2015 Limited Edition Collier!

Posted by on Aug 26 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

We are proud to announce our 2015 Limited Edition Production Line Collier!

See the video and photos below….

This edition will be limited to 150 pieces.

Price is $159.

The material is Black Rose Acrylic, which has been a favorite in our Signature Line as a custom material for a long time, but we’ve never been able to find it in large enough quantities for a series of pens this large until now.

Since this is a Production Line pen, you will not buy this pen directly from Edison.  Instead, you will buy this pen from any of our retailers that we list here.

Email me with any questions!

DC Bound!

Posted by on Aug 10 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

We’ll be leaving for the DC Pen Show tomorrow!

You can watch the video below to see all of the pens that we’ll be bringing.

If you see something that you like but you can’t attend the show, just shoot me an email, and I’ll let you know if we still have it after the show.

While we are gone, I probably won’t be able to do much with emails, but Jake will be fielding emails during that time.

We hope to see you in DC!

Periscope Users? We’ll Be Broadcasting!

Posted by on Jul 21 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

Some of you might remember way back in the day I when used to broadcast penmaking live via Ustream.  You could watch me make your pen!  Back then it was quite a production!  I had a firewire connected camcorder going into a clunky desktop, and it was a pretty cumbersome operation.  I essentially had an entire cart with an old desktop, a huge CRT monitor, and a custom-rigged tripod rolling around my facility to film me making pens!  It took a lot of effort to keep it running.

Back then, it just became too much of a production to keep up, and I let it go over time.  But I’ve heard over and over that people would love for me to find a way to start broadcasting again.

Well, I recently discovered Periscope.  If you aren’t aware, it’s a pretty hot new video platform for social media.  I won’t go into all of the details of Periscope here, but be sure to watch the video at the site to learn more about it and download the app for your mobile device if you like it.

Bottom line, this looks to be a great way for me to get back into broadcasting what happens here at our facility.  Lathe work, milling, sanding, polishing, nib tuning, nib grinding….you name it.  Whatever happens here at our facility, I’ll be broadcasting it.  And of course, the conversation doesn’t have to focus on whatever I’ll be doing during that specific session.  I might broadcast with no agenda at all, so feel free to show up with any questions.

So if you like the looks of Periscope, be sure jump on and follow us.

Our handle is Edisonpenco.

I’ll be doing my first broadcast today!

Thanks!

Back From Vacation!

Posted by on Jul 13 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

We had a wonderful and greatly needed vacation.  Jake and Wendy did an excellent job of holding down the fort while my wife and I were gone, so we didn’t come home to a mountain of emails or other tasks.

If you are expecting an email from me, you probably received a response last week, but there might be a few stragglers.  I’ll have all of my emails done today just in case you are waiting on me to write back.

The DC Pen Show is right around the corner, so save the date!  We’ll look forward to seeing you there.  And then we will have some pretty exciting announcements coming in the next few months, so stay tuned!

Vacation!

Posted by on Jun 22 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

We’ll be leaving for a much needed vacation tomorrow and we’ll be gone for 2 weeks.

Some of you might have pens that are due to ship during this period, but fear not….many of those pen were already shipped.  If not, then we have the vast majority of the work done on those pens.  All that’s left is an engraving and packing.  Wendy and Jake will be here to take care of this for us, so if your pen is due to ship during our vacation, you’ll still get the pen on time.

During vacation, I really like to stay away from work as much as possible, which includes emails.  I will be able to return emails when I return around July 9th-10th.

Thanks!

Indy-Pen-Dance Carrying the Production Line!

Posted by on May 11 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

I’m proud to announce that we have a new retailer in the US carrying our Production Line.

If you look at our list of retailers, you’ll see that we very carefully choose who sells Edison Pens, and this addition is no exception.

Mike and Linda Kennedy run Indy-Pen-Dance. If you are not familiar with Mike and Linda, they are relatively new to the scene, but they’ve been taking some pretty large steps in a very short time.

Mike and Linda are both proteges of Richard Binder, having trained with him for the last 3-4 years. As Richard approaches retirement, he has stopped his retail sales (including Edison), as many of you have noticed. With Richard’s endorsement, Mike and Linda have been working to take up his slack. The idea is for Mike and Linda to take over Richard’s previous role in the pen market in every way.

This will now include sales of the Edison Pen Production Line.

Many of you might remember that the Edison Production Line, as sold through Richard, included his thorough testing of every nib prior to shipping, or “Binderizing” at no extra cost. Mike and Linda will also offer this service with all pen sales, as well as custom grinds for a fee, if desired.

Be sure sure to head over to Mike and Linda’s site, and see what’s going on. You’ll see that in addition to now carrying Edison, they also offer custom nib grinding, pen repair, as well as vintage and modern pen sales.

Have a great day!

A Nice Visit From the Ann Arbor Pen Posse!

Posted by on Mar 31 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

Last weekend, we were able to host a visit from the Ann Arbor Pen Posse!

The reason for this post is two-fold…

1.  The visit was a ton of fun.  Hector with Inkluminati put together a wonderful blog post that is very well written, and is amazingly photographed.  It’s definitely worth sharing.

2.  A lot of people don’t realize that visits to our facility here in Ohio are welcomed by appointment.  If you belong to a pen club and would like to arrange a visit to check out how we make our pens, just reach out!

Here is the excellent blog post.

Here is the full gallery of photos.

Thanks!

Back From Vacation!

Posted by on Mar 27 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

Just a quick note to let you know that I’m back from vacation and back to work.

I had a great time checking out the Indians Spring Training!  If you are a baseball fan, you can check out my photos here.

I do have a lot of emails to get through, and I will do so today.  So if you are expecting to hear from me, you will soon.

Have a great day!

A Nice Vacation!

Posted by on Mar 18 2015

Hi Pen Fans!

Some of you might know that I’m a huge baseball fan.

I have decided to take a nice vacation this year not only to enjoy some better weather, but to see my Cleveland Indians do their Spring Training in Arizona!  Can’t wait!

So I’ll be gone from Thursday the 19th until Thursday the 26th.  If I’m slow with emails, you ‘ll know why.  I’ll return emails when I’m back next week.

Thanks!
