    All very cool stuff, and the video was great. I'm sure you felt like you were giving things short shrift, but getting some information on everything is better than no information on anything…. Have you ever considered a different design for your Goulet Edison Nouveau Premiere? I love the colors, and I love Edison pens, but I personally don't like the design of the NP. Maybe it's time to change it up? Or perhaps you could rotate in a different shape?

  • PhilVT

    Thanks for the extravaganza. You keep things exciting with new offerings. I'm happy to see that you are bringing in OMAS and expanding your offerings from Pilot, including the nibs that I had to order from Japan in the past. Can you give us an update in an upcoming Q&A regarding the new Diamine inks and when you expect to have them available.

  • Judy

    Piggybacking on Jonathan's comment, due to RSI I need larger grip diameter. So if you do change up the NP would you consider that in your design input? Nice to see Rachel in a video, too.

  • Super5 was one of the sponsors of the Urban Sketchers Symposium this year. I had the luck to get one of those pens and try the inks, they are both great. I'm so glad now I can get the inks without having to search strange european sellers! YAY! The ink is really waterproof and dries fast, so it's great for watercolor sketches. The pen is very nice, the stub nib is like a fine nib, very soft. Nice video! Thanks, Brian! 😀

  • Lisa Smith

    *throws wallet at the screen* at least I have a few of these and at least you'll be able to buy cold medicine 🙂 feel better! I had a cold a few weeks ago, the worst!

    I bought a Super5 calligraphy pen immediately and love the 0.5mm stub! $28 for a smooth-writing stub is amazing. But I have two questions:

    What cartridge ink comes with it? (My cartridge is unlabeled but its blue ink looks like Super5 Atlantic.)
    Is this pen a decent candidate for conversion as an eyedropper?
