Aurora Optima demonstrator with fine nib. It is Italian Pen Week here at Fountain Pen Follies. Actually, I have no other inked pens that haven’t already been Pens of the Day. But Italian Pen Week sounds better. Lemons to lemonade, that’s my motto.
There’s not much to say about this fantastic pen, except that it’s really perfect.
Right now the pen contains Waterman Serenity Blue, so I could compare a standard blue ink color to KWZ Iron Gall Green Gold. Serenity Blue is a darn good ink: well-behaved in most pens, well-behaved on most papers. And it’s safe for this beautiful Aurora.

Why are you comparing a blue ink to a green-gold/Khaki one?

Sometimes it’s easier for me to get an idea of a color when I can compare it to something I already know, so sometimes it helps me to see an unfamiliar ink next to a blue ink or a black ink. I do that sometimes to give context. 🙂
Beautiful pen. 😍
