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.
