5 / 5
One of the best feelings, if you are a pen fan and/or do a lot of writing, is a new writing instrument. This one caught immediately my attention. The anxiety to have it (i live outside the US) became greater and greater each day. Once arrived, the feeling can't be described!
First impressions, 1) amazing design, amazing colors great to have the chrome-plated rings and clip, and 18k white gold, 2) the smoothness of the piston filler and its great capacity, its a joy to fill the pen, mine is full of a dark green, perfect match! 3) the nib, ordered an extra fine. At first, a little bit scratchy, and had to put some pressure to have a continuos flow, after a week of usage the nib is perfect!!!! If you have a medium i know it will be smooth and clean from the beginning (have two more auroras one in M and one F, both great out of the box). I actually do love this EF because after that week my notes are so clean. Now it is not necessary to put the same pressure as the beginning, though still have to put some. Maybe a little adjustment and it will be great, or juwt let the time do that job.
Finally, was amazing that mine is, and this is irrelevant to the functionality of the pen, though a nice coincidence, mine is 007/360, so i have the "Bond Monviso" limited edition.
You wont regret this amazing pen!
