• The B&B's First Ever- Limited Edition Fountain Pen

    Badger and Blade's First Limited Edition Fountain Pen
    The 2011 LE
    By The Edison Pen Company




    The B&B team is very pleased to announce our first ever Limited Edition Fountain Pen.
    We are delighted to be working with renowned custom pen maker Brian Gray, proprietor of the Edison Pen Company.
    Brian has graciously offered us the opportunity to do a group buy on one of his Signature Series Pens. These pens previously have only been offered as “one offs’’.

    The Badger and Blade Limited Edition Fountain Pen will be based on the Glenmont model. The Glenmont is a very traditional design, we feel it captures the romance of the beginning of the of the last Century and Brian’s rendition of this pen is breathtaking.
    The pen will be constructed of premium black and green swirl ebonite, a gold filled clip and gold and rhodium filled steel nib.
    • Body Material: black/green swirl premium German made ebonite
    • Clip Material: gold-plated
    • Nib Material: Steel gold/rodium
    • Nib Size: #6 nib, in fine (0.5mm), medium (0.635mm), or broad (0.8mm)
    • Cap Type: Screw-type, postable on body
    • Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/converter (included), or convertible to an eyedropper.
    • Overall Length (capped): 145mm/5 3/4"
    • Overall Length (posted): 165mm
    • Nib Length: 23.5mm (0.9in)
    • Weight w/ Cap 17g
    • Weight w/o Cap 10g
    • Cap Diameter .610"
    • Body Diamater .565"
    • Length Uncapped 4 7/8"








    Nibs will be available in Fine, Medium and Broad.

    The group buy will run for about two weeks. After the ordering period, this pen will no longer be available. All pens will be laser engraved with our badger head, serialized with x of xx, Badger and Blade Limited Edition, the engraving will be gold filled. (the pen shown has silver filling)






    ... And just in case you are on the fence about obtaining one of these limited edition pens, B&B will make your purchase even more special by donating a part of the proceeds from the sale of this pen to the Sue Moore Memorial Fund to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation in their fight against breast cancer.
    By purchasing this pen, you not only have the opportunity to purchase this beautiful limited edition pen but you also join B&B in our continued commitment to help end this disease. Ink for Pink continues here at B&B.


    Cost
    The price of this pen is something that will certainly be appealing. Since Brian is doing this from all the same materials, the same design, with no customizations, he can give us a very good price. Due to the production setting of this pen's construction, it is easier for Brian to make numerous pens of the same style and material than it is to make a couple pens that are totally custom.

    185.00 USD Includes shipping CONUS.
    This group buy is open to all members; international shipping will be at additional cost.
    Please contact me for specifics to your location.

    Shipping and timing.
    We expect the pens to ship by 11/15/2011

    How to order

    Send a PM to Jim (including your PayPal e-mail address), and you will receive an invoice. Please note in your PM which sized nib you would like. The default size nib, if none is mentioned, will be a medium.



    Here are some additional photos showing the pen with the Gold clip and Nib, as we will be providing. The fill in the engraving will be gold on the production pen-

    These photos are a better representation of the pen in normal lighting.

    Attention eBay bidders

    Thread Starter: dfoulk

    Whoever keeps outbidding me on eBay stop it, it's annoying and frustrating. I know what you are going to say "bid more". You think I didn't try that? I've tried bidding more but that doesn't work either. How am I supposed to keep buying stuff if you guys keep doing this to me. ...

    3D Printed DE Razor

    Thread Starter: evanc3

    Hey guys, just wanted to share my second prototype of my 3D Printed Razor. It's a bit ugly at the moment, but in the final design there won't be that bolt running through the cap, and the design will be more elegant. After some more testing and prototypes, I am thinking about doing a kickstarter...

    Rough Shave - Straight to a Slant

    Thread Starter: BRUIZR

    Hello all ... Really dumb question .. I've been shaving exclusively with straights daily over say the past 7 or so months. I recently started to miss my slant bar razor and took it out for a spin. I've only ever used Perma Sharp Super blades and boy did it give me a rough shave, especially under...

    Cigars - What's good?

    Thread Starter: Luke49783

    I used to smoke cigars on occasion from the time i turned 18 to midway through college. For some reason, I haven't had one in years, except for an Acid after they started selling them in gas stations in the humi-packs and a Cuban (I can't even remember what it was) when I was in the Dominican...

    The Freedberg PIF

    Thread Starter: Yminoh

    Good Evening B & B, I would like to pass along a couple of items for someone here to enjoy. I have a new, unused tub of The Freedberg that I hope someone will enjoy as much as I do. This is by far my favorite scent and I know many people have wanted to try it. Along with the soap I have a new,...

    Lanolin will eat your babies!

    Thread Starter: SliceOfLife

    Someone recently had some brush discoloration blamed on the Lanolin in MWF. Having used two band brushes for six years and Lanolin products almost as long, this didn't seem sensible to me; thus the test. Here we have pure, unadulterated lanolin. It's basically the color and texture of whipped...

    Traveling Slant - Try Before You Buy

    Thread Starter: Jeff_H

    Like the traveling OC, or the Traveling Slim, but with a slanted twist. I became involved with the Traveling OC thread after following the experiences of first time OC users. The thread seemed to be losing some steam, so I offered to throw in a modern OC to contrast the OC that Shutterbug so...

    Which gillette NEW?

    Thread Starter: RedBeard1

    I have a gillette old type, did't like it at first, but put a different handle on it and now I really like the way it shaves. Which brings me to my question. I want to get a NEW, but there seems to be a good number of different types of NEW's. I would like something on the aggressive side. How...

    Simpson Chubby 2 in Best, Super Three Band, Super Two Band, or Manchurian badger

    Thread Starter: JohnFM

    I currently own only one badger hair brush and it's a Simpson Duke 3 in Best. I like it very much but am now considering the Chubby 2 in either Best, Super Three Band, Super Two Band, or Manchurian badger hair. Price rises considerably with each step (though Two Band and Manchurian are similarly...
