Hi Pen Fans!
I'm proud to announce that the Edison Pen Co is releasing a Beaumont Pneumatic Filler to the Signature Line.
This is a pretty unique filling system. They were very popular in the 20's and 30's, as well as the 50's and 60's. As long as my pen history is correct, no pen company has made pneumatic fillers on a production scale since then.
Please watch the video below for all details.

Please visit the Beaumont Pneumatic Filler Main Page for all specifications and pricing.
Please note that the sacs used in these pens are 100% silicone. This is much better than latex, which has been typical in fountain pens from the beginning until now.
From the seller of these sacs:
"100% silicone sacs will outlast conventional latex sacs several times over; unaffected by the most reactive inks. Latex sacs can release sulfur compounds as they age, which discolor plastics such as celluloid. To preserve original color, and to stand up to modern inks, 100% silicone is the best choice available"
We have almost 40 of these pens currently inventoried and ready to ship. Please visit the following link to see all Beaumont Pneumatic Fillers that are currently inventoried and ready to ship. Or, of course, you can place a custom order in whatever material you would like.
Let me know if there are any questions!
