Ohio Pen Show! With Collier Grande Exclusive!

Hi Pen Fans!

We’ll be attending the Ohio Pen Show this weekend! This is our first Ohio show in three years (and only our 2nd show since early 2020) due to Covid. We are truly looking forward to seeing our friends and customers again!

We will be bringing a Limited Edition pen. It is a Collier Grande in Jonathon Brooks Galaxy Prime. This pen sports our new and huge #8 nib. This LE pen is exclusive to attendees of the Ohio Pen Show.

We were very excited to see how these turned out, as Galaxy Prime is quite stunning on a larger pen such as the Collier Grande. Specifications of the pen can be found here.

The edition will be limited to 15 pens. At past pen shows, our LE exclusives have sold pretty fast. Not everyone can attend each day of the show, and many cannot get off work to attend Friday. For this reason, we will limit our Friday sales of this LE to 10 pens only, and our Saturday sales to 5 pens. It will be first come, first served each day.

The price for this LE pen will be $300 with a Steel nib in Fine, Medium, or Broad. If you purchased a similar custom pen, it would normally be $345. We are able to lower the price a bit since we made these pens assembly-line style.

Outside of this Limited Edition pen, of course we’ll be bringing lots and lots of our normal inventory. We have been very busy making inventory specifically for this show. In fact, we’ll be bringing a pen show record 400+ pens!

So as of publishing this post, our Current Inventory Galleries have been updated with lots of new pens that will be available at the show. Any pens that don’t sell at the show will be available when we return. Feel free to email me with an inquiry if something appeals.

We will also have tester pens of all of our models available,  including versions of our new #8 nibs as well as our brand new #6 Steel Flex Nibs.

To get a sneak peek at the pens we’re bringing, please take a look at our Current Inventory Gallery.

We hope to see you this weekend!

2022 LE Comet in Brooks Cool Tone Primary Manipulation and Calico Koi!

Hi Pen Fans!

Materials coming from our good friend Jonathon Brooks are always in high demand! It seems that every time we place a sizable order with Jonathon, our inventory of said materials are very quickly spoken for by custom orders.

For this reason, the largest Limited Edition that we’ve made from Jonathon’s materials has only been 35 pens until now. Most of our limited edition pens from Jonathon’s materials are even smaller editions of 10-15 pieces that are exclusive to the pen shows.

Not too long ago, we placed a larger order from Jonathon and we purposely stashed these amazing materials to be sure that it remained in our inventory for a larger and very special Limited Edition!

So this is the first Limited Edition from Jonathon’s materials that we’ve been able to do that exceeds 35 pens. This Limited Edition will be 100 PENS (50 of each material)!

So we are super proud to announce this Limited Edition Comet made from Jonathon’s Cool Tone Primary Manipulation and Calico Koi!

THE EDITION IS NUMBERED FROM 1 TO 50 IN EACH MATERIAL FOR A TOTAL OF 100 PENS

Cool Tone Primary Manipulation
Calico Koi

THESE PENS ARE CONVERTER FILLERS

ALL NIBS HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY TUNED AND ARE READY TO SHIP IMMEDIATELY.

Cool Tone Primary Manipulation version has a complimentary finial made from a translucent red, while the Calico Koi has a nice translucent amber/orange finial.

These pens are available with Steel nibs only.

Also, we can offer these pens with our new Steel Flex Nibs.

Tip sizes can be EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm, 1.5mm, Flex EF, and Flex F.

PLEASE NOTE – if you prefer to have a Steel Flex Nib equipped on one of these pens, please remember that we have these flex nibs in Polished (silver tone) versions only. So the Polished (silver tone) flex nib will match the Silver-tone clip on the Cool Tone Primary Manipulation version, but it will not match the Gold-tone clip on the Calico Koi version.

The price for these pens are $225.

So you know, our pricing for a custom Signature Line version of a Comet made from Jonathon’s materials would normally be $295 with a Steel nib. But since these pens are made assembly-line style in larger batches rather than one at a time, we can offer this discount while still attending to the same fine details.

New Model to the Production Line! The Comet!

Hi Pen Fans!

It was about a year ago that we introduced The Comet to our Signature Line. Since then, it has been our best selling model. Special thanks to our employee Jake, as this pen was entirely his design.

We have had a lot of requests to introduce this pen to our Production Line, and we agree that this is a good idea. (to understand the difference between the Signature Line and Production Line, click here)

We have chosen three materials that we’ve had in mind for the Production Line for a good while. The Comet seemed like a great way to introduce them.

The Production Line Comet will come in Brandywine, Sea Spray, and Cumberland.

BrandywineSea SprayCumberland

The Comet is a design that uses the finial as the largest diameter, tapering from this point all the way to the end of the barrel. The finial has been made from a translucent material that represents a comet. The rest of the pen tapers to the end of the barrel, representing the comet’s tail.

To see how The Comet compares to our other models, click the image above.

The cap posts deep and secure.

Pricing for this pen will be the same as all of our other Production Line Pens. $169 with a Steel nib or $299 with an 18k nib.

For those that would like a totally custom version of The Comet, we are still going to be offering this pen within our Signature Line.

The Production Line version of the comet is now available from our retailers. Please click here to see Edison retailers that carry our Production Line.

Please reach out with any questions!

2022 LE Glenmont in McKenzie DiamondCast!

Hi Pen Fans!

We are excited to announce a new Limited Edition Glenmont made from Tim McKenzie’s DiamondCast!  We’ve done a few other LE pens from Tim’s materials in the past, and these never disappoint!

This Limited Edition Glenmont is made from two of Tim’s DiamondCast™ materials. “Oil Slick” and “Silver Lake”.

2022 LE Glenmont in Oil Slick and Silver Lake

DiamondCast is created with real gem-quality diamonds that are ethically sourced as reclaimed chips, directly from diamond cutters. We are very happy with all qualities of these materials. As opposed to our normal acrylics, they really open up some amazing creative iterations that otherwise aren’t always possible coming from our overseas large-scale acrylic manufacturers.

2022 LE Glenmont in Oil Slick
2022 LE Glenmont in Silver Lake

This edition will be limited to only 50 pens from each material, for a total of 100 pieces.

2022 LE Glenmont in Oil Slick
2022 LE Glenmont in Silver Lake

The edition is numbered from 1 to 50 in each material. They are converter fillers.

These pens have all of their nibs carefully tuned and are ready to ship immediately.

Pricing for these pens are $225 with a Steel nib. So you know, our pricing for a custom Signature Line version of the Glenmont made from Tim’s materials would normally be $295 with a Steel nib. But since these pens are made assembly-line style in batches rather than one at a time, we can offer this discount while still attending to the same fine detail.

The Collier Grande! With a #8 Nib!

Hi Pen Fans!

I am so excited to announce a new pen to the Signature Line. The Collier Grande, which uses a whopping #8 sized nib!

Please see the video below for full details…

You can probably figure out that this pen is essentially a larger version of our already very popular Collier.

Below are photos showing the normal Collier next to the Collier Grande.

But the real hallmark to this new pen is a huge #8 nib!

These nibs are Steel only and available in F, M, and B.

The price for this pen is $325.

Click here to see plenty of these pens that are currently inventoried and ready to ship.

Complete details are within the video above, but please reach out with an questions.

New Material to the Production Line Collier! Azure Skies!

Hi Pen Fans!

I am very happy to announce that we have refreshed the Production Line Collier with a new material – Azure Skies!

Many of you will recognize this material, as this was previously used in the Production Line version of the Pearlette. Azure Skies was by far the most popular version of the Pearlette before we discontinued it from the Production Line. We’ve had more than just a few requests to bring back this material, and we’ve made lots of custom pens from this material as many people were disappointed to see it leave the Production Line.

I have always personally felt that maybe this material was not an optimal choice for a smaller pen like the Pearlette. The patterns of pearlization and chatoyance (my favorite word) create pretty large swaths, and sometimes I think that the full potential of a material like this can be lost in a smaller pen design. But a large design like the Collier shows off the amazing pattern and depth much better, in my opinion.

This material is a very nicely saturated blue with some hints of aqua/teal. Those of your who might already own this material in a Pearlette will certainly appreciate the amazing chatoyance that this material displays. So expect these photos to not do the pen total justice, honestly. When you see this pen live and rotate it in the light, you’ll see all of that amazing depth that can’t always be captured accurately in a photo.

So Azure Skies is the new material for the Collier, and this means that Burnished Gold will be discontinued. We still have a handful of Burnished Gold Colliers inventoried and ready to ship to our retailers. Once our retailers are out of stock, the Collier in Burnished Gold will be gone. So if you’ve been on the fence about a Collier in Burnished Gold, now is the time!

So the new lineup of Colliers is as shown in the photo below.

Azure Skies, Rock Candy, Antique Marble, Nighthawk, Persimmon Swirl

All of these Colliers are part of our Production Line, so you will not buy these directly from Edison, but through any of our retailers listed here.

I am personally very excited to add Azure Skies to the Collier lineup! As mentioned, I really think that a material with wide patterns and depth like this is showcased much better on larger pens!

Please reach out with an questions!

The ‘Pen-Show-LE-That-Never-Was!’ 2022 LE Comet in Brooks Deep Space!

Hi Pen Fans!

We never would have predicted this a couple of years ago, but due to COVID, we haven’t attended a pen show since March 2020! Sheesh!

At each major pen show, we typically bring a small Limited Edition pen that is exclusive to that particular show. We keep these editions smaller, make it very special, and only attendees of that pen show can purchase that particular pen.

Of course, we need to plan these LE pens well in advance. So in early 2020, we contacted Jonathon Brooks requesting that he put together another fantastic material created specifically for Edison. Well, the material arrived around the same time that Covid arrived!

So this exclusive material has been sitting on our shelves waiting for a fun project for about 2 years now! After missing our friends at pen shows and our fans also missing out on these smaller Limited Editions, we decided to just make a pen from this material now, albeit a smaller edition.

This is a Comet made from a material that Jonathon Brooks crafted specifically for us. We felt that calling it Deep Space was quite apropos for the Comet!

Normally when we do pens with exclusive materials, we buy enough so that we have extra to also make custom pens for those interested. However, we don’t have any more of this. So if you like this Deep Space material, this pen will be your only option to acquire it.

The material is a very nice deep blue with some very subtle purple highlights.

Actually, this composition and color tone definitely reminds me of vintage Cobalt that was used extensively in original Sheaffer Balance II’s. This does have a tighter pattern (which I like better), and also some excellent and subtle purple highlights.

Going with the style of the Comet (our newest model), we made the finial from Solid Blue Translucent Acrylic.

Since this material was intended as a smaller LE for a pen show, we never ordered a lot of the material compared to our normal LE pens. Therefore….

…this pen is limited to only 35 pieces

The pen will come with a Steel Nib in your choice of EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm, and 1.5mm.

The price is $245. If this same pen were ordered as a custom Signature Line pen, the normal price would be $295.

The Edition is Sold Out

New Model to the Signature Line! The Comet!

Hi Pen Fans!

I’m very happy to announce that we have a new model coming to the Signature Line. The Comet!

Our employee Jake designed this pen entirely with very little help from me, so that makes us extra proud!

Please see the video below for all details, but I will also give a quick summarization.

The Comet is a design the uses the finial as the largest diameter, tapering from this point all the way to the end of the barrel.

The majority of the Comet designs that we have created for our inventory have an accented finial from a complementary material. The name comes from the idea of a comet flying through space. The accented finial represents the comet, and the rest of the pen represents the tail.

Comet in Brooks Combustion with Fire Opal Finial

The accented finial is optional, as you can see in the photo below…

 

Dimensions….
The pen looks very sleek capped….

…and retains this sleekness when posted. The cap posts deep and secure…

At the time of publishing this announcement, we have more than 30 Comets that are currently inventoried and ready to ship. You can watch the slide show below to see all Comets or visit our Current Inventory Gallery that shows all Comets that are ready to ship.

Then of course, we can always take a custom order for any combination of materials that you feel works for you.

The price of this pen will be in the same range as the rest of our Signature Line standard offerings. $275 with a Steel nib or $375 with an 18k nib.

That’s all of the necessary details that I can think of! If you like this design, please send along your congrats to Jake! We’re very proud that he took this idea all the way from a concept to a successful design! It’s not an easy task!

Please reach out with any questions.

Limited Edition Black Knight Collier! A Nice Mistake!

Hi Pen Fans!

I’m happy to announce that we are now offering a new Limited Edition Signature Line Collier in a material that has been a personal favorite of mine for a while now.

This material is what we’ve called Cumberland Acrylic previously. In the past, we’ve been able to acquire this in only smaller quantities for individual custom pens. We’ve never had enough for a sizable run until now.

This edition is limited to only 75 pieces.

The nib and clip have a black oxide treatment to compliment the darker tones in the acrylic.

This Cumberland acrylic is a material that was actually a mistake from the manufacturer! The colors and swirls that you see in these photos were not intended! I think that they were looking to get rid of their mistake, so they sent us a few meters to check out at no charge. We loved it so much that we instantly bought up the rest of the “mistake”!

This initial purchase gave us decent quantities for some custom individual pens, but about 6 months ago we were getting low on it. We did not want to say goodbye to the material, so we contacted the manufacturer to see if they could replicate the “mistake” on a larger scale and they were able to do so with the first try!

This pen will be available with Steel Black Oxide nibs in EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm italic, and 1.5mm italic. It is a converter filler. For all specifications on the Collier, please see here.

The price for this pen will be $225. The normal retail price for a Signature Line Collier with a Steel Nib is $275. Since these pens were made “assembly-line” style, we can manufacture them faster with the same quality. This allows us to bring the price down significantly compared to a fully custom version.

All of these pens are in stock and ready to ship immediately! Please let me know of any questions.

Brian at Edison

The Edition is Sold Out

PS – when were looking for a clever name for this pen, immediately the dark trim and color scheme made us think of the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail! At first, we dismissed this idea. But as we searched for a different name, we just couldn’t get this out of our heads.

So what the heck! ’tis but a scratch!
