Ink & Pen Notes: Visconti Brunelleschi (M) with Callifolio Aurora

Visconti Brunelleschi (M) with Callifolio Aurora ink bottleThe Visconti Brunelleschi is the fountain pen that triggered my terra cotta themed ink buying binge that Callifolio Aurora was swept up in. It was my first Callifolio ink and it made a good first impression. It uses the same wedge shaped 40ml bottle as the Diamine Anniversary inks, so the ink may be manufactured by Diamine, or they may just share bottles.

The Brunelleschi has a smooth medium nib and has a nice consistent ink flow. There’s no real shading or line variation with this combination but that doesn’t mean I don’t like it. I do like the color and the medium nib does a good job of showing it off. While not fast drying, it dries fast enough to prevent my accidental smudges.

Callifolio Aurora performed well enough to earn a return to this rotation, although it probably won’t be in this pen, at least not right away. I’ll pick another terra cotta themed ink when the Visconti Brunelleschi returns to the rotation, which will be soon.

    • Hi Wondernaut,

      I do really like everything about the pen, but the price was a speed bump. I justified it to myself by saying I wasn’t going to any pen shows this year and it would probably be my only pen purchase. It’s one of those pens that’s probably worth more to me than others because I like everything about it.

      Thanks for reading,
      Ray
