So it’s been months since I’ve bought this little beauty at the L.A. Pen Show. It was one of the pens that was on my “definitely buy” list along with my Franklin-Christoph Model 40P. I was never initially drawn towards Edison pens. I don’t remember the exact reason, but I was much more enthusiastic about Japanese fountain pens. This particular model, the Pearlette was a complete mystery to me until I read a review from The Gentleman Stationer.

Hey guys, I’m back!
The energy from the show is seeping into this blog post, because even though it’s been two days since college started back up, I’m still bouncing off the walls. I was ecstatic to attend the show, and even more excited when I realized all the different retailers and pen companies that were gonna be there. In short, it was an absolute pleasure meeting all these people, and I hope to be able to do it again next year. Most notably, meeting Brian Gray of Edison, Bill and Dan of Karas Kustoms, John Mottishaw of nibs.com, and master penman Michael Sull was honestly the best part of my trip. While it was oddly timed for me, and a little on the expensive side, I’m so happy with my decision to attend. If you guys ever have the chance of going to the L.A. Pen Show, don’t hesitate in the least. You won’t regret it. Now, on to what you all are going to ask me. What did you get at the show? Here are some teaser pics of everything I got (read as: the reviews to come).
