Edison Menlo Draw Filler

A whole new filling system available from the Edison Pen Company!  I had the pleasure of catching up with Brian and Andrea Gray at the 2017 DC Pen Supershow and Brian lent me this clear Menlo with their new Draw Filler.  At 2.0 millilitres of ink, it has a solid ink capacity, and it’s a fun system to use.  Please note that the mechanism is black anodized aluminum, not plastic (I was a bit unclear in the video).
