Recommended Posts

Sanpei, thanks for the great write-up; thank you also for the beautiful Aurora 88 you sold me and which arrived to USA w/o problem. :thumbup:

I'll add my vote of thanks for the great write-up and hope we'll see many more. Also, I'll add to the previous post by saying the 3 Aurora 88s (vintage) from sanpei are fabulous examples of a great pen! I highly recommend him as both a knowledgeable Aurora collector and as a very reliable source of great vintage Italian pens. (The usual disclaimer: I am in no way related to or affiliated with him--just a very satisfied customer.)

sanpei, you have such an enviable collection! There are only a few folks around here about whom I'd say that.


My first Optima is on its way to me from Canada! A modern celluloid one to boot. :D My first modern Aurora, even though I've been using two modern 14k Aurora nib units in other pens. Couldn't take it any longer. :)
