed. It came back writing beautifully. Did not take too long either. Overall, I am very pleased with this pen and it's a joy to write with. I highly recommend this product with its large and elegant design.

Bottled Ink(45ml)
Such a beautiful ink! I tried it out in the L.A. Pen Show when it first came out, and I was instantly taken by this ink! The shading is wonderful, going from light blue/gray to dark blue/black. If using in a wet-enough pen, you can get some sheen to the ink. For such a low price, you can get one of the best inks out in the market. It's a must-have!

Ipsilon Satin Collection
This Aurora Ipsilon is my third new pen since rediscovering "ink". It has followed a TWSBI 580AL and a Pelikan M200 in medium nibs.
Overall, I quite like the pen and its aesthetics, understated yet balanced with the warm glow of rose gold trim offsetting the black satin body. I enjoy the subtle tactile feel of the matte barrel and cap. Perhaps Aurora should have continued this treatment through the grip section as well, as that does seem more "plasticy", yet not slippery. For the price point, I believe it exudes quality. In my mind it is at least the equal of the Pelikan M200, across the board. Under 5x magnification I couldn't find any build quality control issues. The tines seem aligned correctly out of the box as does the centering of feed and nib. The feeds ink channel is almost dead center aligned with the nibs breather hole.
The pen is light in hand yet solid. While being a tad short unposted for my hand (large med./sm large) it is still comfortable to write with, finding that I do so about 50% of the time. It feels great deeply posted as well with its weight slightly aft of center. And all that gushing testimony is spot on concerning the sensory delight in posting and capping this pen; music to the ear and confidence in hand.
Apparently, Aurora is noted for toothy nibs that provide feedback. I ordered my Ipsilon in a fine nib and I am not sure if I'm competent to discern the difference between "feedback" or "scratchy". While not buttery smooth and juicy as my TWSBI medium nib, I tend to like it. Actually, it has a similar (if not better) feel to it than the medium nib on my Pelikan M200. However, I think there is a fairly narrow sweet spot to both of those nibs. For those that care, it writes very well nib upside down too. Maybe smoother in that mode as an X-fine. It probably doesn't help that I tend to roll my pen while writing. I may try to dabble with smoothing the nib tip a touch. I haven't had any hard starts or skipping using Noodler's 54th Mass. or Akkerman's #3 Blauw.
Overall, I think highly of this Ipsilon by Aurora. Would I buy this pen again? Given the great deal I received from Pen Chalet, absolutely. And a plug for them, yep they deserve it. Their service was outstanding.

Optima Auroloide Collection
The Aurora Optima Auroloide pen just arrived today-I have the green Optima. The pen is gorgeous! - the gold fittings are well placed and designed into the pen. Really nice balance and the clip secures the pen well in the pocket. The pic's online don't do justice to the actual color. It writes with a very light touch to the paper and glides as if it's on oil ! I have Visconti's, Parkers, Mont Blanc's, Pelikan's, Conklins and Franklin-Christoph's. For balance, ease of writing, striking appearance and overall quality it's already in my 5 pen leather roll-up!

My favorite ink. Always a consistent ink to use-smooth and even color. Not an ink to buy, however, if you need a waterproof ink.

Pen Chalet offers the ink at a reasonable price and delivered the bottles I ordered within a couple of days of my order.
