This Just In: Edison Nouveau Encore – Flecked Tortoise

The Edison Nouveau Encore Limited Edition in Flecked Tortoise that I ordered back in November arrived on Saturday. This is one of the special editions that Goulet Pens has done in conjunction with Edison Pens. This was a limited edition of which I received #07 of 70 so it’s no longer available for purchase new.

Why I Bought It

The color, plain and simple. Other contributing factors were that I’m a fan of Edison Pens and this is a model type I don’t currently have. The only negative was the small size of the pen.

I purchased mine with the fine steel nib which has become my preference for Edison pens.

First Impression

The looks of the pen did not disappoint. I especially like the translucent nature of the pen. Right now I’m using a convertor so I can try different inks with relative ease. I look forward to seeing how this pen looks as a eye dropper with the ink in the barrel.

The pen is small, at least for me. But it’s big enough to use without posting, which is my preference. The fine nib has a nice smooth flow so I can use a light touch when writing. This should help avoid fatigue although I’ve only used it for short sessions so far.

First Ink

I picked Diamine Ancient Copper as the first ink for the pen. I like the ink and it seems to get along with the pen quite nicely.
