    Attractive but not well-crafted, high maintenance, yet beloved much like all things Italian.
    I had one Maiora and it was perfect, in both build quality and writing quality.

    Mine's not perfect, but it is awesome. Best pen I own (and most expensive). Always inked (for 20 straight months now).

    Well, I got to try Aurora and Visconti at Atlas Stationers while in Chicago. I really liked the capping system on the Visconti. Really quick to deploy in business meetings. The Aurora was a tad too much on the feedback. If anyone wants to do some trading for a high-end Sailor check out my ad in the For Sale section.

    I have a few Visconti pens. A Rembrant, 4 Van Goghs and an Opera (Versailles?).

    The Van goghs are the more recent ones. The most recent one is the blossom pink one that came with a broad nib that is an excellent writer - it wrote perfectly out of the box.
