Very nice looking pen Ivan. I like that B nib.

Thank you Uncle Red. :)

One thing that was brought up at another forum is the inconsistent line at the beginning of the review. I need to explain. Unfortunately, I had to leave my backpack in the trunk of my car is the 100F degree heat. That must have evaporated some of the ink in the nib. It cleared up after a few lines as you can see.

I don't normally leave my pens in the car. Unfortunately, it was unavoidable at the time.

Sweet pen! I have a LE Nouveau Premiere (#1!) in the same material, and it's wonderful. I wish I were hip to the B&B group buy before it went off, because I would have loved a Herald Grande. I'm saving for a custom one sometime sooner rather than later. :)

This is certainly a classic photo!

Nice review Ivan of an excellent pen. I love the subtleties of the blue swirl ebonite and it sounds like the pen writes as good as it looks. Congrats on a great pen, and thanks for sharing it with us.

fourseamer, that LE Nouveau Premiere was my first run in with the material and I regretted not being able to get that one. This pen made up for it. :)

dcpritch, thank you. I think the picture does the material no justice. It is one that has to be seen in RL to appreciate it fully. :)

Wow!!! I had Brian make me a Pen in the same material but I was disappointed that the blue wasn't as vibrant as yours and other pens in that material I had seen. Snazzy Pen.

45/63 saying hi!

Nice review. This is my first Edison, as well. I opted for the medium nib, and it looks to have the same amount of wetness. It's a lovely pen and I like the B&B angle... but the size is just SO BIG. I tend to like pens in the Aurora Optima/Lamy 2000/Pelikan M605/Lamy Safari range. The B&B LE is well balanced, though, so that makes the size manageable. I'm going to have to use it a bit longer to see if it will stick around.

Wow, that does look really muted. :(

It is really big and like you say, the weight makes up for it in a well balanced pen.
