The Aurora Mercurio is a numbered limited edition of 888 pieces and comes equipped with the traditional size six 18k nib. The material is exclusive to Aurora and features a marble grey acrylic blend. The material is developed under Aurora’s guidance and is hand turned in their Torino factory. As with all Aurora made nibs, they are 100% produced in house through an eleven complex processes. The feeds are made from high quality ebonite.
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 rhodium plated to match the rhodium plated 18k nib. The nib is available in fine and medium.
