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

Current Inventory

Current Inventory Updated! Lots of Comets!

Hi Pen Fans!

When we introduced The Comet back in December, the response was truly unexpected! We had around 30 custom Comets inventoried when we made this announcement to be sure that our customers wouldn’t have to wait through our custom backlog to get one.

Nearly all of them sold out! So a couple of weeks ago, we began making more Comets. We now have more than 40 that are ready to ship. Of course, you can always place a custom order for any Comet in any configuration, but that will go to our custom queue which is currently about 6-7 weeks.

So in addition to our normal Current Inventory of about 350+ pens, we also have just added plenty of Comets to meet the demand that we’ve had.

If you are interested in seeing only the Comets that are currently inventoried and ready to ship, click here.

In particular, we’ve had a lot of fun making comets from craft materials coming from Jonathon Brooks and Tim McKenzie. Click here to see all Comets made from Jonathon’s materials, and here to see Comets made from Tim’s materials.
