“On April 3, after trying out my new Aurora Optima Demonstrator fountain pen for a week’s worth of writing, I emptied the ink out of that pen, cleaned it up, got out my new unused Onoto 261, and filled it from the bottle of Onoto Golden Brown ink I got with it. After writing with the 261 for four days in succession, I can report the following:
Without fail, every time I take the cap off the pen and put the nib to paper, the ink flows on to it immediately and consistently, not too much nor too little, and without any skipping, no matter whether I’m writing slowly or quickly or whether I’m writing large or small. In other words, the pen works exactly the way I was hoping it would. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the Aurora, but that’s my problem.”
