Ink & Pen Notes: Aurora Optima Nero Perla (M) with Aurora Black

Aurora Optima Nero Perla (M) with Aurora Black ink bottle

The Aurora Optima Nero Perla, with its medium nib, was inked with Aurora Black for just over 3 months. While that’s a long time, even for me, the pen had a lot of competition for my attention.

There’s not much for me to say about this combination. They go together – the black and white pen and the deep, dark black ink. They happen to be from the same brand.

I like the deep black of the ink, although it’s a little wet for my tastes and that did make me pass over the pen a couple of times. I am becoming more comfortable with medium nibs, especially for sit down, long writing sessions. This pen is also one I like a lot.

For now the Aurora Optima and Aurora Black ink will have a bit of a break.
