Customer Reviews

Ipsilon Deluxe Collection
This pen is exactly as described in the online reviews i read before purchasing. It is a beautiful classic pen and a stunning writer if a toothy. It is either you who feels or the pen which feels the paper. I am not sure which, but it is a marvelous experience.

This is a 14K gold nib and my third pen with gold nibs. I now see everyone's love of gold nibs.

Pen Chalet was very fast in getting me the pen, just a matter of 2 or 3 days. Thank you.

Kappa
I bought the red Kappa and was not disappointed with this rollerball. The red is bright and makes me want to pick up the brilliant blue!

Ipsilon Satin Collection
Beautiful pen and really nice presentation box; nice touch for it to come with a blue ink cartridge (rather than black). I bought it as a gift for a friend; looking forward to giving it to him!

Talentum Full Black
I'm a big fan of Aurora pens, both for style and performance. In both respects, this Talentum Black Ops outperforms my two 88's and two Optimas. While I wish it was a piston-filler like the others, I find the Talentum model style to be cleaner and more versatile (Optimas really need to be posted) and the 'blacked-out' appearance is exceptionally well-appointed, lending a 'cooler' more streamlined look than the equivalent 88 model. Performance-wise, the Talentum nib and feed operate even more smoothly than my other Auroras, requiring only a feather touch to produce a consistent, wet line. All in all, a truly first-rate pen.

Ipsilon Deluxe Collection
Gorgeous Fountain Pen, as expected from Aurora, Italy. I purchased the red color and it's stunning. Looks great with the white gold nib. I believe I have made it clear that she is a looker. A real beauty. Now, for writing, my review is nothing short of accolades. Just the right amount of feedback - it's not buttery smooth like some other gold nibs. I personally like the feedback - it definitely does not skip or anything like that. Just a pleasant writing experience, every time. Glad I upgraded to the Deluxe which has the 14k nib. I am sure the steel nibs are excellent too, I just prefer gold. It's not as soft and flexy as some gold nibs, however. It's pretty rigid. A+. If you are looking for a flexy nib, I would suggest the Aurora Optima Flex LTD Ed. 333. Have that one and love it. It's really like no other fountain pen I have ever used! Thanks, Pen Chalet. Sincerely, Anthony

Optima Flex
The Optima Flex is one of the most finest nib I’ve ever written with. The nib is a nice smooth Flexable nib what a nib I said to my self.i post my pen which help me get a better fit in my hand and I’ve written with this pen for hrs. The pen is well worth the price in my opinion. Ron at Pen Chalet was very helpful, kept me posted when the pen would arrive and when the pen would be mailed out and would answer any of my questions to keep me well informed. I made a commitment to my self to buy this pen from pen chalet cause of their customer service. I do pen reviews on YouTube and per my review of this pen I found it to be a outstanding pen. I recommend this pen yes it’s high dollar but worth every penny for it.... Larry The Pen Bug Guy.

Great pen! Well balanced in my hand, gliding smooth like silk on paper. Flawless flow of green (Monteverde's Yosemite green), what a gorgeous loo with my green Diopside Minerali!

Bottled Ink(45ml)
This is my second bottle of Aurora black. The first one lasted many years because I don’t use black that often and it was good to the last drop. When I do use black Iike it black, not dark grey and I also don’t use permanent ink. That’s why I got started using fountain pens to begin with. When I need permanent I use a rollerball. It is a bit pricey but if you are reading fountain pen and ink reviews what difference does a few dollars make to get what you want?

88 Anniversary
I had been tracking the Silver Aurora 88 Flex since i saw the prototype at the Baltimore Pen Show in March. Sleek, stunning, soft nib, lovely writer. Now that i own it, it is everything it was then, and more. A visceral attraction that is borne out every time I use it.

88 Anniversary
The experience I had at a fountain pen store in Rome, Italy when I first wrote with an Aurora 88 took my breath away. I've been obsessing about owning one ever since June. Nobody should put an 88 to paper unless he/she is prepared to gasp in astonishment at the immediate flow of ink, the barely perceptible feedback from the nib and the comfort of holding the slightly extra long section. It is an astonishing experience. That memory has stuck with me these past 5 months and guided my decision to purchase the 88. Given the opportunity to buy this one (brown) I hesitated only long enough to decide that the Black Friday price was right. Moreover, after seeing the review done by Pen Habit I scaled back my expectations that what I'd be buying is a "wet noodle" nib. All the better for me! This puts the reality in line with the adjusted expectation of what I purchased. And that has resulted in letting go of the fantasy and embracing the reality of an absolutely flawless writing instrument that provides a totally satisfying experience. Watch the Youtube video for cautions, comparisons and a "heads up" comment about the nature of individually tuned Aurora nibs. Would I buy another? Absolutely not. One is all that's needed. It's complete.

Pencil is excellent. Was a very well received gift to match the pen the recipient already had. Aurora are a great pen company - the aforementioned pen ended up with some of the stainless steel coming off. I contacted Aurora to ask what could be done. They requested I return it to them (they paid for the postage) and sent me out a brand new one, even though I hadn't registered the product.

This pen (italic) took some getting used to...but now I love it!
The italic nib is crisp and does require some discipline, but results in some nice juicy line variation.
I have the yellow one inked up with Pilot/Namiki Yu-yake. Ink flow is nice and steady.

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
