Works in miniature

It's amazing the amount of detailed craftsmanship that can go into something as relatively small as a fountain pen nib - detail that can get lost due to scale. I thought I'd share some close-up photos of nibs that I think are beautiful, so you can see them in more detail. Enjoy!

And now, a word about Edison

A month or two ago, I wrote a review about the Bexley Jitterbug! in which I also briefly mentioned Edison Pen. The gist of the comment was, I’d been leery of both Bexley and Edison for some time, not sure how well they, as boutique makers, would compare with the more “major” penmakers.

Well, I’ve gotten over that little fear.
