Aurora 88 Anniversario with Flex Nib

I picked up this pen at La Couronne du Comte (don’t forget that BROWN10 gives you 10% off there!) and I find it a fascinating pen.  The real question, of course, is: is the nib comparable to vintage flex nibs, as Aurora claims?  Watch the full review to find out.
