More info

The Beaumont Amber Glass is new for Autumn 2018.  This finish is lightly translucent as you can see by looking at the cap in the photo. Held up to a stronger light source, you’ll see through this material. It does have some nice pearlisation, but the tighter flecked pattern breaks this up. Amber glass has previously only been used in Edison's Signature Line pens with the exception of a small limited edition from several years ago.

The Edison Pen Company is a small independent pen maker based in OHIO, USA. Starting as a one-person operation producing bespoke models, it has expanded into a team that also produces a range of catalogue pens.

Key Facts:

The Beaumont is a medium sized pen than Edison's other models, it fits well in the hand either posted or unposted.

  • Medium sized pen at 129.1 mm capped - Total length (not posted, including nib) = 119.5 mm, for comparison the Pelikan M200 is 125mm capped - Total length (not posted, including nib) = 122 mm
  • Stainless steel nib 
  • Gold nib available as an upgrade.
  • Cartridge/converter - converter supplied
  • Free nib tune

What we like:

We just love the smoothness of the Edison nibs and the gorgeous resin finishes.  Anna's Edison is a daily writer and goes everywhere with her!

simply stunning

Absolutely beautiful pen. I think it might be a bit of a faux pas on Edison's part, because it puts to shame the other two colour options that have replaced the original finish in Autumn of 2018 - the twilight embers, and unicorn barf look good, but this one is in a different league.

The stainless steel nib is an exceptionally smooth writer compared to my Pelikan m200, and Platinum #3776. While it is not as Fine as the Platinum SF nib, it feels smoother than the 14K japanese nib.

Writing is considerably more wet than both my other pens, reverse writing is smooth as well, no problems there.

Tested with Pelikan's Edelstein Tanzanite ink.

Also, a big chapeau bas to the Writing Desk's staff, for speedy delivery - ordered Wednsday morning, recieved the next day, despite DHL doing their best to cock it up (I put in my work address, and we close at 4:15 PM), and this in December, no less with (I presume) Christmas shopping going on.
