Well here are the pictures of my newest Edison Pen

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Now I opted for an ebonite pen. This is my first ebonite, and I am anxious to see if the reputation lives up to the hype of this material. I opted for an 18k 0.9mm Cursive Italic. It has lovely line variation. Its a tad toothy for me, but Im gonna give it a go for a week and if its bothering me, Brian stands behind his product. The section that holds that cap to the bulb filler is almost seamless to the main body. I opted for a smokey/transparent window in order so that I can see the ink level. Brian's bulb fillers hold a tremendous amount of ink. This will definitely be used for the next week straight. In that time we will get to know one another. I highly recommend Brian's products, and would encourage anyone on the fence at least sending him an email.

Typically, the cap remains the same, but the barrel gets an extra 3/8".

Thanks for posting, Isaac!

I hear people complain in other threads about huge steps from barrel to the section, but this pen has a huge step and I've never heard anybody complain. It must not be that big of a deal.

Stunning pen. Love the matte finish and fuzzy ink window.

Love the shape of this pen, and the huge ink window is very useful! Thanks for sharing!

Great pen! I normally don't like ink windows, but the translucent window is really neat. And the gold logo on the nib is a nice touch!

OoooOOOOoo! That's a beauty! I love the ink window and the black ebonite -- very sweet and sharp. Beautiful pen.

It's a fairly big deal to me. I only use my Pearls for short stretches because of the step. It's why I made sure to buy a Herald as my third Edison. Brian makes a pen for everyone. :)

Hm. I've never noticed the step in the Pearl until I looked at Isaac's pictures. It does seem large in Isaac's pen, but I just now held up my Pearl to the monitor to compare, and it seems the same, so I just wrote with it... and I've never noticed that step, and the Pearl feels comfortable in my hand.

But now I understand what people mean when they talk about the large step from barrel to section.

Every time I see a thread with pictures of some lucky person's Edison, all I can think of is the phrase, 'Pen Porn'.......... ;)

One day.
