Hi Pen Fans!
We're back from LA and quite exhausted! We'll take today and probably tomorrow off, but I will do my best to catch up on some emails today.
In the meantime, I will share some of my photos from the show. Unfortuntately, we were packed so full of pens, that we didn't have any room in our luggage for my good camera! So here's some iPhone photos....and also not very many! The LA Show was so busy this year that I really didn't have much time to get my usual number or photos.

Hi Pen Fans!
We will be leaving for the LA Pen Show soon. If I'm slow with emails this weekend, you'll know why.
Below is a video showing all of the pens that we'll be bringing with us.
The response to our Pneumatic Filling Beaumont has been amazing in the last couple of months. We've been real busy making those pens in preparation for this show. Currently, we have almost 80 Pneumatic Beaumont pens ready to sell!
If you can't make the LA Pen Show, you can see the gallery of all Current Inventory here. Any of these pens are availalbe whether or not you are attending the show.
They've been around a relatively short time period, but in that time period, they have become (in my opinion) the best Fountain Pen Blog out there. Awesome Reviews, Inkcyclopedia, Podcasts, Fountain Pen TV, and Pen Show Coverage only scratches the surface of the features and content over there.
If you don't already, I recommend adding them to your blog reader, iTunes podcasts, or simply bookmark them (and I usually don't go out of my way to promote any pen blogs).
So when the "Geeks" asked me to donate a pen for their February Giveaway, I was more than happy to oblige!
Please visit this link to check out all the details.....but essentially, they will have a write-in giveaway that has a deadline of February 28th.
And the lucky winner will receive any Beaumont Pneumatic that is Currently Inventoried at the time of the drawing.

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.
Highlights from the video....
00:17 - Pen Announcement, General Description
04:10 - What is a Pneumatic Filler? How Does it Work?
07:07 - Why a Pneumatic Filler? What are the Advantages?
10:12 - How to Fill
13:52 - Maintenance
16:51 - 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.

Hi Pen Fans!
Due to a lot of emails from clients, we are going to extended the buying period for the Limited Editon Glenmont Bulb Filler another week. The buying period will now end on the 14th.
We had a lot of feedback from people who really wanted to own the pen, but the timing of this buying period being around the Holidays was not best. We listened, and decided to allow another week for the people who voiced this issue.
Remember that this is the first Limited Edition Bulb Filler that we've offered, and due to the volume of sales, it's also the first time that a bulb filler has been offered at a discount from our retail prices.
