Great review, thanks. I cant get enough of these Edison reviews as I think they're wonderful pens and plan getting one in the not to distant future.
And how can this be, because he is the Kwisatz Haderach.

Great looking pen and great looking handwriting - I know I'd love the kind of smooth, round nib that obviously made those lines.

I hate to ask, but what pen made the italic words? :mellow:
The sword is mightier than the pen. However, swords are now obsolete whereas pens are not.

Pfhorrest,

An Italic nib was used to write headings. The pen that did that is a secret. lol Hint: it was a common bird in the FPN community.

Beautiful Colour. Looks almost like the 1939 Sheaffer Blue/Black, officially Blue, 3-25 Balance colour, which rarely appears in Sheaffer posts.
I'll have to relook at the Edison site, time for another pen, I think. Jim

Oh darn, now I'm gonna have to get a Glenmont. I already have a Pearl and it's just wonderful. Thanks for the temptation...

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
