In today’s Quick Look, I’m showing off the Edison Collier. This fountain pen is one of Edison’s most popular models because it’s a really attractive pen & perfect as a longform daily writer. Many more details in the video above, but here are a few highlights:

  • Manufactured in the US (Milan, OH) by Brian & Andrea Gray
  • Made in a cast acrylic resin, not injection molded like less expensive pens
  • Four Colors Available:
  • Larger pen with nearly a 9.9m grip diameter, but lightweight (26g)
  • Due to the size/weight, makes a great pen for long writing sessions
  • Steel nib units in EF, F, M, B 1.1mm, & 1.5mm. 
  • Standard International Cartridge/Converter (included), also accepts long & short SI cartridges
  • Can be converted into an eyedropper with a bit of silicone grease
  • Available for $149 MSRP
For those looking for their first (or next!) $100+ fountain pen, the Edison Collier makes a great choice. Backed by great warranty support, the Collier is as comfortable as it is attractive.

    Brian’s Quick Look is WRITE ON, I love my Collier in Burnished Gold, and the video shows this pen’s beautiful pearlescence perfectly. I have medium hands and have no trouble writing with this pen, extended or short sessions. One problem is that you have to choose one of four amazing acrylic resins. I had to have the Burnished Gold, but admit the Blue Steel and the Antique Marble pens are still calling to me. I got the 18K gold nib in fine, and it is wonderful. However, my Edison Glenmont has the fine steel nib, and it is a wonderful nib too, you won’t regret getting one of the steel nibs at all. Seeing these amazing pens rotating close-up in the video shows the acrylic resins’ depth of colors and light play so well, it is like holding one in your hand. The fit and finish of these pens are precision, masterfully crafted. I highly recommend any Edison pen, but the Collier is high up on my list of favorite pens.

    Now I’m waiting for a Quick Look at the new Edison Pearlette pen materials so I can see those pens rotated in the video!

      I was going to ask that myself, Tom! Thank you for asking for me! 🙂

      • Tom Johnson

        David, I sure wish you could come to our Roanoke Pen Club for one of our meetings. You could see all 4 of my Edison pens plus some 30 other pens! Not to mention all the vintage and modern pens the other members will bring too.

        • David L.

          Tom, I would love to. However, I live far from Virginia. If I’m ever around there, I may drop in. 🙂

      I was waiting for you to comment, Tom! I am glad this quick look got your seal of approval. Definitely isn’t helping me maintain my composure to not buy my Collier. lol

      • Tom Johnson

        Lydia, was that you writing with these pens in the video? This video is just fantastic. Had it been on the blog earlier, I probably would have bought my Collier a couple of weeks sooner than I did! My experience matches everything Brian says about the pen. Any the pen shown in the video looks exactly like my Collier! Wait, it is my Collier! 😉

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          That was Jenni doing the writing but my hands were in there for a few seconds holding a few of the pens. 🙂

  • David L.

    The Blue Steel is my favorite Collier. I have been eyeing it for months. The Burnished Gold is equally perfect. I agree with Tom Johnson that a Quick Look on the new Pearlettes would be great. I think the Sonoran Sunset Pearlette will be my first Edison. I can’t stop thinking about it!!

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Definitely passing the Quick Look recommendation along 🙂

  • David

    A pen that doesn’t post – is a broken pen.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      I can see your point, David, and I would have thought the same thing until I used the Collier. This pen is so very comfortable to write with that posting is totally unnecessary and I find myself not even worrying about having to keep an extra eye out for not losing the cap or something.

    • Mitchell Weinberg

      I have to respectfully disagree David. It’s just different, and something a potential buyer should know before making a decision about whether or not to buy this pen. I have to agree with Brian’s comments in his review though. I’ve used this pen almost daily for two years, and it’s by far my favourite pen to write with. It just writes so incredibly well, every single time. The non-postability is just part of this pen’s profile. Not good or bad, just is.

    I bought the Edison Collier in Silver Marble with a steel EF nib in 2013, and I absolutely LOVE it. Reliable, beautiful, a pleasure to write with, very comfortable–it is one of my favorite pens. I appreciate light pens, and I never post them.
