Presenting a sober and almost understated image, the Aurora Optima Fountain Pen, Black Resin with Chrome Trim and Fine Nib is nonetheless an elegant instrument that is suited to the hands of all individuals who appreciate something more refined than a cheap, mass-produced ballpoint pen. Encased in a beautiful shell of shining black resin, this product bears the Aurora logo stamped on a chrome band encircling the mouth of its cap. Although it can be refilled once its ink reservoir has been exhausted using much the same method as other fountain pens, this particular pen also has a second, hidden reservoir that can be used once its end is turned counter-clockwise. In contrast to most fountain pens of modern design, pens in the Optima line use piston filling systems. Said systems are more reliable and can hold more ink compared to their substitutes, but have become less common due to the increased difficulties in manufacturing them. As a result, Optima pens can be considered true successors to the fine fountain pens of old. On a concluding note, this particular pen uses a fine nib, meaning that its ink transfers to the page in elegant and almost delicate lines that refuse to blotch.
