Coincidentally, both my Glenmont red-black ebonite pen and a new Allan's journal (black, with their signature red under gilt page edging) will arrive in the mail tomorrow--with some Rouge Hematite, I'll be all set...!

Just discovered the Edison Group Buy for 2014.  Missed it, but would like to be part of this group buy for 2015.  How do I go about do this???  Actually preparing to purchase an Edison in January-February 2015.  This will be my first one.  I've looked at the Beaumont & Collier.  I am excited about being able to add a couple of Edisons to my growing collection.

Congratulations!  How about a photo (or two)?  mine is still stuck in UK Customs. :(

I'm not very good at the photo thing, but I'll try. It is a slightly darker burgundy color than it appears here but I wanted to get some sunlight on it. For some really great pictures of #1 in the acrylic, check out this post, the color is much better.

I've just had a letter from Parcelforce advising me of the charges to be paid before I can get my pen delivered. What a nasty surprise! £34.62. I was expecting a customs charge and the usual £8 handling charge, but I have never paid import VAT before. Perhaps I've just been lucky in the past, but I certainly wasn't expecting it. I'll definitely have to think carefully before buying from abroad in the future.

Well, I was "lucky" -

Had to pay only $33 taxes to the Israeli Treasury.

:wacko:

 

BUT -

WOW, what a smooth writer. it glides over the paper

Thus, the task is not so much to see what no one has seen, 

but to think what nobody has yet thought,

My acrylic Glenmont  arrived yesterday afternoon and it's gorgeous! I got number 14 of 63, with a 1.1 nib. I love the slice of acrylic which shows what the material looks like before polishing takes place, and the brass bookmark.

I was intending to put it away for Christmas, but I think it will be filled with rouge hematite and used to write my Christmas cards.

 

It worked out very expensive for me, with having to pay £34 import duty, so I probably won't be able to do it again next year.
