The pen, with the indented section, looks like a kit pen.  I can't imagine using one of those.  It looks like a travesty of a resurrection of a brand.   I waver on whether I will use my Esterbrooks or just keep them as collectibles.  The new ones I wouldn't let on the property.  I did like that Brian and Lisa said it didn't dry out in a week.  That would tend to put it ahead of most of the recently made pens I have used.  However, clumsy posting, section narrower than the barrel, bah, humbug, and the price.  Actually I wouldn't pay that much for any of the pens in the comparison.  I am ashamed to admit I let the Prera on the property, but it was cheap.

If you want to see what I think is an excellent example of "reviving an old, respected fountain pen brand", check this out.

I agree, they have done an amazing job. I think the new ones are prettier than the antiques.


Fountain pens are my PREFERRED ADVANCED COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas.
