The Aurora 88 Saturno is the fifth release in Aurora’s Stellar Collection after the well received Urano, Marte, Nebulosa, and Sole. The 88 Saturno is limited to 888 pieces worldwide with fewer than 100 available in the US.
The Aurora 88 Saturno is made entirely in-house, including the nib and ebonite feed, which are outsourced by most pen companies. The cap and barrel are made from marbled blue nacrè Auroloide while the cap’s finial, grip section, and piston knob are made from black resin. All the metal trim is plated in yellow gold to match the solid 18K gold nib. The nib is available in ten widths: EF, F, M, B, BB, Factory Italic, and Factory Stub. Aurora’s nibs are excellent candidates for customization from a simple Tune & Smooth to any custom grind, all of which are included at no additional charge!
Each Aurroa 88 Saturno fountain pen is engraved with its limited edition number out of 888 on the top of the cap, opposite the clip.
Like all 88s, the Saturno features Aurora’s unique piston filler design with a built-in ink reserve. When the pen runs dry, extend the piston to access enough ink for several more pages of writing. The piston knob will remain extended acting as a reminder to refill the pen while still allowing the cap to be posted.
