Aurora continues its journey through the Solar System, inspired by the splendor of the Planets … the Aurora Mercurio 888 piston fountain pen is a fitting tribute to the inspiring planet of Mercury! We are pleased to announce the release of the sixth pen within the Aurora Planets series, titled Mercurio. You may recall the previous models, including Sole, Marte, Saturno, Nettuno and the ever popular Nebulosa. Nebulosa was the first purple “Auroloide” material and was sold out in within a short period of time.
The Mercurio is a numbered limited edition of 888 pieces and comes equipped with the traditional size six 18k nib. As with all Aurora made nibs of this size, the feeds are 100% made of ebonite, which supports the consistent ink flow.
Like all 88s, the 888 Mercurio features Aurora’s unique piston filler design with a built-in ink reserve. When the pen runs dry, extend the piston to access enough ink for several more pages of writing. The piston knob will remain extended acting as a reminder to refill the pen while still allowing the cap to be posted.
All the metal trim is plated in gold to match the solid 18k gold nib. The nib is available in six widths: EF, F, M, B, BB, Stub and Italic.
As with the previous models from the Aurora Planets series, the Nettuno is not long for this world and will be sold out soon.
