Hi Pen Fans!

We are very happy to announce a new material that is is now available in the Production Line Collier!

This new material will be called Blue Steel Acrylic.  It's a very nice deep blue with lots of depth, and a rather subtle swirl.


Since this pen is part of the Production Line, remember that Edison will not sell this pen direct.  The retailers that carry the Production Line will be selling this pen.  You can find these retailers here.  All retailers have placed their orders for this pen, so they all should be ready to ship!

So this makes 4 nice materials that can be had in the Production Line Collier!

By the way.....do you notice something interesting when you look at the photo above? If you look closely at the Antique Marble Collier on the right, you'll notice that the color of the Antique Marble is a little darker.

Some of you might remember when we made an announcement about 2 years ago regarding a slight color change to the Collier.   Back then, the manufacturer that we were getting the Antique Marble from changed the color to be just a little bit lighter.  Well, we have good news!  The original darker amber color is now back!  I personally like this darker color a lot more, and I think that most of our fans agree.

So as of now, the Blue Steel and original Antique Marble materials are available in the Collier!

That's good news.. I`ve been coming back to writingdesk in UK to ponder the choices of your production line pens - this may be the end of my undecisiveness. :)

Above all shadows rides the Sun
And Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
Nor bid the Stars farewell.

Just had an email from The Writing Desk about this pen.  I'd been hoping for a new colour Edison Collier and the blue looks very nice, if not as spectacular as the Persimmon Swirl I already have. This will almost certainly be my next pen purchase.

Now - which nib to choose? :unsure:

Whatever is true,whatever is noble,whatever is right,whatever is pure,whatever is lovely,whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

Fine looking material!  Any thoughts about introducing it into your other production models (Herald, Hudson, etc.)?

Wonderful new addition to the Colliers!!!  Also, I totally agree, the darker antique marble is the way to go.

Ahhhh, and here I was proud of myself because I had convinced myself that I don't need a Collier, but the Blue Steel Acrylic crushed my resistance.  'Tis a happy day :-)

We will probably never duplicate Production Line Materials across different Production models.  But if you wanted to order a Herald or Hudson made from Blue Steel, you can do so by ordering direct from us.  But of course, since this would be a custom pen, it would be at the Signature Line price, not Production Line. 





    Say that again, I have a pen here somewhere...
