The Aurora Optima Anniversary fountain pen series consist of 8 new colored resins to be released throughout 2018. Each color will limited to only 330 pens.
The focus of the Optima Anniversary fountain pen is Aurora’s newly developed semi-flexible nib made 14k gold and fully rhodium plated to match the rest pen’s trim. In addition to the fine flex nib installed in the pen, the Nibsmith is proud to offer the Optima Anniversary in 7 additional nib widths: EF, F, M, B, BB, Factory Stub, and Factory Italic, all made from 14k gold and all fully rhodium plated.
One feature that shouldn’t be overlooked is Aurora’s unique piston filling system which provides an small reserve of ink that’s accessible by extending the piston mechanism, providing enough ink for several more pages of writing after the pen initially runs dry. An added benefit to this design is that the filling knob remains extended, acting as a reminder to refill the pen. Please view the video below for a more detailed explanation.
