I've got a Bexley 10th anniversary pen that I traded my Pilot C742 with FA (flexy) nib for and I've never been happier. It's a Fine 18K nib and it's wonderful. The pen fits my hand perfectly and I've got it filled as an eyedropper right now so it holds a ton of ink. Can't say enough good things about it. The Edison pens I've handled and played with -my own Herald Grande, regular Herald, Huron, Pearl, old Beaumont, and extended Mina, are also fantastic. I like the bigger pens myself, but the girth of the Pearl also feels REALLY good. The small Herald is too small for me, the Huron is almost just right, and the Beaumont, well it's one of his first pens, so it's cool, but a little short for me as well. The Mina is a great size and shape and feels REALLY good in the hand, even with that tiny section, but the one I'm selling has a CI B nib and well, I just don't like italics AT ALL.
I've been meaning to photograph all the Edisons together next to a couple of my other pens to put up for size reference.
The Mina has an urushi finish that's really deep and quite lovely. And next to a Nakaya. It's hard for me to pick between which I like more: the Nakaya or an Edison. Specifically the Pearl. I'd have to pick an Edison myself.

The nib on the Nakaya is amazing though. Almost like a toothy wet pencil, if that makes any sense. Just absolutely sexy. The Nakaya has already sold though... :(

And then my own Bexley...
Next to my old 149. Great pen. Great big pen, but just didn't feel right in my hand. Traded it for a Pelikan M1000 and haven't looked back.
