LIMITED EDITION - December 2020
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 stainless steel 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 18 5mm with the cap posted.
Introducing the Estie Peacock!
The pride of the peacock has long been depicted in temple art, writings and music. The peacock’s place in Indian folklore cannot be over-emphasised: one of the most important deities, Lord Krishna was known to have adorned his head with the peacocks’ feathers and in illustrations of Shiva, the God of War, he is often accompanied by the peacock as a sign of strength. The peacock symbolised wisdom, royalty and power and it still does today, as the national bird of India.
To illuminate the magnificent colours of the peacock, the DiamondCast material for these writing instruments was developed in collaboration with McKenzie Penworks and gleams just like the glimmering feathers of this majestic bird. Available in rollerball, standard and oversized fountain pens, the Peacock Estie is available in extremely limited quantities, making it just as rare as the glorious avian it represents.
All trim and appointments are gold plated.
This pen comes presented in a gift box, and includes an ink converter for use with bottled ink.
