Aurora Fowa, Ipsilon ?

Recommended Posts

I have an Aurora , it looks like an Ipsilon but has a 14k nib and a sterling cap like the 88.

Cartridge / converter

The cap is marked " Aurora Fowa "

 

I can't find any reference to Aurora Fowa anywhere!

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks

M

Greetings Alfredo.

Yes, sizewise it is small.

I thought the 88,s were piston fillers, do they also have a C/C version of the 88 small?

Yes, you have the cc filler version. The relationship between the two 88 is similar to the one existing between Montblanc 146 and Montblanc 144.

Thanks for the information.

 

My daughter who is pursuing a Ph.D. in literature (finally) expressed an interest in a fountain pen.

After a little discussion about size weight and nib size, I put a little lineup together fo her to pick from.

Pelikan 400

Montblanc 144

Sailor 1911 small

sterling Parker 75 cisele

and the Aurora 88

 

After a good amount of time with the pens, she decided on the Aurora.

It's her first fountain pen and he loves how it writes and the design.

C/C is easy to manage and I think she will be happy with her choice.

 

FYI Her ink of choice..... Diamine Evergreen.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
