Esterbrook - Estie Fountain Pen - Gold Trim - Tortoise
One of the top-selling colours, Tortoise harkens back to the popular acrylic blend from the 30s and 40s. A balanced blend of browns and tans, Tortoise has the elegance of yesteryear while still very much being a modern pen.
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 pen comes presented in a gift box, and includes an ink converter for use with bottled ink.
