Pen of the Day: Aurora Optima Blue Auroloide

Aurora Optima fountain pen blue and gold

Aurora Optima Blue/Gold with broad nib. We’re having a strange spring here. The weather seems like it’s been either cold and snowy or 68 degrees and sunny.  Except when it’s been both over the course of a single day.  Which, okay, I totally enjoy.

Yesterday, however, was just gray, with a few snowflakes. I’m not usually a fan of blue pens with gold trim, but on a boring day I found this beautifully warm and inviting.

And I’m not a big user of broad nibs.  But this one gives blue ink extra pizzazz.

For comparison, I used the same pen a few weeks ago with Aurora Blue.
