What is that other pen?
What other pens can you compare the herald to?
Nice hand written review. You're handwriting is really good. Nice pics.
As mention by our fellow FPN member with keen eyes, the other pen is indeed a Pelikan m200 with a BB nib.
It is difficult for me to compare it to a Montblanc 146 or 149, Sailor 1911, or Nakaya because I haven't tried those pens. The Edison Herald is the more affordable choice comparing to the retail prices of the mention pens.
However, I can compare my nib experiences. I have nibs done by Pendemonium and Richard Binder. Nibs done by Pendemonium and Richard Binder are smooth to write with. At Pendemonium, they call it a "Straight Italic." At Richard Binder, he calls it "Cursive Italic." At Edison Pens, the "Cursive Italic" has a bit of "tooth." I requested a bit of feedback on the nib because I have an EF Pelikan nib that makes scratchy sounds as I write. I thought that was a unique experience and ask Edison Pens if they can replicate that. And the answer was yes.
I'm glad you enjoyed the review. Thank you for the compliments! I certainly had a blast drafting my maiden pen review. A wonderful excuse for me to use the Rhodia paper.
PS Thanks for the kind words from my fellow FPN members regarding this Edison Herald review.
