  1. A vintage Aurora 88 has been on my grail list for a while. This turned out to be the year. I came across an original 88 in good condition from a seller here with lots of positive reviews. The price was right. Not Nikargenta but beggars can’t be choosers. Count me among Aurora 88 fans. The pen lives up to the legend. I love the size of the pen. It’s substantial, both heavier and ever-so-slightly larger-feeling than Parker 51-style pens such as the Wing Sung 601 and 618. The 88 is very comfortable in the hand.

    Gold Flakes In Hooded Nibs

    Hello, So I have a bottle of Emerald of Chivor, and a Lamy 2000. I'd love to be able to put my best ink in my best pen, but this question has been keeping me from committing: is it a good idea to put inks with gold flakes/glitter/what have you into a pen with a hooded/semi-hooded nib? I can see it either being inconsequential, or leading to stoppage and a long cleaning session. I also have a couple Hero 616's that I've never put the ink into for the same reasons. Does anybody have some experience with this? Thanks, jcreilley
  4. So recently I was pen browsing, and I came across a couple of hooded nibs. I was wondering, what is the point (no pun intended) of these? What is the benefit of it, what are the drawbacks? And why did they start being used? Thank you!
