The Edison Collier is one of the most beautiful pens I've ever had the pleasure of using, and it did not cost a (large) fortune. This is a large, cigar-shaped fountain pen in the, let's be honest, completely mesmerizing persimmon swirl acrylic. This model has a gold-colored clip that sits under the threaded top. It is wide at the top, narrows towards the end, and finishes in a round ball. The barrel is engraved with Edison Pen Co. Collier. The section is relatively small compared to the pen body, with a pinched shape.
The two-tone steel #6 nib is a well-adjusted broad. It has a single slit and breather hole, some flourishes, and is laser etched with the Edison logo.
The clip is snug, but springy, so easy to operate one handed.
I really like the pinched shape of this section. It felt just right in my grip, but the section to barrel difference is noticeable - that is, the section is much thinner than the barrel, and I really feel that in hand. The threads are at the end of the section and may be in the way of your grip if you have large hands, or if you hold your pen higher up. The threads were not sharp so I didn't find them bothersome.
Menlo as it's slightly thinner.
Menlo, whose size is slightly more appropriate for my comfort.
