Hi, I'm William and I'm in Brisbane Australia. I found this group while googling for a solution to problems with my 75th Anniversary Aurora fountain pen.

Thanks so much for shedding light on my question.

Is is overkill having a silver cap over a resin body? I would think the resin body is easier to write with as opposed to an all silver body which i have found to be WAY TOO expensive for my taste. Even if I could throw down that kind of bling, I think I would shoot myself before I did. Opinions on the Doue would be appreciated. Is it overkill and I should just stick with an all resin body? I know to each his/her own, but it never hurts to get a few opinio
