  1. So, what do you like? I’d just like to know your opinion. I personally prefer flat ends, but tell me what you like!
  2. Pen Pit Stop : Edison Collier Burnished Gold Welcome to the Pen Pit Stop. Here you will find reviews of pens that already have some mileage on them. More specifically, these reviews are of pens that are in my personal collection, and that have been in use for at least a year. I thought it would be fun to do it this way - no new & shiny pens here, but battered vehicles that have been put to work for at least a year. Let's find out how they have withstood the ravages of time. The fountain pen that enters the pit stop today is the Edison Collier Burnished Gold. This is a produ
  3. I know this has been discussed before so I apologize if I'm beating the proverbial deceased equine. I'm still unclear of the differences between JoWo nibs used by different companies. I see where Edison says they tune the nibs in house & Goulet says they inspect theirs, but I have not used either of these nibs before. I have several Conklin & Monteverde branded JoWo nibs which seem to span from smooth as glass to scratchy like a bad Christmas sweater. Most of them fall somewhere in the middle though. So is there any real difference between the different branded JoWo nibs? Or is a
  4. I'm a college student that got hooked or you could say got hit by the curiosity with fountain pens. The last several years I've been studying and since money was tight was satisfied with writing with the pens I already obtained. I already have a thread going on over in the nibs and tines section regarding my hunt for a flexy pen, but also am thinking about a different next pen as well. I should say I haven't decided which pen I will get first and there will be a significant amount of time in-between purchases. I will list the pens I already own as a jumping off point into a discussion of so
  5. Greetings from (currently) SW Germany (along the A5, between Freiburg and the Kaiserstuhl)! Because of my job I travel moderately, and I have learned the time stuck in seat somewhere (whether the seat is moving or not) is a GREAT time to pull out a nice pen and some quality paper or notebook and write. Or sketch. Or draw. Often my origin/destination points of travel are either here in Umkirch or in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania (both places where I live part of the time), but I travel globally and I like to use the travel time and the changing scenery for inspiration to express myself with pape
  6. I'm just curious about what your favourite Edison pen is or what it would be if you had one. From all those materials and pens. I would have a Huron in Slate Lemon/Lime(Sadly, I am still a high school student, so I am saving up for university). I think that Slate Lemon/Lime is one of my favourite materials I've ever seen. Although, I have never seen a PEN made from it, just the samples. Also, if you have pictures of what it is even better and feel free to share.
  7. There are already many reviews of the Edison Glenmont pen on FPN, but after receiving and using this particular Glenmont, made from the special Jonathon Brooks’ “Modified Japanese Autumn” acrylic resin that was used in the 2019 San Francisco Pen Show LE Edison Menlo Pen, I felt I needed to make a short review about this beautiful pen and also about the fantastic customer service that Brian Gray and the Edison Pen Company provides. This pen was a custom order from Edison that I made after seeing pictures of the San Francisco Pen Show Edison LE Menlo model. Brian had announced that he had a ve
  8. Hello all, I partook in the Limited Edition Ebonite Edison Morgan (say that 5 times fast) this year and I have been enjoying the pen immensely. It's my first Ebonite pen, but certainly won't be my last. I recently splurged a little and ordered a Fine, Full-Flex nib from Richard Binder for the Morgan (after seeing Brian Gray's video, I just couldn't resist). It arrived yesterday and I've been playing with it a good bit. I've noticed that the converter is a bit... um... lacking in volume. Basically I'm having too much fun, but my fun gets cut short because I run out of ink (OH THE
  9. Hello, I saw an old post from Brian Gray saying that Edison Pens was hoping to have two 2018 LE Group Buy offers as a result of skipping 2017. Anyone know the status of these, or did I miss them already? I couldnt find anything on Google or FPN (or I just havent figured out the proper way to search on FPN yet-very likely). Thanks!
  10. Looking for my first non entry level pen with the intent to not leave my side. I work in an office with general note taking. I carry a satchel so size isn't a big issue. Then at night I do a page or so of journaling each night. I also see C/C as a benefit since I love changing colors. No B&M near by so having to wing it a little without trying. I am leaning very heavily on an Edison Collier or Premier in EF and spare 1.1 stub. Anything I should be worried about or is there something noticably better out there for the same $200 or so?
  11. I was on a business trip and ordered some penny goodness in the form of a Edison Collier Persimmon Swirl, with an 18kt B nib. I also got a sample of sheening inks. It is a beautiful writer and the nib is gushingly wet. I’ve been playing around with the different sheening inks; both Iroshizukus, J. Herbin’s Emerald of Chivoir, and the Diamine Majestic blue. Maybe I’m doing something wrong, but even with the super wet nib on Rhodia or Tomoe River paper, I only see the sheen in bright, direct sunlight. The Persimmon Swirl is beautiful, looking bright orange to a dark red, depending on the light.
  12. Hey, I thought I'd post this here because when I went looking for any information on this (admittedly very specific) topic I couldn't find anything. Anyway, I have a Jinhao 159 and an Edison Collier. The Edison had some issues with hard starts and the flow wasn't as wet as I'd like it. I tried switching it's broad nib into my Jinhao, and it worked perfectly, no issues, so I figured the problem was with the Edison's feed rather than the nib. So I looked around to see if I could switch the feed from the Jinhao into the Edison, but feed switching is apparently not a very popular topic lol. I tr
  13. A coworker came into my office yesterday. She had entered a raffle to raise money for a friend, and she'd won a custom fountain pen! Since I'm the biggest fountain pen lover in the office, she offered it to me for free. And here's what a I got: A custom pen from Mini Wood Productions (MWP). It's based on their "Füller" series. MWP is based in Conroe, Texas. Their website says that their pens aren't "kit" but rather "create one at a time on a manual lathe." What an interesting pen. The body is aluminum, but pretty thick (making for a heavy pen-- sorry that I don't have a small enough s
  14. I'll just paste my 'about me' from my profile. I'll not get on the soap box again, thanks to you all already -BIn the second half of my life, I'm using my time while retired/disabled after 23+ years as an Officer of Marines; CWO4 (Marine Gunner) and former Master Sergeant (prior to my Officer lobotomy) I stay busy when not swamped with stuff or just feeling down right horrible as a book reviewer, editor, and still continue analytical work for various people/businesses and occasionally still do consulting work for the Marine Corps and DoD ....... Advocating for Liberty and Veterans who suffe
  15. I'm thinking about buying an Edison Collier Fountain Pen (Persimmon Swirl), with a 1.1 italic stub nib, from Goulet Pens. Does anyone own, or has anyone used, one of these pens? They look great, and I like stub nibs, but I usually don't like cartridge converter pens. So, if anyone has any experience with these pens, I'd love to hear it.

    #5 Replacement Nibs

    I was looking to buy eleven number five loose nibs. Does anybody have a list of all the people who sell such nibs? Also, is there any way to get #5 JOWO nibs without the feed? Thanks, Phillieskjk
  17. Hi! Straight to the point: what pump-filler pens do you know of? I know of Edison's Pump-Filler but the price is more than what I can afford ($350 for a steel nib and $450 for the gold nib besides international shipping...) so I'm looking at a "51" Vac which is about a fifth of the price. Do you guys have any other suggestions at this lower price point? I'm also aware of the Pilot 823 and TWSBI Vac700 which have a plunger of some sort. Open to those kinds too that are not variations of a lever filler. Thanks!
  18. So, today I am going to do a review of the 2016/17 Winter Edison Nouveau Premiere in Arctic Currents Ebonite. Overview: This pen is the first ebonite body pen I have purchased and I have to say that I quite like the material. It is light in the hand and very warm to use while writing. I bought this pen because I was very drawn in by the beautiful color of the ebonite. I'm not sure if my photos will have done it justice, but it is a beautiful mix of colors. The nib and clip are done in black which matches quite well to the color of the pen. I bought this pen with the 1.1mm stub steel nib as I

    Greetings From California Usa

    Greetings fellow FP enthusiasts! I've been lurking here for a couple of months and finally made an account. About 3 months ago, I was talking to my son. He said that he had heard good things about fountain pens, and that I should try one. I logged on to the Amazon website and bought a Pilot Metropolitan (Medium). Worth a try for under 15 bucks, so why not? I liked it so much I bought some pens as gifts for my (adult) kids... Since I was buying gifts, I bought my self some good notebooks and accessories to reward myself for being such a generous dad. I liked those too so I bought some
  20. I need help deciding! I have $380-400 (Canadian, that's about $300 US) to spend on a pen. I currently own and enjoy pens like the Lamy 2000, Pilot VP, Diplomat Aero, TWSBI 580, Pilot CH92, Lamy Studio, Edison Collier (steel nib), and Faber Castell Loom. Here's my question: Would you recommend the Pilot 823 or the Edison Nouveau Premier Arctic Currents with a gold nib? I like the look of the arctic currents, but am concerned that the grip section may be a little too small. Also, any other suggestions in that price range? Thanks!
  21. Hello, All! My daughter will be 8 next month and she wants an Edison pen in Hawaiian (Unicorn Barf). She does use fountain pens and while I understand wanting a pen, I can't seem to justify a $150+ pen purchase for an 8-year old. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good, less expensive alternative? I looked at the Noodler's Konrad pens, but none of the colors were right. Thanks if advance for your help!
  22. http://i.imgur.com/wOBHQP8.jpg Edison Pens is one of the most well-known of modern American companies. The company, initially the work of penmaker Brian Gray solely, now has several employees. Together, they turn out custom pens and production pens in wild-colored acrylics and ebonite, and even celluloid, when it was available from American Art Plastics. Now, celluloid pens from Edison are made only when the rod stock is customer-supplied. I got into fountains just about two years ago, and was quite immediately taken with them. Six months or so into my fountain pen journey, I bought a cappuc
  23. I've got a couple of nice little vintage pens with flexible nibs, but I've long thought about a big, robust, modern pen with a flex nib. I mean a good one, not some cheesy something with steel or titanium sorta-flex. I know there are a few options. I have pondered. . . custom Edison with modified 14K flex nibGate City Belmont with modified 14K flex nibnew Wahl-Eversharp DECOBANDMy expectation is that the Belmont would be the least costly and not exactly elegant, but perhaps the most dependable, not having a sac or converter.

    Greetings From Germany

    Hi Folks, I'm pleased to be joining this forum, having spent some time reading posts and learning about pens I have then gone onto purchase. I'm not new to fountain pens, having used them since I was a child. I only started acquiring more pens earlier this year when I realised that Caran d'Ache had discontinued their Caribbean Sea ink. *shakes fist* I'll admit, I panicked and seriously considered dropping over 200€ on the last six bottles I could find online. Then I took a moment and thought about what else I could do with that money... Highlights of my collection are Pelikan M200, M400; E

    Hello From New York

    Hello, everyone. I'm Marcus. I am new to FPN. I have enjoyed fine writing instruments since I was in college - I'm not in my mid-thirties. I'm not an expert by any means. I'm not even a collector. I just enjoy handwriting. I have a little bit of graphomania. I really enjoy writing with fountain pens. My current inventory include Waterman Carene, Parker Sonnet, Pilot Kakuno and Hero 007. My ink of choice right now is Pilot. I am not particular about paper as long as it doesn't bleed. I don't mind writing on regular printer paper, as long as I have something behind it for the bleeding. I pref
