The Aurora Limited Edition 888 Plutone Fountain Pen is available for order on-line and in-store at Dromgoole's.
Aurora continues its journey through the Solar System, inspired by the splendor of the Planets … the Aurora Plutone 888 piston fountain pen is a fitting tribute to the dwarf planet Pluto. We are pleased to announce the release of the ninth pen within the Aurora Planets series, titled Plutone. You may recall the previous models, including Sole, Nebulosa, Marte, Urano, Saturno, Nettuno, Mercurio, and Giove.
The Plutone, manufactured entirely in Italy, is a numbered limited edition of 888 pieces and comes equipped with the traditional size six 18k nib in extra fine, fine, medium, broad, double broad, stub and italic. As with all Aurora made nibs of this size, the feeds are 100% made of ebonite, which supports the consistent ink flow. The body is made of a light blue Auroloide material and a black resin grip.
Like all 88s, the 888 Plutone 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.
As with the previous models from the Aurora Planets series, the Plutone comes in an elegant black gift box along with a 2 year warranty.
