The Aurora 88 Urano 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 Auroloide while the cap’s finial, grip section, and piston knob are made from black resin. All the metal trim is plated in rose gold to match the solid 18k rose gold nib. The nib is available in ten widths: EF, F, Fine Flex, M, B, BB, OB, OBB, Factory Italic, and Factory Stub. Aurora’s nibs are excellent candidates for customization from a simple Tune & Smooth to any custom grind. Now available are 3 new factory grinds called Chinese Calligraphy nibs in widths CEF, CF, and CM. These nibs are similar to the Sailor Naginata Togi nibs.
Each Aurroa 88 Urano 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 Urano 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.
Availability will be extremely limited.
