Aurora Reviews

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.

The Aurora Ipsilon pen is a joy to use. Smooth right out of the box. I own several and for the money they are a excellent buy. I own fountain pens of different makes but my starter pen was an Aurora

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!

Bottled Ink(45ml)
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.

Ipsilon Satin Collection
An excellent office pen. Attractive but subtle and professional looking; very reliable - does not dry out even if left for a couple of weeks between uses; the EF is genuinely narrow which makes it excellent for low quality paper and makes a full converter go a long way.

This lives in my laptop bag at all times.

Bottled Ink(45ml)
I'm pretty new to fountain pens but I've tried quite a few black inks. Before trying this one my favorite was the Noodlers Black. This is just as black but just seems to flow so much better. It's not archival ink and is not water proof. But the lines are excellent. Pens that did not write well with my Noodlers came to life with this ink! I highly recommend giving it a try. Personally, it's now the only black I'll use.

Bottled Ink(45ml)
I love the Aurora black ink! It creates a super dark line and has to be my favorite choice for a black fountain pen ink. If you have not tried the Aurora black ink I would highly recommend it.

Bottled Ink(45ml)
After trying a few black inks, the Aurora is by far my favorite. It's a dark black that has a great flow out of my Lamy Sarafi F nib. I would order this ink again. Received the ink quickly and it was packaged very well. Thanks Penchalet!

Bought this pen as a gift for my father. I have the same pen, except in the fountain nib configuration and I LOVE it. My new favorite writing instrument. I feel like this line is a great value for an attractive pen that's fun to use.

Very nice pen and extremely lightweight. I am fussy about my pens, but the Aurora Rollerball writes really nice. Pen Chalet is very efficient. Ordered my pen and it was shipped the same day. The pen arrived in Canada less than a week after ordering. I will definitely order from Pen Chalet again. Much better prices than other retailers for the same pen.

This pen is gorgeous and customer service is beyond compare! The pictures don't do the entire sterling silver model justice, and Aurora nibs are excellent out of the box. This pen represents an excellent value for someone who wants sterling silver without breaking the bank.

I bought the blue resin version with a fine nib. The blue color is not quite as 'electric' as pictured on the site but is very good looking. The nib is very smooth and lays down a lot of ink. Even with no pressure it creates a solid line and paired with a rich blue ink is fantastic to write with.

This is the first full-size pen I like to post. The weight is very nice and the tapered cap looks good with the Aurora logo displayed as I write. Ornamentation on the pen is not overdone and this is by far my favorite looking nib.

The only drawback for me is being prone to scratch the all chrome cap when I carry it. This has become a frequently used desk and journal pen rather than one I carry.

If you have the money to indulge yourself on a luxury item like this, then do it. The blue auroloide and gold trim are an unusually beautiful combination; the pencil feels good in your hand; it actually makes writing fun.
