The Edison Ascent fountain pen is our newest exclusive model, a collaborative design between the Goulet Pen Company and the Edison Pen Company. Similar in size to our Premiere model but with rounded-off ends, we named this model the Ascent to represent how we are building upon the success of the Premiere. The Ascent is a screw-cap that pushes to post, and features a comfortable grip section.

Each of the colors in the Ascent collection are named after musical song styles, as we share a love for music with the folks at Edison. Nocturne, a French word which means nocturnal, is typically a musical composition that is evocative of the night. The darker grey/black ombre resin colors of this pen match this feeling.

The Ascent comes with a silver clip, and a polished #6 JoWo steel nib engraved with the Edison logo. It accepts a standard international converter (included) or standard international cartridges. It can also be converted to an eyedropper with a little bit of silicone grease.

All Edison pens are handmade in Milan, Ohio and are each unique. We do our best to photograph the pens to show how they will appear in person, but due to the nature of the material, expect some variation in the pattern from what you see here.
