K. Geplaatst op 15-05-2023 I have not been lucky with Aurora nibs for many years now so in order to safeguard against any potential problems (usually baby's bottom on broader nibs, feeds that are so dry the pen doesn't write etc.) with my latest Aurora I elected to have the Aurora Optima 'B' nib ground to a stub with the instruction that it not be dry. Wetter is better with Aurora from what I've found. The result is a wonderful stub! I enjoy writing with it very much. I strongly suggest to anyone that buys Aurora (or any brand, really) to select at least the "tune" option even if you don't want a special nib grind. Better to have it handled professionally before it gets to you so you don't have to go through the hassle of a return (or mess the nib up by trying to do it yourself! Don't do that! - I've been there).
