I like all of them personally!
The Huron is nice, because it reminds you of a vintage pen!

Which is your favorite among these Edison custom classics?

Hi Frank,

I think the Glenmont has a style of the vintage pens more than the others especially if made with the contrasting top and tail, perhaps in the red/black ebonite.

Always fun to dream! Good luck.

Roger

Thanks Roger!

I think the Glenmont has a lot going for it as well!

It has that "Vintage Parker" look to it!

I voted for the Pearl but I was really torn between that and the Huron, among the choices above. When I first stumbled upon the Edison pens website, I was drooling over the Mina, but I've since changed my mind. If I had the budget for it, I'd get a Herald. :)

I have narrowed the choice down to the Huron in these colors-

Let me know what you think!

Are you getting the tortoise flake? I think for this model, I would opt for the colors in the first pic. :)

Frank,
I have been scheming on a custom Edison for a while, it is on my drawing board..... I got in on the group buy over on "you know where"....Ebonite Beige/Black Pearl with gold furniture & 2tone nib.
Once it gets to me, I will decidewhether or not the custom will be a "go", the idea for the custom is a tortoise barrel with a satin black ebonite cap, finial and section.... probably an Eyedropper.... perhaps even a jawdropper too!
The two color / material idea strikes me as having a very "refined" look...alot like a Pelikan. Hmm.
