I use an Esterbrook J as my daily pen and it works for me in most ways. I remember to fill it every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The length is perfect for my shirt pocket and it's no nonsense being, sits well with me.
Sometimes I do wish that the section was slightly thicker, or at least didn't taper as much.
I'm guessing that there's nothing we can do about the section on an Esterbrook but can someone suggest the closest thing to a black Esterbrook J with a thicker section.
