Edison Offering Richard Binder 14k Full Flex Nibs!

Hi Pen Fans!

I'm very happy to announce a collaboration between Edison and Richard Binder.  We will now be offering fully flexible 14k nibs.

Please see the video below...

These nibs are awfully impressive.  As you can see in the video, there's little difference between the vintage flex nib and Richard's work.  Actually, Richard's nib is offering a bit more flex.

These nibs are inventoried.  Unless they sell out very fast, there should be no waiting to get these nibs on your Edison Pens.

Pricing is as follows (this is the cost for the flex alteration only...the cost of the pen is in addition to this cost).

Fine - $100
XF, XXF, XXXF - $150
XXXXF - $165 (not recommended for beginners.)

If you are not familiar with flex nibs, I would recommned visiting Richard's site to read a bit about proper care of flex nibs.

If you would like to have one of these nibs outfitted on an existing Edison Pen, or purchase the nib only, you can contact Edison or contact Richard directly to have this work done.

Let me know if there are any questions!

Italic Nibs Are Here, and LE Reminder!

Hi Pen Fans!

I'm very happy to announce that our 1.1mm and 1.5mnm Italic nibs are finally here!

These are steel nibs, and are available in the #6 size.

So this makes the Edison Nib offerings....

Steel #6 - XF, F, M, B, 1.1, 1.5.
18k #6 - XF, F, M, B
Steel #5 - XF, F, M, B, 1.5, 1.9, 2.3
18k #5 - F, M, B

For reference, the #6 nibs fit all of the standard sized pens.  The #5 nibs fit the smaller pens such as the Pearlette, Mina, and Encore.

These new italic nibs will be available on all Edison Pens.  This includes the Production Line, so you will see these #6 italic nibs being offered from our retailers as well. 

These nibs can be purchased separately and be placed in current Edison Pens.  Cost is $25.  Email me to inquire.

And remember that these new italic nibs are available on the 2013 Limited Edition Morgan.  The buying period for this pen ends on April 7th, so if you missed out on last years LE, now is your chance!  Click here for details.

Enlisting the Help of Masuyama and Minuskin!

Hi Pen Fans!

Highlights from the video.

1.  From this point forward, the Edison Pen Co will be enlisting the help of Mike Masuyama and Greg Minuskin for a portion of custom ground nibs.

2.  Mike Masuyama with Mike It Work will handle all XF and smaller custom grinds.

3.  Greg Minuskin will handle all 14k nibs altered for flex.

4.  All italic nibs (stub, cursive italic, crisp italic) will remain in-house.

5.  This should not effect delivery timelines.  Both Greg and Mike will be getting nibs to me generally faster than my current timeline for a custom pen.  And in many cases, I will inventory the nibs pre-made, just in case.

6.  The Spencer Limited Edition Pen ordering window will be open until October 19th.

7.  We hope to see you this weekend at the Michigan Pen Show!

Let me know if there are any questions!
