Hi Pen Fans!
I'm proud to announce that the Edison Beaumont has been named Goldspot Luxury Gifts Pen of the Year, 2012!
Some of you may be confused by this, as Goldspot announced this honor to another pen earlier this week.
Well, it turns out that Goldspot uncovered irrefutable evidence showing that the vote was hacked in the last 2-3 hours. The Beaumont was ahead by a minimum of 6% the entire voting period, and then in the last couple hours, another pen suddenly surged ahead to win by 4%.
Well, it turns out that the vote was hacked. If you'd like to read Goldspot's statement, it is here.
I had no idea that the pen community could be so scandalous!
Regardless, we'd like to thank everyone who voted (legitimately!)
So in the last two years, the Huron was nominated for a Pen World Reader's Choice Award, the Collier won Goldspot's Pen of the Year 2011, and then the Beaumont just won Goldspot's Pen of the year 2012! That's two years running for Edison in the Goldspot polls!
Again, thanks to everyone for voting. Next week when we take a break, we'll have one more item to be thankful for!
