This pen had been on my list ever since it was released. I was worried it might sell out before I was able to meet my savings goal for it (definitely have to budget for these types of things!), but luckily, Iguana Sell had my back. Even though I usually prefer fine nibs, I went with a medium for a change, and I really do like it. It does indeed put down a medium-width line, and I think it just pairs well with this pen, plus it’s an extremely smooth writer, right out of the box, no adjustments needed at all. The piston is equally as smooth, as is the screw cap, which comes off without much turning, which I very much appreciate.
As far as looks, the pink/salmon color of the pen’s cap and body has a lot of depth and goes very well with the rose gold appointments and nib. The auroloide is actually not completely opaque, so for example, when looking at the pen when it’s capped, it is darker where the black grip and feed are compared to where the rose gold nib is since those colors kind of show through the pink/salmon auroloide. I wasn’t really expecting it to be as noticeable as it is, but it doesn’t take away from the beauty of the pen—in fact, I think it might enhance its depth even more! I also love that the contrasting color is black. It’s a rather stark contrast, yet at the same time, it makes complete sense, especially with the matching black feed. The ink window is rather handy and gives the pen another nice aesthetic touch as well. Also, the subtle curves of the clip and the simple script on the cap’s accent band ("Aurora") and the pen number on the cap just below the finial are delicate and smooth and complement each other very well.
I currently have my pen inked with Robert Oster Plumb Nut, and it is a great match, I must say. When not in use, it resides in a Rickshaw Bagworks single sleeve (L) so I don’t have to put it back in its (very large) box for storage every day to keep it protected. It fits perfectly in the sleeve, which does a very good job of keeping it away from potential sources of scratching while also being very low profile.
The only "gripe," I suppose, for lack of a better word, I had, is that the actual box it came in was kind of scuffed and had a bunch of sawdust residue or something covering it? I honestly thought it was a kind of spray painted effect, which would’ve been rather neat actually, had it not been wiped off with a finger. It wasn’t too hard to clean off, though, and I appreciated the bottle of black Aurora ink in the bottom compartment of the box.
While presentation-wise it could have been a tad cleaner, the pen itself is top-notch. The Aurora 888 Venus is a stunning pen and a wonderful, smooth writer, and I’m very glad I was finally able to purchase it!
(Video trigger warning: there is a loud siren that will start at 1:31 in the video and get louder before quieting down (it signals the beginning of Shabbat); it can still be slightly be heard at the end of the video. It's an old WWII air raid siren, so it is very loud. Also, please forgive my horribly scraggly sweater sleeves in the video—it was laundry day!)
I love this pen. The rose colour evokes fresh memories of my late wife, Rosemary. That is why I picked this colour.
I have it loaded the pen with Aurora Anniversary Red ink. Occasionally, it skips a little when I restart writing a sentence, but I love the line variation it produces to give my handwriting a beautiful flair. I appreciate the care that the team at Iguana took to check the pen before sending it to me at the other end of the Earth.
Cheers from down under,
the cross peerless 125 is delicate，luxurious，fluent and fine。it's better than my expected

The Pelikan M205 is an excellent entry into a range of what I consider some of the best, most reliable and consistent fountain pens available today, and the Blue Marble I received from Iguanasell is no exception. Even with its steel nib, as opposed to the gold nibs that grace the higher priced models (M400 and up), it's a smooth writer and an excellent performer. It never fails to write, never skips, and lays down what I consider a perfectly wet line. I wanted to add the Blue Marble to my collection, and Iguanasell had it on sale at a fantastic price. It was beautifully and safely packed and shipped it out to me promptly, arriving in a few days in perfect condition. An excellent product, and excellent price, and first rate service - a hard combination to beat! Highly recommended.
This was my first Montegrappa and my first purchase from Iguanasell. The pen arrived quickly, all customs were paid so no issue there, and the pen is fabulous! It looks gorgeous, it writes even better and I'm very happy with my purchase.
I got the medium nib, and it is quite wet and very smooth, one of the best out-of-the-box nibs that I have seen. No feed issues, the pen writes immediately even after sitting for days. I love how nicely the cap screws in, and when posting, the plastic in the cap fits snugly without marring the pen surface.
Great find, excellent pen and well made, the team at Iguana sell made it very easy to buy with flawless great customer service!
Love the appearance and it writes like a dream. It’s my favorite fountain pen.
A good site and good seller. I wasn't too sure when I first came across igunasell as I used to buy from other sites. It turned out I made a good decision. The quality and the delivery of this watch band has met my expectations.
What a wonderful experience! As someone who lives in th US, I was a bit hesitant to purchase from this dealer, but I'm so glad I did. The watch arrived in excellent condition and functions flawlessly. Another great thing to add is how informed I was from Iguanasell regarding my order every step of the way from Spain to the US, I was never once left in the dark. What a wonderful company to do buissiness with.
