Tracking number here too! Yeeeha! bunny01.gif

 

 

Edison Pearl LEE = $190.00

 

The Goulet Pen Companies customer service = priceless. :)

Need a pen repaired or a nib re-ground? I'd love to help you out.

I too received a tracking number :thumbup:

 

I am happily surprised and pleased. I in no way expected to have the pens ship out this quickly.

 

I'd write yet another glowing review of how amazing the Goulet Pen Company is and how their customer service is unparalleled, making mention of their hard work and diligence to do all they can to serve their customers and exceed their expectations... but I might start sounding like a Goulet Groupie, so instead, I'll just say...

 

Cool. Thanks. Looking forward to getting my LEA and LEE

Oh, the fates. I'm in Richmond for a medical appointment tomorrow and put in a small order of random stuff (Kaweco clip, Banditapple lined paper, two converters, and two ink bottles) for pick up. I included in my instructions that if the pens came in today and if it wasn't a bother I'd also be happy to pick up my Edison. While I will have no complaints if there is something inconvenient about that arrangement and mine comes by mail, I hold out hope that my Edison may just be waiting for me in the morning. :)

I saw the tracking number earlier and squealed! The anticipation of this coming in this week is killing me!!!

Tracking number? I don't got no tracking number. I don't gotta show you no stinkin'....

 

Um, excuse me. I'm still awaiting my tracking number. No issues here, I'm okay with whenever it happens.

 

Being in the wilds of the Pacific NW, I'm sure I'll be one of the last to receive the pen, not due to anything but the fact that it's making its way here from Virginia. Until then, I'll live vicariously through you all.

I think I was the last person to place an order and I'm expecting to be last to get shipped, but it sounds like they'll all be out by tomorrow and we can all expect to see our pens no later than the end of the week.

I got an e-mail from the Goulets with a tracking number, and the USPS says expected delivery is Friday!

 

I am very excited and have the greatest appreciation for the Gray-Goulet team's efficiency and service. :clap1:

 

You guys should start an airline!

We have it all ready to go for you. Looking forward to meeting you in person!

And now I play the Canadian Customs waiting game <twiddles thumbs> - guess it gives me longer to ponder the first ink for it :)

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
