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!

Hi Pen Fans!

I’ll include photos of some of the offerings, but the entire process will be handled over at the Fountain Pen Network.  You can see all details over there.

Beaumont Pneumatic Giveaway!

Hi Pen Fans!

In the past, I’ve never been shy about my praise for the Fountain Pen Geeks.

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.

Thanks!

Edison Pen Giveaway!

Hi Pen Fans!

Those of you who have seen some of my appearances on the FPGeeks Radio Show will already know that I’m a huge fan of Dan and Eric, and everything that they do for the fountain pen community.

You can read a previous blog post here singing the praises for all things FPGeek!  Bottom line, if you haven’t checked them out, be sure to.  They have one of the most informational and entertaining sites devoted to fountain pens, no doubt.

So when they asked me to donate an Edison Pen for a giveaway, how could I resist!

Click Here to Enter in the FPGeeks Edison Pen Giveaway!

Thanks Dan and Eric!

Group Buy(s)?

Hi Pen Fans!

Well, the LE Pearl Group buy has concluded on our end.  The LE Pearls are waiting on FedEx to arrive today to pick them up.  If you participated in this group buy, you can expect your pen to arrive hopefully this week!

If you’d like to see the entire progression of this project, click here.

Here are all the LE Pearls prior to shipping….

But did someone say Group Buys?

Yep, there is another LE Group Buy going on right now!

The nice guys over at Badger and Blade have commissioned a Limited Edition Herald Grande.

If you are not familiar, Badger and Blade is a forum dedicated to wet-shaving.  Wet-shaving and fountain pens seem to go hand in hand (those guys certainly have me hooked on wetshaving!). 

Badger and Blade does have their own forum dedicated to Fountain Pens called The Nib.  This forum is easily the second largest fountain pen forum on the net, so be sure to check it out.  It’s a great resource, and a wonderful forum.  I swear that Badger and Blade is one forum in particular that is completely devoid of trolls and nastiness.  I have never seen such a friendly bunch of people congregate on the net!

You don’t need to be a wetshaver to participate in The Nib or The Herald Grande LE, so be sure to head over there and have a look around.  If you happen to get hooked on wetshaving like I did by heading over there, then no harm!

The LE Herald Grande will be in Blue/Black Swirl Ebonite, and will be priced at $175.  That’s $100 less than retail.  The buying period will conclude on Wednesday of this week, so there’s only a couple of days left.

Click Here to see details if you are interested in participating in this group buy.

Thanks!
