Is Aurora Optima Mini same as Optima? Model number is 996. It looks like regular Optima Aurolide to me but Im not sure what size is it.

Mini is mini. :) Very small. About the size of Kaweco Sports?

Thanks. I thought the seller has maybe misnamed it because I never heard of Optima Mini before. That means I will pass on this one.

The Aurora Optima Mini is a small size Optima which was meant to be dedicated to women users

fpn_1557779343__aurora_optima_mini.jpg

Interestingly it has threads on the section just after the nib, which would make it comfortable (no threads under the fingers) were it not for the fact that it has a rather evident step down barrel to section...

I have only seen it in red auroloide (a rather dark cherry red and black) although I'm sure there is a black version.

(A Sapphire blue version seems to exist, and also the green auroloide - I am not counting the Minima versions here, Sole and the other red one).

It sells at a list price of euro 450 (eg Novelli, Rome)

 

regarding size

capped 11,3 cm;
posted13,1 cm;
cap width 54,2 mm;
barrel width 105 mm.

 

its just slightly larger than an M300

 

there's a nice review here on FPN by Phthalo
