My first custom pen was an Edison Herald Grande, matte black acrylic with the engraved/roughed up ends.

I sold it a few years ago to fund my own pen making insanity.

 

Eventually I'll get a Menlo pump filler with matte black ebonite cap and barrel end knob, with transparent gray barrel, and matte black section.  :D

I've already talked to Brian about it too.  This one will get the engraved/roughed up ends as well.   :P

Pearl in just about any material. Far more comfortable than any pen that size should be. Also, I've had fewer skipping/dryness problems from the Pearls that I've had. Don't know why that would be though, probably just luck.

I will eventually get one made from the Black Rose Acrylic. Just deciding between if I want it in Pearl, Glenmount, or Herald.

I have smaller hands - and I like the Pearlette. But my favorite shape is the Herald. Just a classic shape. Pulling the trigger on a Menlo real soon.

I saw those at a pen show and they were stunning!

I also have a Huron bulb filler in Lavender Ebonite and a New Mexico Club pen that is based on the Pearl. All of them have fine stubs and write great.

 

Here is a review I did on the Huron:

I would say, it's my first one : a Mina in black satin finish Ebonite.

 

I love everything about that pen: the precision engineering, simple timeless elegance of the 1920s and last but not least a perfectly tuned nib.

I have a customized Herald in red/black ebonite. Nigh on perfect. The ebonite is so light & balanced I could use it all day.

Five Edisons! Collier in silver marble is coming for my birthday. I love all my Edisons but the Collier is a lovely fat pen, probably now my favourite.


Too many pens, too little time!

Glenmontfull.jpg

Glenmont in Grey Skies acrylic.  Sadly, this pen was damaged in a car accident a few years ago, but I finally ordered a replacement in Milky Way  since it looks like it replaced the Grey Skies (or is the same?), and it should be ready in a few weeks.  I've owned several Edisons, but the Glenmont fits my hand the best.  I'm tempted to get a Pearl in Fern ebonite since it looks like it'll fit my hand a bit better.  Loved my Collier in blue/black ebonite but it was a tad too big.

The only one I have (until my Noveau in green flake arrives from Goulet Pens) is my copper flake Herald.  It's my favorite, and has caught the eye of more than one coworker  :)

Beautiful green. Oh, and gold nib. If you want to, please share a writing sample.

Enjoy!
