I am still trying to load photos into a post.
The picture was taken with a loaner and the colors are more vibrant in person.

I find the flex nibs of Esties quite fascinating.

Ah KCkc, I see which Esties & nibs you have now! And I agree with Keith's comments. Glad you're enjoying the Esties. I have one like each of those in my collection.

Love those Esties! An Esterbrook was the first FP I bought which started me down the slippery slope of collecting!

Very nice pics!

There are few vinatge pens I have seen that hold up as well as Esterbrooks as even after being used regularly over very long periods this shine will remain.

I use several of these pens that were mint when I got them and they still look as good as the day they arrived.

Wow!

A lot of the Estie colors are like that. As Keith said - they really hold up.

They almost feel oily to the touch for me. not uncomfortable or slippery - but ... well maybe waxy is the better term. Just lovely color IMO.
