Type  Modern Fountain Pen

Product Name Idea, this is considered a student pen.

Manufacturer and Year  Aurora, Italy -- Probably early 2000s.

Length  5-3/8"

Filling System  Takes Aurora (Parker)-style cartridges or converters. An Aurora converter is installed.

Color All black cap and barrel.  Chrome plated trim. This pen originally would have have a rubbery matte finish but over time the rubber melts and becomes a sticky mess. This is the pen after the rubber has come off.  The color looks very smooth and uniform.

Nib  Fine steel nib. It is smooth and labeled F. It has the same shape as the Ipsilon nib but has a different design etched on it.

Condition  Very nice condition. The pen does not have its original problematic finish we see on some Ideas (which got sticky and tacky, but was easy to remove). There is some pitting on the three chrome plated trim bands and a very small dot on the clip.  There is some light round marks on the cap.   There are microscratches especially near the trim pieces.  There is only slight handwear on the black parts of the pen. No cracks, chips, dents, or scratches.

International Shipping PolicyInternational shipping is based on weight, and we give you a choice (depending on country) of first class, first class registered, priority mail or express delivery (only Express Mail provides true tracking). Internatonal shipments valued at over $40 come with free insurance, unless that service is not available for your specific country.

Most countries charge customs fees on shipments from the United States, but this is not something we can estimate and there is no way to pay these fees in advance. It is the responsibility of the customer to anticipate these costs and pay them when they are assessed by your country or postal system. We have heard that shipments valued at 50 EU or more get assessed fees in EU countries, for example.

UK customers please note: Packages valued at over $18 are subjected to both an administrative charge and a tax by UK customs and Royal Mail. Sorry, this is not something we can predict or pay in advance.
