Hi Pen Fans!
We are packed up and heading to DC for the Pen Show!
We’ll be bringing around 225 pens with us. This is not as much as we’d like to bring to a show like this, but considering our recent machine issues and delays, it’s not too shabby! Here’s a quick view of what our inventory will look like.
There will be plenty of Draw Fillers as well as some pretty amazing materials that we haven’t used before!
We’ll be set up from Friday morning until Sunday evening.
If you can’t make the show, I’ll be doing my best to keep updates on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts.
We hope to see you there!

Wow! Wish I could be there! Those are some good looking pens, and I’m sure the will be popular! Good Luck!
Those draw-fillers are very cool! Glad to see so much innovation in the filling system space at Edison Pens.
Though one thing I think would be just incredible for a modern pen company to bring out is a modern safety pen in the style of the old Waterman pens. With modern O-ring seals instead of cork, the pens should tolerate virtually any ink, even India ink, if cleaned regularly and the seals should last basically forever. There would be quite a bit of programming initially, I think, but once programmed CNC lathes/mills would be able to turn out the spiral cams and nib/feed holders in bulk. Dan Symonds made one a while back: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/102632-would-like-to-have-artist-fountain-pen-made/?p=1189514 So it’s definitely possible. I own a modern safety pen made by Tom Westerich but he handmakes them without any computer-aided design and charges $2,000 for one. With CNC-made internals, I think the price could come down a bit and it would be a huge hit in the $400 to $600 range, I think. Just some thoughts, Brian … I think Edison would be the perfect company to work on developing one =]
