Hi all!


I am contemplating getting a new fountain pen and cannot decide between a Sheaffer Valor or an Aurora Talentum Finesse (the Aurora Talentum is a little above my price range, and anyway I quite like the Finesse's slimmer look).


Unfortunately the only review I could find of the Aurora is one that mentions the cap not being tight fitting enough, leading to the ink drying out by the next day. 


I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the Aurora, or could give any input as to which of the two I should go with?


Thanks in advance!

I can't say anything about the Aurora. But I had a Sheaffer Valor once. It had to be held at a rather steep angle (between paper and pen). That didn't suit me at all, and I finally got rid of the pen. But if that's no problem for you, the Valor is certainly a good pen!
