Edison Glenmont, Broad Steel Nib
Posted 23 January 2012 - 16:08
Beautiful cream/black swirl acrylic Glenmont that I saw in Brian's current inventory photo stream. The pen isn't creamy at all, but rather this gorgeous, subtle pearl white that shades to grey & black. It's really hard to get a picture that captures the shimmer. It's translucent in places & I can just barely see the darkest parts of the converter inside. The pen is engraved with the brand & pen model on the barrel.
Specs shameless copied from Brian's Glenmont page at Edisonpen.com.
Weight w/ Cap 17g Weight w/o Cap 10g
Cap Diameter .610" Body Diameter .565"
Length Capped 5 3/4" Length Uncapped 4 7/8"
A postable pen, but I prefer to write un-posted. Balance is great in the hand. The threaded cap only takes about one turn for on/off, & it doesn't feel as "tight" as my Collier. I'm not worried that the nib would dry out, but if carrying in a shirt/pants pocket it seems more prone to coming loose than my Collier would. This is just speculation as I haven't actually tried it yet.
Cartridge/converter pen that can also be used as an eye dropper.
A #6 JoWo steel broad sporting the Edison logo & some light decorative engraving. It's a bigger nib, but it looks proportional to the pen. Brian normally sends his pens out tuned to a 7/10 wetness scale with a touch of feedback. I asked for this one to be buttery smooth, & Brian delivered big time. This nib is beautifully smooth without any hard starting. It's a wet writer, but not as juicy as my Bexley broad (an 18k nib) which gives me great variety in my pens.

I'm all about this pen! I may be flushing out some others bc they're not going to be seeing much use...

I wouldn't trade my own Glenmont bulb-filler for it, though.

Thought I'd post an update here, although this is a new pen. Unfortunately, the original pen was broken in a car accident a few years ago and I finally got around to asking Brian to make a new one back in December. The original acrylic was called "Grey Skies," but Brian's supplier/naming system has changed since this review. This pen is in "Milky Way," which looks very similar if a bit more transparent than I remember the previous pen being. Rhodium clip, cartridge convertor. My next Edison will probably be a bulb filler
The review is written on Tomoe River paper; so nice! I went with an 18k Extra Fine nib and it's wonderful to write with. Flow is a 7 out of 10 and buttery smooth. It's more firm than my Pilot fine nibs, but has the slightest bit of bounce.

Thanks for reading, all I love the size and feel of the Glenmont. I've had a Mina, Beaumont, and Collier, all of which I later sold. There's something about the Glenmont that really clicks for me. I'd like to try a Pearl, and have a bulb-filler Morgan in the works .
