HOLIDAY LIMITED EDITION MINA IN DIAMONDCAST!

Hi Pen Fans!

A couple of months ago, we were excited to introduce a Limited Edition Collier, which was our first LE pen made from Tim McKenzie’s DiamondCast™. At that time, we said that the Collier wouldn’t be the last time that we would use Tim’s materials in a Limited Edition pen, and we meant it!

We are happy to announce a Limited Edition Extended Mina with a Holiday theme, and just in time!

The more that we’ve been using “craft” materials like Tim’s, the more we fall in love with them. We are very happy with all qualities of these materials.

We also feel that it’s important for us to support fellow small US-based businesses like Tim’s. Tim’s materials in my opinion are better and more unique than overseas large-scale acrylic manufactures for many of the same reasons that Edison Pens are unique. Smaller scale production allow both Tim and Edison to give special attention to details that larger scale manufacturers cannot always take the time to deal with. We feel that it’s fantastic for a craft US-based penmaker to team up with a craft US-based material maker.

These materials are each a custom brew that we had Tim create specifically for this Holiday edition. We are calling them “Poinsettia” and “Alpine Green”. Both of them have nice and subtle silver additives (in addition to the diamond dust) to contrast the Holiday themed colors.

THIS EDITION WILL BE LIMITED TO ONLY 50 PENS FROM EACH MATERIAL, FOR A TOTAL OF 100.

With these pens, we decided not to do any special engraving on them. It’s always been our opinion that the Mina is such a nice minimal shape that it would be a shame to interrupt the shape with an engraving.

Pricing for these pens are $199 with a Steel nib. So you know, our pricing for a custom Signature Line version of the Extended Mina made from Tim’s materials would normally be $240 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 details.

THESE PENS HAVE ALL OF THEIR NIBS CAREFULLY TUNED AND ARE READY TO SHIP IMMEDIATELY.

If any one has any questions, please reach out!

2020 Limited Edition Collier in DiamondCast™!

Hi Pen Fans!

We are all set with a pretty exciting Limited Edition pen made from Tim McKenzie’s DiamondCast™! This will be our first Limited Edition pen made from Tim’s material, although we already have plans for more!

We’ve been exploring more and more with “craft” materials for over a year now, and honestly we should have been using these a long time ago! 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.

We also feel that it’s important for us to support fellow small US-based businesses like Tim’s. Tim’s materials in my opinion are better and more unique than overseas large-scale acrylic manufactures for many of the same reasons that Edison Pens are unique. Smaller scale production allow both Tim and Edison to give special attention to details that larger scale manufacturers cannot always take the time to deal with. We feel that it’s fantastic for a craft US-based penmaker to team up with a craft US-based material maker.

So our Limited Edition Collier is made from two of Tim’s DiamondCast™ materials. “Metallurgy” and “Smoke on the Water”. Full resolution versions of these images can be seen here.

LE Collier in DiamondCast™ Metallurgy
LE Collier in DiamondCast™ Smoke on the Water

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

LE Collier in DiamondCast™ Metallurgy
LE Collier in DiamondCast™ Smoke on the Water

The edition is numbered from 1 to 50 in each material.

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 or $325 with an 18k nib. So you know, our pricing for a custom Signature Line version of the Collier made from Tim’s materials would normally be $290 steel, or $390 18k. 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 details.

If anyone has any questions, please reach out!

Production Line Pearlette on the Way Out! Will be Discounted!

Hi Pen Fans!

It was about 2 months ago when we announced that the Menlo was coming to the Production Line and that the Pearlette was being phased out. We wanted to give our customers plenty of warning so that everyone that wanted a Production Line Pearlette would have a chance to pick one up before they are all gone.

As of yesterday, we have ceased manufacture of the Production Line Pearlette. Please note, however that we have not discontinued the Signature Line version of the Pearlette. So we can still make custom Pearlettes, but remember that the price of a custom Pearlette is higher than the Production Line version.

We still have a small amount of Production Line Pearlettes inventoried to ship to our retailers. But once those have been shipped, no more will leave our facility, and whatever our retailers have stocked will be the last of the Production Line Pearlette.

In the interest of making a clean transition and also for ease of our retailer inventory, we have lifted our normal fixed retail pricing and are allowing our retailers to discount the Pearlette.

This is the first time in our history that we’ve ever allowed an Edison Production Line pen to be discounted. There are no plans in the future to do this again. So if you’ve ever considered picking up a Pearlette, now is the time!

Again, this discontinuation is of the Production Line version of the Pearlette only. You can still order custom Signature Line versions directly from Edison.

CLICK HERE to see all of the retailers that are carrying this pen.

If anyone has any questions, just reach out!

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 Miami Nights
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.

THIS EDITION IS SOLD OUT

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!
