Hello, folks. I would appreciate your input here.
After a few years of coveting, I finally bought an Aurora Luna limited edition fountain pen during the holiday shopping season. The pen is thrillingly beautiful, but the one I received had some issues. The two main issues were: 1, there was an extra "cut" on the underside of the nib, and 2, there was some kind of residue (glue?) where the ink window meets the body of the pen. I sent it back to the vendor, who has now determined that it is defective and is asking me whether I want to have it sent to Aurora for repair.
Normally, I would just get a replacement pen. But this is a limited edition, and I have not been able to find another reliable source for the pen. I really want to have a Luna--ideally, one with good fit and finish, but I also worry that something would go wrong in sending it for repair.
Has anyone here had experience with Aurora warranty/repair work, and how did it go?
Or should I just keep the pen as-is and try to mod the nib later (and just live with the glue residue defect)?
Alternatively, do you know anywhere else where I could buy a Luna?
