    Dropped-right-on-the-Nib

    Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for coming. At 82 dollars, this was the most expensive pen I've ever bought in my whole life. I have never had any pen write as well as this one either. Today was a super special day for me. it was my first day of school at this new place. Well i clipped it onto the little loop on the back of my tie. Of course it somehow became unscrewed, and fell... I'm convinced that if I try to fix it on my own, I WILL get it to write again. I might even get it back to normal, but I really doubt it. If I go that route, it probably won't write anywhere near as wel
  2. Hello Estie lovers, My first real "rabbit hole" into fountain pen collecting was the serendipitous purchase of an Esterbrook that had an 8668 palladium-silver nib attached. I have a background as a chemist and have long been in love with palladium; that coupled with the WWII history (another interest of mine) made this a fantastic discovery for me. It writes just beautifully! The first thing I did, being new to the game (and I still am!) was to look for advertising about these nibs and Esterbrooks in general during WWII. I loved finding ads stating that "only a few pens can be made" due to
  3. "The eyes of the world are upon you." -Dwight Eisenhower's message to the troops of the invasion force This year marks the 75th anniversary of the historical day that was the turning point for the Allied forces in World War II. Made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of D-Day at Normandy. This pen is limited to only 5300 fountain pens, signifying the number of ships that crossed the English Channel on the dawn of June 6th 1944. The body is crafted from a gorgeous military green resin with gold vermeil trimmings. This Omas D-Day Fountain pen c.1994 is in exceptional condition and has been

    Sheaffer Sales Training Video 1943

    I'm double posting this, to here and to the Pen History forum. If this violates the rules too badly, I apologize and will delete this one if necessary. I have been converting our old VHS tapes to DVD and in our very large collection I ran across one that I had gotten some years ago (over 11 at least). I don't remember where I got it but I believe it may have been someone from this or some other fountain pen forum back earlier this century. https://youtu.be/A8BiarUbUJE The video is from 1943 and is, I believe, a training film for Sheaffer salesmen. It's made by Jam Handy Productions, kn

    Esterbrook Used In Wwii?

    Dear Esterbrook Collectors, I am currently working on a short story--a personal graphic novel project--set during the final days of WWII. I understand that there were fountain pens made by Watermans and Mabie Todd that were specifically meant to be used efficiently by servicemen in the trenches. But I am curious to know if there were any stories or records of Esterbrooks that were used on the battlefield? But perhaps someone did--to write letters home or to document his daily life as a soldier in a small journal? In any case, I'm currently new to collecting Esties and I've yet to explore t

    Searching For Swan

    I may have already posted this....so forgive me if I have. I'm new to fountain pens, and it has become an exciting venture for me. I must say that I find Mabie-Todd and Swan fountain pens to be enchanting, if not moreso than Parker, Sheaffer, Waterman or others. Most of the discussion of this thread has concerned pens for soldiers, but I am wondering about pens on the home front during WWII. I have an abiding interest in WWII. What was Swan's situation in England during WWII? I know that England suffered much, so what happened to Swan? I know that the U.S. made great sacrifices during the war.
