A variation on the original 88 Sigaro, Aurora’s Sigaru Blu uses the same lacquering techniques—this time with vibrant blue streaks against a black background. It’s handcrafted from Aurolaide: a proprietary celluloid-acetate derivative that boasts a great depth of color and a slightly warm feel in the hand. Along with chrome-plated trim and a rhodium-plated 18-karat-gold nib, it has a unique piston filler system with a built-in ink reserve. When the pen runs dry, extend the piston to get enough ink for several more pages of writing. Afterwards, the piston knob will remain extended as a reminder to refill the pen (without impeding the cap from being posted). Made in a limited run of 688 pieces, these pens are individually numbered on the cap band.
Note: At checkout, choose an extra-fine, fine, or medium nib.
Italian for “dawn,” Aurora was founded in Turin at the end of the First World War. Indeed, it was the dawn of a new era for battle-weary Italy. That was 1919. Today, the company still occupies the factory it was founded in. And while much has changed over the last 99 years, the quality of Aurora’s pens has not.
