Probably, just have to find something around a #5.

All the nib units are the same and interchange; L, LJ, SJ, transitional, pastel, desk, etc.

 

I've put the same Chinese nibs into a Parker Duofold Jr and Vacumatic that had broken/missing nibs.  So it is likely that the reverse will work, and those Parker nibs will fit into an Esterbrook nib assembly.

 

Oh oh, that probably got FB upset at me  :(

I could start selling my pens to Weimer and I'd still be selling to a Gary...but he doesn't buy Parkers so you might be safe.

If I am pushed to answer which Esterbrook is the keeper and I'm limited to production pens, I would say the red one.

All time favorite is the full size Dollar pens, followed by the Relief 2-L, and SM Deluxe.

The ones that I don't own yet, would be the rest of the Relief pens, the Visumaster, and the early deluxe like pen with a military clip.

FP Ink Orphanage-Is an ink not working with your pens, not the color you're looking for, is never to see the light of day again?!! If this is you, and the ink is in fine condition otherwise, don't dump it down the sink, or throw it into the trash, send it to me (payment can be negotiated), and I will provide it a nice safe home with love, and a decent meal of paper! Please PM me!For Sale: TBA

I like the red ones too, but the grays are also very nice.

Gary sold a VS to me, so he must buy some Parkers...

For love of it. And yet not waste time either.

Then you need to find a Relief 66 - basically a bigger version of the Dollar B.  I also have a Relief 12, which is more like a Conway Stewart 28 (?).  I definitely need a Visumaster....one of these days.
