This writes quite smooth for an EF and I was amazed at how much ink the feed held while the first writing was done with only a nib dip. The reverse writing was solid for an EF and flushing showed how much ink the feed truly held. The white pieces in the resin catch the light and there is depth to the look. My best hold position seems to be farther back than using the curved area and I hold onto the threaded section! It isn’t sharp at all and being farther back from the nib allows for lightning fast writing without tiring my hand by being jammed onto the small grip area. Lovely pen and its Nighthawk name also makes it special for me❣️
1) Has the right feel in my writing hand, especially with the tapered section. Some other pens have some taper for fingers in the section, but not to the degree of Edison’s Collier. I judge a writing instrument greatly by its feel in my
2) Is made in the USA, the way that our belongings used to be.
3) Has vintage style, especially with the clip with the ball shape at the end.
4) Was individually inspected for quality before it was shipped. I understand that also the nib tip is smoothed before it leaves Edison’s facility.This is especially important for an extra-fine (EF) nib like mine.
All these factors make me a satisfied customer, even though this is the most I’ve paid for a fountain pen. I also am glad that I bought it at a physical “brick & mortar” store. I got a 5% discount and got to hold and heft it before purchase.
Beautiful pen, smooth nib, comfortable in hand. Will buy another Edison in the future. Definitely recommend.
As a long time user of fountain pens (I started when they were used in grade school) I have only used inexpensive pens as they worked and that is all I wanted from them. I finally decided to invest in a much nicer writing instrument and after much research I purchased the Edison Collier. All I can say is that I am very pleased with the quality of this pen. In addition I really love the look of the Collier and plan to add more pens to my growing collection. https://flic.kr/p/2geCYe2
Nice pen! This is my second. I first purchased it in “Antique Marble”. The medium steel nib writes very well. I purchased these pens to check Edison’s quality as they are my first of their products and I’m pleased. Next is a gold nib in a different finish body.
