Aurora Ipsilon Fountain Pen - Satin Black, Medium
An innovative line with a strong attitude. The Aurora
Ipsilon, with its unmistakably shaped clip, is a loyal everyday
companion dedicated to those who work and study. It is made of matte black
resin with silver accents and a matching steel nib in medium. This
fountain pen comes with an Aurora blue ink cartridge and an Aurora converter in a black gift box.
A light and well-balanced snap-cap pen, the Ipsilon is a great every day carry pen. With a toothier nib, this pen is ideal for those who like to feel their pen on the paper.
The Ipsilon writes differently than most other fountain pens you may have used. They're intentionally toothy, meaning that they have a pretty noticeable amount of feedback (resistance) as you write. This is especially the case with the extra-fine and fine nibs, which are actually quite narrow in line width and a little dry. There's a pretty noticeable jump in size between the fine and medium, so if you like wetter/smoother nibs, going with a medium or broad will be the way to go. The italic nib is actually more of a true italic, meaning that the edges are crisper than you typically see coming from any other pen company I've seen (typically, to get italics this crisp you have to get it custom ground). The italic can take some getting used to, so don't despair if you need to practice a bit, it's very sensitive to rotation in your hand. Get the hang of it though and you have a wet and crisp italic like I've seen from no other company!
