Pen of the Day: Custom Edison

DSC_6287Custom Edison with medium nib.  Brian Gray made me this Edison in tortoise lucite in a clipless cigar style.  It features one of Edison’s excellent gold nibs in medium, which is positively cushy.

I love the material.


It’s inked with a sample from a friend of Diamine Racing Green.  Made by Diamine exclusively for Missing Pen, a German eBay dealer, Diamine Racing Green is based on the discontinued Montblanc Racing Green ink.

I’ve never used the original Racing Green, but I’ve seen it in letters.  This Diamine version looks lighter and greener, but it’s still a nice color, with a lot of shading, and I feel very lucky I’ve gotten to try it.  I might mix some with a bit of black, to see how that looks.
