    My Family Of Estie's

    My newest Estie acquisition arrived today. The blue transitional J, 1555 Gregg nib. Decided to take a family photo. Picked up this ready to use cigar box to to use for pens at a local smoke shop while running errands today. (freebie) The transitional is in need of a sac, and thus far the section has been very stubborn.... The photo...... http://i1016.photobucket.com/albums/af283/Runnin_Ute/Mobile%20Uploads/2017-02/20170211_182439_zpsidewgvox.jpg

    My First Esterbrook

    Just inked up my first Esterbrook, a beautiful little SJ in green that I bought from Brian Anderson, with a 1551 medium nib. It's a bit smaller than I'm used too, but that's not really a problem. It writes very smoothly with Waterman Mysterious Blue. I'm glad I was curious enough to try this brand.

    Won This Red Sj Yesterday

    A little more than I really wanted to pay for it, but not much. 9450 nib http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Esterbrook-Model-SJ-Fountain-Pen-Red-Pearl-/181973345893?hash=item2a5e74e665:g:D5cAAOSwSdZWfxuP&autorefresh=true With its arrival that will give me the red SJ, a green J and a black LJ. Will post more upon its arrival. The listing seemed to indicate it may need a new sac.
  4. Hello all, I have a green Esterbrook SJ that I got of the bay and re-sacced and all. But it leaked from the base of the section. Looking closely there is a crack in the section (perhaps someone over-tightened the nib). So if someone has a replacement section they can sell me, please drop a note on this thread. I have no idea what a section should go for. Thanks! cheryl
  5. I put an Osmiroid M Italic on what of my Esties and will not take it off. It is smooth and soft and artsy... I am practicing my handwriting with it. But it is not entirely an Esterbrook that way, right? but I need the ease of use. Another one has the 1554 which I love, scratchy but not too much and great for drawing.That is the only purpose of that Esterbrook. Could be great for making notes in small areas of a document, like when I pay my bills and write it down on a special notebook. The third one has the best nib I have used which is the 2668. Soft, wet, medium, the average and perfect for everything. Not extraordinary, but almost as soft as my Lamy Safari What will I use on the fourth Esterbrook that is arriving this week? --- I wish I could say I have the 2048, seems like a nice to have. In my nibs inventory I also have a 9314 M that I think I don't know how to use. Super scratchy unless I tilt it. It's in its box, have to use it when I can dedicate time to it. Should I always tilt it to write? Is that how it is supposed to be? I also have a Medium Venus and Linton that I bought just to make sure I would always have nibs. Which one is better? I am very interested on having a verdict on the Venus and Linton. Future plans: On the mail is an Osmiroid pen that comes with a B6 nib and another package with several Osmiroid nibs. That will be a great experiment and experience. NOTE: I have not tried the Linton but the Venus M is similar to the 1554. I can use it as a substitute if I ever need it. I welcome any suggestions on nibs that are desirable for Esterbrooks. Thank you! BTW: My goal is to have a sample of all the colors that the SJ came in. That is the only organized collection I will ever have.

    Estie Sj

    For a number of reasons, none of which are germane to the conversation, was going through my--er--vast and admittedly completely randomly organized collection? accumulation? aggregation? of ink slingers. Ran across an SJ that I totally completely forgot I had... Red Icicle with a pair of stickers...1551 nib and SJ...so this pup has never been used. Anyone hazard a guess as to its worth? No, not that I want to part with it, necessarily. (Any more than I want to part with my collection of Estie Dip-Less ink pots--) Sleek_Lover...
