The Esterbrook forum has been grayed out for more than a month, so I decided to start a new topic.
I bought all six colors of the full-size J model because that's what I remember from my grade school days. All have different nibs and get used at one time or another. A neighbor offered me a nice red LJ for $15 so I bought it. I find it to be too slender in the hand. [ I offered it to my wife but she only uses her Pelikan 400. ] Then I ventured into the transitional J world, primarily because I wanted to try the nibs on them. They are every bit as comfortable to use as the Js, but there is a cleanliness about the lines of the barrel that I find attractive.
I have no particular intention of expanding the modest collection, but I am curious as to how others compare their various Esterbrook pens. What do you like about particular models? Do you find some designs off putting, and why?
Comparing nibs would also be interesting, but I think it may deserve a separate thread...
