As Richard Esterbrook was setting up shop on the east coast in 1858, one of the most significant events to shape American history was just coming to a close. The Gold Rush brought 300,000 people from around the world to California, making San Francisco the central metropolis of the new frontier.
To celebrate the Gold Rush’s place in American history and honor Esterbrook’s own history, the Esterbrook Estie has been reimagined in a new exclusive Diamondcast resin: Gold Rush Frontier Green.
Esterbrook Estie fountain pen has a 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.
Take a look at Esterbrook Custom Nib Program and try "Journaler" e "Scribe" nib sizes. The first one is 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”.
"Scribe" is made by the New Yorker Josh Lax and it's his version of architect nib. Gets inspired by the Near East architect nibs, less common than architect nibs based on European and Far Eastern styles of writing. It gives the writer the flexibility of fine downstrokes and broad horizontal strokes and can also be used in reverse for additional variation.
