The newest member of the production line series, the Edison Pearlette fountain pen, with a #5 steel nib engraved with the Edison logo, is a medium sized pen at 5-3/16 inches long. The pen measures 4-3/4 inches long uncapped, which is almost exactly the same size as a 1940's Vacumatic Major. The pen is 6 inches long when posted and posts well. The barrel and cap of the Edison Pearlette fountain pen are flush when capped making for a very Asian-looking streamlined pen with clean lines. The Edison Pearlette fountain pen uses either the included standard international converter, or short standard international cartridges for your convenience. The #5 sized nib is smaller than the nibs in the rest of the production line series and is available in XF, F, M, and B nib sizes in steel as well as an 18kt gold option.
