Diplomat Aero - Simply Terrific


Simon Pen-Pusher

Recommended Posts

Last month, after about a month's regular use of the new Diplomat Aero fountain pen and ballpoint, I wrote a review.

 

In summary it's a terrific new model from this excellent German maker of all metal larger format fountain pens. They are now a favourite for me. I thoroughly recommend the Aero as you'll see in my review.

 

While released later in 2013, the Aero could not be found easily here in Australia. The dealers were a bit slow off the mark. But now it's readily available.

 

This is a pen you have to see in-store to really appreciate how good it looks and how superbly made and finished it is.

Just finishing my first cartridge with my Aero.

 

Lovely pen - literally a head-turner amongst colleagues. But the 'F' nib is actually a very wet medium, so I'll be looking at my dryest inks for the next fill.

 

Oh, and the cap needs a good pull to remove it.

Steel but so smooth

Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism :)

Got one myself a few months ago the Excellence A Carya and an Aero pencil for that matter, I really do like the excellence the nib has just the right amount of feedback. Looking to hopefully own a gold nib nibbed one in the next year hopefully the Excellence A Venezia in the darker grey finish. Which two do you have?

Thank you so much for this. You helped make a decision for me...the pen looks so terrific...I was drawn to it immediately and now I know it performs just as well as it looks...or as some would say..."we dance just as good as we walk."

 

Also I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! you website and blog. So glad I took a trip over there.

I've loved the design of that model ever since I saw it. Unfortunately, my only current Diplomat (a diplomat Excellence) has a ridiculously broad F nib and I'm not that keen on how it writes. I'll consider it only if they release it with an EF nib.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
