What Aurora Are You Using Today?



Recommended Posts

Since Omas and Visconti now have their own threads devoted to the topic, I thought there should be an Aurora thread for which pens you are using today.

 

Let's get some eye candy going! ;)

 

--And since I now have an Aurora Optima again, here is mine!

 

I wasn't able to upload a pic from my computer, so here is a link to the image: http://imgur.com/a/tcDL5

Afrika LE, filled with Noodler's Red Rattler.

 

Great pen for more than a dozen years in rotation.

 

Sounds like a great combo! Would love to see a picture...

 

I've never seen a Hastil in vermeil, thanks Jar!

 

@praxim, thank you for the wonderful juxtaposition of old and new; it's nice to see them lined up together.

Since you ask: the only Aurora I now possess, a Hastil in stainless steel, with Pelikan black.

It's just an Afrika...

 

My 3rd Talentum is somewhere in the home basket out of rotation. Used the other 2 until the plastic barrel and cap broke on me over the years..

While I can't say that I am using it today, I have yet to decide on which ink to use. First world dilemma. Aurora 88 Sole

Very fitting combination, Ed! Another gold beauty, jar, thank you for sharing!

 

I wish my handwriting looked like yours, Rogerico.

Not using these today but it seems that over the weekend the Hastil Fairy listened in on my dreams and left a note telling me that some silly offers on a Sterling silver Hastil and one of the 1975 Tortoiseshell Urushi coated Hastils had been accepted and both would be headed my way. The latter was an example where Aurora made the pens which then got shipped to Japan for the urushi work.

Thanks, although I don't think my handwritting deserves your comment!

Thank you for starting this thread. Today I'm using the Aurora 88 Nebulosa I recently received, inked with Cross Violet.

This 88 with EF nib. Just perfect.
