My One Little Green Estie Sj Seems To Have Multiplied....

Recommended Posts

That one little green SJ that sparked my interest has turned into this in a short amount of time. I'm not sure how it happened.

I've cleaned and re-sacced every one of them (except the NOS ones). 9 Dollar pens, 4 Transitionals, and the rest are various sizes of the J family.

 

Not pictured is a large, three rib jeweled, Fern Green, Transitional Estie (not sure how I missed it when I was taking the photo).

That's it? Just the J series and antecedents?

Well, thats it for the Esterbrooks, I have plenty of other fountain pens but this was just an Estie family photo.

Oops, actually there are 5 more that didn't make the picture. 2 black LJs, another green dollar pen, (plus the 3 rib jeweled one I mentioned earlier), and a red Transitional, bringing the total up to 29........ plus two more on the way! A copper and a grey J on the way still.

(Chorus of voices): Hi John!

And I thought I had gone overboard a bit with a dozen....

So, enquiring minds want to know -- what nibs are on all these babies?

ETA: In my case it was the chance find of a black SJ with a 1555 Gregg nib....

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

Nothing fancy or rare, mostly 26XXs and 15XXs, a few GREGGs. So far the 1551 is my favorite but I have some 2556s and other fine nibs that I'd like to trade off.

Beautiful! That photo is an awe inspiring sight. You've come a long way in a short time. Aren't they wonderful?! You have almost as many as I have, but I have been gathering mine over my whole long life. That being the case, you have outdistanced me by miles and miles. I salute you! There are others here who have far more Esterbrooks than I, but if you continue at this present rate, you will be the undisputed Esterbrook J king.

 

Enjoy!

Thank you Sir, but now I'm on a self imposed moratorium on Estie buying, no more till after a mid January trip to NOLA. I can't spend anymore money till after that trip, but Estie buying has proven addictive for me. :-)

I can't say that I'd argue the point with you. ;)

I love how you rainbowed your collection. When I have all of mine together again, I will do so too.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
