Hi, Folks!

 

We just received a shipment of these pens and began photographing them.  They look really good in person.  Esterbrook dealers should have these pens in stock now.  These pens have been selling well and have a lot of color choices, so let's see yours!

 

This is the new Esterbrook Estie Evergreen with gold plate trim fountain pen.  It's 5.9 inches long and features a gold plated #6 German JOWO stainless steel nib.  The cap and barrel are made from a marbled translucent polished acrylic.  The cap has an interesting cushion cap closure that requires a little push while twisting it on or off.  The trim is gold plated.  It is a cartridge / converter type and with the addition of the MV adapter it can use vintage Esterbrook nibs.  This same pen is available with chrome plated trim.  Retail price is $195.

The Cobalt Blue does look particularly nice (not sure whether I prefer the silver trim or gold trim -- they both look good).  But at that price, I think I'll stick to vintage Esterbrooks....

I have to agree Ruth - seems pricey to me for a steel nibbed pen...  (Not that I'm bemoaning steel nibs at all....  )).

I'm not bemoaning steel nibs either.  I AM bemoaning the fact that back in the day Esterbrook was an inexpensive but well made pen that gave customers a huge variety of nib widths and quality levels for those people who needed a good writing instrument but for whom a Parker or Sheaffer was too expensive.  

And at $195 US, the "new" Esterbrooks have completely missed the concept.  I've paid less apiece for for ALL my Parker 51s -- even counting the repair costs on some of the 51 Vacs.  I've also paid less than $195 for some of my Pelikans, and even for my Parker Decimo (heck, a full size Vanishing Point costs less).
