Aurora Mercurio 888 Limited Edition Fountain Pen
We are pleased to announce the release of the sixth pen of the limited edition Aurora 888 within the Aurora Planets series, titled Mercurio or Mercury in English. You may recall the previous models, including Sole, Marte, Saturno, Nettuno and the ever popular Nebulosa. Nebulosa was the first purple “Auroloide” material.
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.
The Aurora 888 Mercurio is made entirely in-house, including the nib and ebonite feed. The cap and barrel are made from Auroloide while the cap’s finial, grip section, and piston knob are made from black resin. 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 to match the Plated solid 18k gold nib. The nib is available in six widths: EF, F, M, B, BB, Stub and Italic.
MSRP is $895
