Hi, everyone! 

 

We just wrote a review of the Aurora Minerali series demonstrators - tried to provide some advice as to why we like them so much (all their nibs are made in-house!). These are definitely some of our favorite demonstrators out there! 

 

Let us know what you think or if there's another demonstrator you like more! :)

If I wasn't so against gold nibs coated in pure white (I'll begrudgingly take two tone) I'd probably buy one of these. I really do want to try an aurora triple broad nib.

Demonstrators from Aurora are all rhodium currently - and unfortunately a BBB nib is something they don't make. :( Don't think anyone is making them now except bespoke MB that are done during the factory tour, etc...

You should put at least some of your review here otherwise the thread is not a review it is an advertisement and does not belong in this forum.

Many people do not click to links off site so I think you ate doing yourself a disservice.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

I didn't click on the link either.  Zaddick is right, this is an advertisement.

I've seen some of the other aurora models with a triple broad and OBBB. know the 88 isn't one of them though.

 

The alpha can sometimes be found with an OBBB and BBB.

They don't do them in the factory anymore (from what we're told), but there are some great nibmeisters that are able to grind them into these sizes. Since they are produced in-house, they're pretty easy to grind! I'd like to write with one too - preferably the oblique!!

Indeed, as you are selling these, this has to be seen as an advertisement.

You do some wonderful descriptions, but there is no objectivity to be expected.

 

And advertisements are forbidden in the forums.

 

As a shopowner you are advised to take a Premium Membership. That will give you access to "The Mall" where you can advertise the brands you are selling in that forum.

 

Some information for all members:

 

 

Real reviews should have the whole review text plus some photographs here on the forum, although it is allowed to link for some additional photographs.

 

Posts in the review section that just contain a link to a blog with a review will be moved to the regular brand forums. Even then the post should at least contain some information on what to expect on that site. And as you can see in the reactions above, many members refuse to follow links, for security reasons, and right the are!

 

Pure advertising will be removed.

Thanks for clarifying, and will do in the future!!

Agreed. Look around at some of the other reviews here and you'll get a feel for this site...pen geeks and luxury goods seekers are largely two different crowds. :)
