New Kaco Edge


Paganini

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the NEW Kaco Edge? They seem to come in different colors now. I've been holding off on getting one because of all the cap cracking problems. I wonder if these (now colorful) ones are the pens I've been waiting for.

If they resolved the cracking, the clip is an easy fix that takes only 5 or 10 minutes with some sandpaper and tape to completely fix.

 

I've posted a tutorial on how to fix the clip to where it works brilliantly.

The clip is still the previous horrendous design (shudder)

If I refer to it as a rollstop, then it seems perfectly functional. Haha!

 

I used to be very particular with clip function so I get it. Ever since I switched to using a pen sleeve, I haven't used a clip since.

 

As far as the cap cracking issue... How many examples would need to not crack and for how long before I had confidence to purchase the pen? I don't expect to regain confidence in this model...

Two of my three original black ones have not cracked.

all 4 of mine had not crack , one did fall off ( well fly off ) the table courtesy of my cat a number of times , other than some nicks and scratches , nothing else. One do go into daily EDC rotation a couple of times and all the abuse, the other 2 sit on the desk tray .. just check no sign of any crack , late batches of the Edge should already had the renewed tooling / mold that's to fix the issue. I had no idea what's different since all mine are old batches

Where are these for sale? I've checked ebay uk and .com, Etsy and aliexpress with no luck - e.g. "Bobby New Lauch (sic) Kaco EDGE" is just showing black versions.

 

Despite having cracked caps with both my old Edges (and getting replacements, one of which cracked), I'm willing to try again, especially with some new colours which I think the original pen was crying out for.

 

I did, however, end up buying a Kaco ZhiBo from Bobby. :-)

You can find them on Ebay.com or their android app, just search for Kaco Edge and sort by newest on top.

There should be some listing you'll stumble upon.

Hmmm, not in any search I've done. There are plenty of colourful Kaco pens around (Sky, Retro, V&A etc.), but all of the Edges come up in black only. Is there a particular seller you can name?

For what it's worth, the Kako TMall shop lists the Edge as out of stock:

 

https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.5-b-s.w4011-16828236889.77.370565e1WwiSEO&id=576308100525&rn=16e3b7108e15813421f1a612b6446111&abbucket=1

 

So perhaps the eBay listings are jumping the gun a bit...

 

Yep, the only seller I eventually could find, esybuy, lists the brown and blue versions as out of stock. Not a bad price, $13.98, though a tad higher than I remember paying for my original black versions.

The cap on my Edge cracked after only a few weeks, but I enjoyed using it. The new colors look surprisingly decent so I may get another.

Those didn't show up in my searches, but when I use those links, it says they don't ship to the UK, which is probably why they didn't show in my searches. The one that does, esybuy, only has black in stock. The fickle finger of fate strikes again.

 

(edit) the list of excluded countries is quite random - they ship to France and Italy, but not Germany and Spain for example.

That makes sense, so there are limited sellers shipping to UK which is rather unfortunate.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
