  3. While beginning an Aurora 88K piston replacement I removed the section/nib unit and saw this. I have yet to touch it. It looks waxy. Has anyone seen anything like this? I am hoping the retaining nut and such are there and this is not all that is holding the seals in place... edit- It definitely seems to be wax after touching it. I also touched a razor blade to it lightly and it did nick the substance which is another reason I think it is wax. Once fully extended like this the piston knob keeps turning.

    Aurora Aquila Back End Disassembly

    Does anyone here have advice on opening the back end of the Aquila? The piston knob is open ended but I do not see a screw head as expected.
  5. Hello, I have one of the original versions of the black celluloid 88s. It has a fine, firm 14K nib and I've only ever filled it with Aurora Black. However, after using this pairing for quite some time, I'm finding the nib doesn't do the ink justice; it's simply too dry for this firm fine and I think the dryness of the ink accentuates the feedback this pen is known for. But at the same time, I don't think any wet ink is the answer. Maybe something in between Aurora Black and something more lubricating. I'd like the ink to pair well with a firm fine nib, but also not mess with the inte
  6. Hello, I purchased a beautiful first Italian pen called Aurora Nikargenta which looks like P 51 that I love. The nib is amazing and pen fills well. However upon filling the pen does not write. Can you please help or suggest a repair person who can help me with it in the United States. The pen came from Italia so I rather not send it back. Many thanks.

  10. Ok. Maybe I am going crazy, but I swear I saw a post a day or two ago announcing an Aurora 88 Sole, not an Optima, but an Aurora 88. Sole. Coming this summer, $795. Am I crazy? Does someone know where a link to that is? Or is this one of those things that got taken down because it's not supposed to be announced yet?

    Very Stiff Aurora 88 Piston

    I recently acquired a 1950s vintage Aurora 88. The pen is in good shape overall and I would like to press it into service. However, the piston turning knob is incredibly stiff. So stiff that I thought it was jammed. With increasing pressure, I was able to move it, but stopped. I'm afraid of stressing the piston rod or stripping threads, etc... If it was a modern pen, I would think to apply silicone grease. Is that appropriate for this pen? If so, how do you get the grease to where it needs to be? Thanks in advance for your help!
  12. Ciao a tutti! I bought a user-grade vintage Aurora 88 with Fine flex nib off of FPN Classifieds recently, but having serious nib issues. It railroads like crazy any time I try to flex, and even a little when I don't. I've tried Aurora Blue, Pelikan 4001 Black, Diamine Grey, and Sheaffer Skrip BB. It doesn't seem to matter, because it still railroads. I've unscrewed the nib section and soaked it overnight, to no avail. Normal writing is generally fine, though there's still the odd occurence of railroading. That said, with normal, non-flex writing, the super-soft nib lays a super-wet "F
  13. A few months back I purchased a vintage (c. 1950s) Aurora 88 Nikargenta from what appeared to be a well regarded seller off eBay but when the pen arrived it was hugely disappointing. The piston leaked, the tines were completely out of alignment and I suspected the iridium on the nib was probably shot. To her credit the seller adjusted her price downward by an agreed amount and I set out to have the pen restored. Mike Masuyama restored the piston and tweaked, tuned and smoothed the nib. I dreamed of this classic beauty smoothly scrolling across the page, flexing gracefully to create elegant

    Aurora 88 - Needs Repair?

    Good Evening All, I was recently gifted with an Aurora 88 and I'm not sure if it's holding ink and if I need to have it repaired. First, I'm pretty new to the fountain pen world. But this was a really nice gift and it's slowly becoming my favorite pen. The pen I have is the Aurora 88 Large Black Resin w/Gold Trim. I noticed that after I inked it (Omas Violet) for the first time and wrote with it for a day that it would hard start, railroad and then quit altogether. Thinking I had done a lot of writing and had just emptied it (despite the window still showing ink, I cleaned it and re
  15. I am trying to decide which fountain pen to get as my first grander fountain pen. I will be making the purchase later this year but i feel it does not hurt to start plan this early.. I mostly like pens with stiff nibs. Mostly i use pens for quick note taking & sketching and stiff nibs with little flex work for me. At the moment i am mostly considering between modern Montblanc 146 and Aurora 88 large in Extra Fine nib size. If anyone is in possession of both i would be glad to hear of comparison of their nibs. Also, all ideas on other fountain pens with stiff nibs and 10 – 12 mm section wi
  16. I was going through the pen box and saw a few pens that I had picked up from many Mumbai stationery shops. These were from the mid-1990s to early 2000s when I had a field job and had to traverse through all parts of Mumbai. I popped into every pen shop as a habit and picked up whatever I liked. While there are many pens, I want to start with these three which were clearly inspired by the Aurora 88 contemporary pen. I have a couple of Senator pens and another Flair pen that were inspired by the Pelikan M200 and M400. I will post those pictures too. I got these in local stationary shops in M
  17. Recently I've been thinking a lot about windows. No, not those windows....I mean ink windows. When I first started my FP obsession, I never noticed them before---being too busy being awed by the wide array of nibs, finishes, and shapes of fountain pens. But now that things have calmed down (somewhat), I realize that I really like them. They're simple, functional, pretty things that remind me of stained glass when you hold them up to the light. They're not as blatant as, say, demonstrators (a personal dislike of mine), but petite, light, and floaty. And so useful, too! My MB 146 has a lov
