Online fountain pen communities always have nice things to say about the Diplomat Aero pens, even if these pens are never the superstar of any particular category. Not as glamorous as Watermans, not as high tech as a Pilot Vanishing Point, not as "affordable journeyman" as a Lamy Safari. But still, the Aero has rapidly become my go-to pen for all occasions. Quality craftsmanship, a wonderful nib, and a unique design make this one of those pens that everyone ought to buy at some point. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.
