2019 Limited Edition Group Buy! The Brockton! A New Model!

Hi Pen Fans!

It’s time for our Annual Signature Line Group Buy pen! I fully realize that this hasn’t been an annual thing the last couple of years, but it was always our intent. The last few years we have been very busy keeping up with our normal demand to do these extra projects. But if you’ve followed developments with us over the last year or so, you’ll recall that our new machinery along with some other factors have contributed to a lot of great things for us, including our productivity.

So the Group Buy Pen is back to being an annual event! For those of you who aren’t familiar with how our Group Buy Events have worked in the past, this is the only time that you will ever see any Edison Pen discounted.

For 2019, we are making a splash with the Group Buy pen by introducing a completely new model. The Brockton! Please see the video below for all details.

The 2019 LE Brockton is a Converter Filler in either Miami Nights Acrylic or Cream Soda Acrylic. Both of these pens have a Steel Black Oxide nib and a Satin Black Oxide Clip.

2019 LE Brockton in Miami Nights
2019 LE Brockton in Cream Soda

This pen is a numbered Limited Edition of 300 pens total. There will be 150 pens in Miami Nights and 150 pens in Cream Soda.

The Brockton is a relatively shorter Edison pen when capped, at a touch under 5″ inches or 125mm. However, the nib penetrates very deep into the cap, so when the cap is removed, the barrel is a surprising 4 7/8″ or 123mm. The pen is a compact package when capped, but then when the barrel is removed you quickly realize that the pen is more medium sized due to how far into the cap the barrel penetrates. The cap also posts very secure, making the posted length 6 1/8″ or 155mm. Please see the video above for all specifications as well as a comparison to other Edison models.

2019 LE Brockton in Cream Soda

These pens are available with Steel nibs only in EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm italic or 1.5mm italic.

The price for this pen is $199, normally $275.

Engravings are subtle, not visually “loud”.

Please note that the Brockton will now be a regular offering within our Signature Line and that we can take custom orders for this pen in any material, clipless, roll stops, or other custom options such as a Draw Filler. But of course, this would be at the higher price. So the nature of this Group Buy allows us to offer a significant discount.

Please use the buttons below to purchase these pens. You will be directed to a secure site for checkout.

Limited Edition Group Buy Will be After DC!

Hi Pen Fans.

Just a quick note to make everyone aware that we will need to delay the 2014 LE Group Buy. My apologies!

We underestimated what we could accomplish post-vacation and pre-DC Pen Show.

We are currently sandwiched in between all of the catch up work that has to happen after our vacation, and all of the prep-work that goes into the DC Pen Show.

So the 2014 LE Group Buy will be announced after the DC Pen Show, which is the week of the 11th.

Stay tuned!

Edison Donating a Pen to Benefit Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda Victims

Hi Pen Fans!

I’ve been following a lot of the terrible events in the Phillipines lately, and I was very moved by a gesture made by Leigh Reyes, who is a fountain pen fanatic, and resident of the Phillipines.

First off, Leigh is fine, as is her family and friends, but we can’t say the same for a lot of others in her homeland.

Leigh is a fountain pen collector, and a pretty amazing artist!  I highly recommend checking our her blog, and well as some of her truly amazing art that she does with fountain pens.  Some great examples of her work are below…

Keeping the Art of Handwriting Alive

Strange Overtones – A Calligraphic Tribute

Writing on Water

I saw Leigh’s blog post this weekend where she is announcing that she is taking some of her nicer pens, and auctioning them to benefit Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda victims.  The proceeds of these auctions will go directly to the Phillipine Red Cross.

You can see her blog post with the pens that she is auctioning here.

We at Edison decided that participating in this benefit would be a good idea, so we are donating a Menlo Pump Filler in Striated Blue/Gold with a steel nib of the recipient’s choice valued at $350 for Leigh to include in her auction.  Pics are below.

So please go visit Leigh’s page where the auction is being hosted, and see if there are any pens over there that appeal to you (there really are some nice pens that she’s parting with!).  Right now, the Edison Menlo is set at $89 with no reserve!

I’ll quote Leigh directly from an email that she sent me earlier this evening… "Today’s headline in the Inquirer says ‘Millions still hungry’ and the Red Cross is in the best position to help."

Please consider bidding to benefit the typhoon victims!

Thanks!

2013 Limited Edition Morgan – an Acrylic Poll, and Then We are Ready!

Hi Pen Fans.

The results of the materials poll yielded Briar Swirl as the clear ebonite winner, so Briar Swirl will be the ebonite material for the 2013 LE Morgan.

However, the acrylic choice is not clear.  The poll required that people vote for both materials, which led to inaccurate acrylic results.  Besides, right now, there’s a dead tie.

So we are going to do a quick poll just for the acrylics.  This poll will close on Thursday, 9:00 am EST.

Then we’ll go to a purchasing period, then start manufacturing.

So if you plan on participating in the 2013 LE Morgan, please visit this link to cast your vote for the acrylic.

Thanks!
