DISCLAIMER: As usual, my photos are less than stellar quality. This is a beautiful pen, and I'm sorry my photos just can't show it any justice. A note on the Edison Pen Company etching, the flash of the camera really highlighted it. I was wondering if I could get it to show at all, it is actually very, very subtle and one could easily miss it at first glance.
The typed nitty gritty:
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: WOW
FILLING SYSTEM: Cartridge/Converter
NIB: Fine, 18k Edison Pen Company nib. Tuned by Brian to be 7 of 10 on the wetness scale and to write "smooth as butter."
COST: Very reasonable for a truly custom-made pen, with attention direct from the artist himself. It went to my wants and desires, and the available upgrades made it really a pen to be enjoyed. The base model of this pen is a modest $165.
CONCLUSIONS: I've been looking at this pen for almost a year. I finally got it, and with all the extras. I'm very, very pleased. Brian was great to work with, and he went out of the way to make sure I got what I wanted, even when I had him polishing up other materials for me to look at. This pen is me, through and through. The colors are my favorite combination, and the pen feels good in my hand. Brian's pens are beautiful, they write well, and his service is prompt and impeccable.
