Aurora Blue/Black ink now in stock.
Aurora Pen Company now has 3 - yes, that's t-h-r-e-e, colors of ink! While Diamine may have 100, who knows how many colors Noodler's has, and Private Reserve has 30+ colors, Aurora now has THREE! And what a color it is! Aurora inks probably have the best reputation as the richest, darkest black, and a blue that for years ranked number one in the charts as a favorite blue by everyone for its depth of color, and the truest blue actually available. So that's what makes this Blue/Black so exciting, because now you have the best black and blue combined into the one blue/black. Ample supplies of all three colors, are now in stock. And now the rest of the story.

It was probably 20 years ago when Aurora really came on the seen here in the US with the Optima fountain pens made with Aurora's own Auroraloid. (Fun Fact, Jerry Greenberg founder of the Yafa Pen Company, distributors of great brands like Delta and Stipula was the first one to import and distribute the Aurora brand in the USA in the late 1970's early 1980's,) Now Aurora is under the watchful eye of Kenro Industries in Mineloa New York. A great group of folks under the leadership of Joel Blumberg.

Getting back to inks Aurora has always been happy with the two colors they had, Blue and Black, no Red Green Purple or Vampire Red for that matter, Just the two colors. And well they did with just the two. Long before there were brands like Private Reserve and Noodlers or even the thought of someone writing a review for ink, let alone a bottle of ink for over $40.00, (Caran d'Ache) Aurora was bay far the best selling ink on the market, for those that remember Parker came close or in some markets first with the Parker PennMan collection but even they had 5 colors. Parker discontinued the Penman inks in 2000, and today can command prices as high as 150.0 a bottle. But the Aurora inks continued to chug along with rave reviews for their blue as a close second to the Parker Penman and a black that was darker and denser then any other. Many have tried to copy the Aurora blue but to date no one really has, but then again with so many other brands with countless blues to try it may be to late to have on single blue stand out above the rest, unless it's a limited edition. Well many years past and finally Aurora came out with another color, while it may seem like they just did a 70-30 split or some other ratio the Blue/Black for Aurora really is different in formula and consistency. I like this ink while not as dense as the blue there is a real depth to the color in that the saturation on the paper is complete not and all washed out or for that matter the ink does not fade much when there is less ink flow from your pen.









It's pretty simple if your looking for a really good ink and not interested in fancy bottles or a half dozen shades of blue with gold or silver sparkles it, then the Aurora inks should be your go to inks, they sure are mine!! Unless I need a really cool Monteverde Gemstone..... lol

Platinum Lilas 3776 Fountain Pen
Platinum Pen Co. will release a new color “LILAS” featuring the image of a flower for #3776 CENTURY NICE series.

While there are still many masculine fountain pens, there have been more women searching for fountain pens suitable for them. We have made more of a feminine fountain pen using a pink gold metal trim with a pale pink body to match the image of the lilas flower (meaning lilac in French), so that women can choose a fountain pen with the sense of selecting fine jewelry.

The lilac flower symbolizes friendship, memories of adolescent, innocence and first love. The elegant and glamorous style of the LILAS model matches the meaning of the flower, making a perfect gift for your loved ones.
*It comes with a blotter card with a serial number for the first limited 2,000 pens.
