Esterbrook Pens

The Esterbrook Pen Company was a true American Original.

For one hundred years Esterbrook was the pride of Camden, NJ.

In 1858, entrepreneur Richard Esterbrook established his pen company under the trademark Esterbrook Pen Company, which would soon become one of the biggest and most beloved pen makers in the world. At its height, Esterbrook was the largest pen manufacturer in the United States employing 600 workers.
 
Much of America’s history has been written and created with Esterbrook pens. U.S. presidents Abraham Lincoln and Lyndon B. Johnson signed legislation with their Esterbrook pens. John F. Kennedy called for our nation to literally reach for the stars, signing documents that promised to land a man on the moon and bring him safely back to earth.

Famous Disney artist Carl Banks brought Donald Duck to life with an Esterbrook No 356. Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz used the No 914 for all his comics. All the while millions of students grew up learning to write using Esterbrook pens. It is fair to say that these visionaries, and artists, helped Esterbrook to become an integrated part of America’s politics and culture in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Esterbrook - Estie Fountain Pen - Gold Trim - Petrified Forest

This pen is inspired by the classic Americana of Route 66 and the Painted Desert along the highway. 

Millions of years ago, the trees of the Petrified Forest, in NE Arizona, were toppled by volcanic eruptions, and then swept away by flowing water and deposited in marshes. They were covered with mud and volcanic ash, and layers of sediment. The logs remained buried for millions and millions of years, undergoing an extremely slow process of petrifaction which essentially turned the logs to colourful stone. The area became covered with an ocean, covering the logs with even more sediment. Then, about 60 million years ago, the ocean disappeared and was replaced by flowing rivers. The rivers gradually eroded away over 2,600 feet of sediment, slowly exposing the petrified wood that litters the landscape at the Petrified Forest National Park.

Esterbrook - Estie Fountain Pen - Gold Trim - Honeycomb

As the waning days of summer give way to the changing season, we present our newest Estie, a tribute to the prismatic beauty of a light-filled Honeycomb. Honey is as old as history itself. Used for more than 8000 years by ancient civilizations as a gift to the Gods, archaeologists excavating Egypt’s famous pyramids discovered tombs that contained still-edible 3000 year-old honey. Bees also know the magic of crystallized honey, storing and using it for food as fall arrives and winter approaches. The Estie Honeycomb is flecked with the colors of rich amber, golden sunsets, and is reminiscent of the rainbow of rustling leaves underfoot
