The Edison Beaumont is a pen that came out in August of 2012 in three colors (see my video introducing them here). Edison has recently added a new color, called Bordeaux Flake, to the lineup. It's a nice crimson red flecked material embedded in a pool of black to compliment the black accents of the grip and finial.
The Beaumont has been a very popular pen, and for good reason. It's small enough for those with smaller hands (like my darling wife), but large enough for brutes like me to hold comfortably. Normally a pen this size requires a small nib, but somehow Edison managed to jam a large #6 size stainless steel Jowo nib into it and still keep the pen a reasonable size. What's also cool is that Edison nibs are available separately from the pen, so you can get a whole collection and switch and swap extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, 1.1mm, or 1.5mm nibs to your heart's content.
So if you had your heart set on a Beaumont but couldn't decide what color you liked most, now your choice just got even harder. The Bordeaux Flake isn't an impulse buy at $149, but for those who know the Edison name, it's a pretty good deal.
