I haven't posted here in a few years although I do pop in to have a look from time to time but I had to share my latest find. My daily writers are 4 SJs. I was a journalist for years reporting the courts and got into Esties for the shorthand nibs. I do Teeline so use the Gregg nibs. I've been on the look out for a 9128, the Pitman nib, for ages so when I saw one come up on what initially looked like a plain black LJ for a very low starting price I bid on it. There was also an Osmiroid 75 in the lot. When they arrived I discovered that the Estie is actually a dark green LJ like a pastel. It's an English one. The Osmiroid also came with a surprise, a steel Osmiroid shorthand nib. The Estie will need a new sac, but I did most of my SJs so I think I remember how. The only thing I'm worried about is getting in. I know the plastic used for the pastels is more fragile. Would this be the same? And if it is how do I get the section off? I only have the Ebay picture for now but I'll take better pics tomorrow. It's a lovely British racing green. Looks lovely with the chrome trim. Apologies for the less than elegant prose. I'm writing this on my phone! I just wanted to tell someone. My husband doesn't get my obsession with Esties.
