The previous Menlo pen (Signature Line) was designed with a Draw Filler, and was a very popular choice with fountain pen fans and enthusiasts. This inspired the Edison Pen Company in late June 2020 to release a re-engineered Menlo pen featuring a Converter Filler. They added the new pens to the Production Line. We are excited to carry these and have them available in three beautifully crafted materials: Sweet Honey, Blue Grotto, and Fingerpaints.
Edison Menlo – Sweet Honey
The Sweet Honey pen is made of a swirly golden amber resin. This never used before material comes from the same supplier as the Edison Collier – Rock Candy pen, so it has that nice “near-celluloid” feel. The Sweet Honey is accented with a gold-plated clip and centerband, and a #6 two-tone steel nib engraved with the Edison logo.
Edison Menlo – Blue Grotto
The Blue Grotto pen is made of a swirly turquoise and black resin (the same never used before material as the Sweet Honey), with a silver clip and centerband. The silver finish sets the Blue Grotto apart from the golden touches of Sweet Honey.
Edison Menlo – Fingerpaints
The Fingerpaints pen is made of a swirly rainbow resin. The material is the same as the Edison Menlo – Pearlette, and was re-used because of its popularity. It features the same silver finish as the Blue Grotto and the polished engraved steel nib.
Each pen accepts a standard international converter (included) or short standard international cartridges, or can be converted to eyedropper fill. Click here to shop all compatible short standard international ink cartridges.
