What better way to celebrate the budding new summer season than with the exciting announcement of the latest collaboration between Edison Pen Co. and The Goulet Pen Company? The 15th seasonal edition of the Edison Nouveau Premiere is a rare blossom indeed, with petals of blue and purple throughout the swirled acrylic body. Aptly named Delphinium, the Edison Nouveau Premiere Summer 2017 edition is the embodiment of happiness and fun new experiences, much like its floral namesake. The Delphinium flower also holds a special meaning for Brian and Rachel. Rachel explains, “royal blue was one of our wedding colors and I wanted that color in our flowers. The florist suggested Delphinium because it is one of the only naturally blue flowers (and is in season in August, which is when we got married), so we went with that.” So, this flower seemed an appropriate choice for the latest Premiere design. But don’t hesitate too long, these beautiful blooms are only available for a limited time!
The Edison Nouveau Premiere Delphinium is a gorgeous combination of rich purple and bold blue with ribbons of white. The pens are handmade by Edison Pen Co. in Milan, OH. Each pen has a unique appearance and the swirls vary by pens. The body is slightly translucent and would make for an interesting eyedropper pen if you enjoy catching glimpses of the ink swishing around inside. You can easily convert it with a bit of silicone grease. Check out Brian’s video on how to eyedropper a pen here! The pen also comes with a standard international converter and is compatible with standard international cartridges. The pen is packaged in a lovely gift box.
The Edison Nouveau Premiere takes a #6 nib and comes with your choice of a smooth writing Edison steel nib in EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm, and 1.5mm Stub. You can also upgrade to an 18kt Rhodium-plated gold nib for an additional $150. Replacement steel nibs are available for $25 in EF, F, M, B, 1.1mm, and 1.5mm Stub, if you’d like additional nib sizes to try out with your pen. Brian describes the Edison nibs as smooth-writing with a nice flow and just a hint of feedback. Not sure how to go about swapping nibs? Check out Brian’s video!
