Hey everyone!

I have been trying to get rid of my Sonnet and my Waterman Phileas FP and RB for quite a while now, I have not been able to purchase any new pens lately, thus I found someone to trade my Sonnet.

I was able to get a Gorgeous, no sign of use Esterbrook J in Red!!!!!! It was place in the mail on Saturday and it got in just 10 minutes ago! I wish I had ink in the office to try it out it has a 9668 nid, according to the ex-owner, it has never been inked! Well, time to bust it's c****y! Why have a pen that is not going to see action, it takes form its soul!

I went Esterbrook crazy, ask Brian, I try to get every pen I could when I had the chance and now I have a great little collection. Now that the great hype is gone and I do not wet myself everytime I see an Estie that I can get, I have been able to get my collecting strategy in order. I now have 4 J doule jewells, I just need to get a Green and a Copper. I have 2 of the flat single jewels, I will tackle them next, followed by the JS than the JL, shortly there after the dollar pens and lastly, the 3 rib jewels. This is the game plan, when all of the pens I want are accounted for, I will try to get a matching pencil for each! Once all the pearly beauties are counted for, I will go into the other series'. What do you all think?

Regards,

Esterbrooks are great pens and very durable. I love the plastics and the fact that the nibs on the so-called 'Model J' series (meaning the J, SJ and LJ pens) are interchangeable. Once you've collected all the pens, then you should try to get all the nibs! :lol: (Just kidding, Angelo!!)
