Today the mail brought me my very first Edison pen--a Nouveau Premier in the Black Ice pattern.  It's so pretty!


It comes with a converter, but it's alleged that it can be used as an eyedropper.  Has anyone done this?  Does it have the usual eyedropper blobbing problems?  I'm usually a converter-user, but the idea of filling this baby with my MB Dandy Turquoise is strangely compelling.

I haven't done it with a Premier, but I have with a Collier.  As long as there's silicone grease on the threads of the section as well as the nib unit (it unscrews) it should be fine!  I've had mine filled with Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun and it's worked well.  Even when I'm down to less than 1mL I haven't had any drops blobbing out.

The feeds on Edison pens are pretty nice. They greatly reduce/eliminate many of the traditional eye dropper blobbing issues.
