I have an Esterbrook pen that I bought "on line" about 12 years ago, and, AND it is a great pen! So good, I tend to "take it for granted!" I know very little about the history of the brand, etc. I just know that my pen is a great, great writer! If it is possible for a nib to be TOO smooth, that may be the case with this nib. It has the number 2668 on the nib.
With more than a few of my pens, I often wonder when I pick up one of my other pens ------ "Well, I wonder how it is going to "write" today?"
Never have those thoughts about my "lowly Esterbrook!" Always puts great ink on the page!
I believe I know that some of you "collect" Esterbrook pens. That is of little interest to me. I just want to marvel at the great pen I have, and enjoy the way it "writes."
