So, I was cruising through the treasure trove of later Esterbrook articles on Newspapers.com and ran across this one talking about the introduction of the Wonderiter.

It sounds like a stiffer felt tip. I cant say Ive ever seen one of these pens. Im familiar with the felt riter, but this is a new one on me. Anyone have pictures? More info?

It sounds like it might be a porous plastic point pen.

I wonder if it's the pen I just got.  It looks like a CX-100, complete with the cartridge and screw-in nib, but it's a screw-in felt tip and not a true nib.  The barrel has no imprint.

Based on the Pendemonium.com offering of the pen tips that looks like one.
