Limited Edition (May 2021)
The Estie is a tribute to the Esterbrook brand and its storied history. Short for Esterbrook, the Estie evokes a feeling of 1930s nostalgia, a time when fountain pens were an integral part of life and communication for most Americans.
The Esterbrook Estie fountain pen is a comfortably balanced pen. It is made of blended and turned acrylic and has a highly polished finish. A cushion closure on the cap provides a secondary seal to ensure a wet nib, and a sleek clip provides a clean accent for the cap and slides easily to ones shirt pocket. It has a nib made by JoWo of Germany, and it uses a Standard International ink cartridge or converter.
This oversize version is a substantial pen at 155 mm long capped and 185 mm with the cap posted (which we don't recommend!).
About the Estie Aqua
The spirit of the sea has been described by writers in song, soliloquy, fiction, memoirs, odes and asides for as long as there have been these words: vast, tranquil, placid, peaceful, ethereal, and dazzling for a start. These boundless and infinite expanses conjure up as many feelings and images as there are words for them: crystal clear waters in every shade of blue surrounding majestic islands, the smell and taste of a salty, briny ocean, the sparkling caps of undulating waves, lazy days spent seeking shimmering shells and building monumental sandcastles and the waning light of the sun as it sets over the water in a symphony of colour.
The Estie Aqua embodies all these words and experiences in a writing instrument. Its acrylic captures the mother of pearl luminosity of shells and the technicolor hue of deep, aqua waters. These pens are available in limited quantities, which will disappear as swiftly as the tide.
“There’s magic in the water that draws all [people] away from the lands, that leads them over hills, down creeks and streams and rivers to the sea. - Herman Melville
This pen comes presented in a gift box, and includes an ink converter for use with bottled ink.
