Esterbrook Estie harkens back to the nostalgic 1950’s in Camden, NJ. Ice cream parlors were a gathering place on warm summer nights and soda fountains were long counters with swivel seats in pharmacies and five and dimes. Jukeboxes were playing Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Sinatra, Elvis and the Beatles. A trip for ice cream was a multi-generational affair. Vanilla ice cream, homemade hot fudge, a sprinkle of peanuts, a swirl of whipped cream, and most important of all, a cherry on top.
In honor of this delectable delight Esterbrook is proud to launch a celebrating summer special edition with the Estie Maraschino, a toast to a symbol of Americana: the ice cream parlor, with a juicy red addition to the Esterbrook line-up.
And just like the summer, this Estie will disappear as quickly as the cherry atop a sundae.
Clean and vintage-inspired design with a ringless cap and without any metallic parts. Esterbrook Estie is a comfortable and well balanced fountain pen with a cushion cap closure that provides a secondary seal to ensure a wet point. Esterbrook Oversized is the big size of the serie.
Made with several colors of resin, turned with a high polished finish. Every color is available in gold or rhodium trim.
Now you can also choose "Journaler" nib size, a particular nib hand worked by Gena Salorino, an american nib master. In her own words, the custom nib Gena is grinding for Esterbrook is a “medium stub grind, based on the vintage Esterbrook 9314M nib. The idea is that it’s smooth and friendly enough for everyday use, gives your writing some flair, all without being too huge for practical writing”.
