Wee Deep Dip Pen, With Cap


Alexcat
 Share

Recommended Posts

I got this.....it's a tiny Esterbrook dip pen, with an e tea large dip nib(photos show it as it arrived....have as yet done nothing to it)

 

On the nib :

314

R. Esterbrook relief( Im assuming "relief", as the 'r' is under the barrel)

 

Altogether, capped around 6"

 

I love how it has a cap, and plan to use it as a test pen, when Im trying to choose an ink. It's just a very pretty little thing, and I'd love to know more about it....anyone got any information?

 

Also any advice on care, cleaning, and if/where such replacement nibs are available....

 

I hope it's ok to post in more than one place - wasnt sure where this should go. Mods. please give me a gentle ticking off if I shouldn't have done it :)

 

Alex

Alas, not that I know if. Got it on fleabay UK. Seller listed it thusly:

 

" Elegant Dip Pen. Tortoise shell type holder and cap.

Easterbrook nib 314 Reliefe

"

Here's the picture from the listing.....post-110936-0-74639000-1427363348.jpg

 

Trying to decide if/how to clean it up. Meantime, just cooing gently over it....it's so sweet :)

I saw this on ebay, I asked if the pen itself (rather than the nib) had any marking to suggest it was made by Esterbrook, but received no response. Therefore I did not bid.

 

out of curiousity, can I ask the new owner the same question?

I have just had a very close inspection, and as far as I can see, no, there's nothing on it which would say it was made by Esterbrook.

 

(And I really don't like it when sellers don't answer questions. Very rude, very unprofessional)

I only use a dip pen for trying out new inks and that nib is the one I use. I tried others but because I don't practice, it seems the easiest to handle. They are on ebay very often.

Looking for a black SJ Transitional Esterbrook Pen. (It's smaller than an sj)

It's an Easterbrook nib but probably not an Easterbrook made pen. That is the nature of dip pens. You can use any brand of nib.

Cool! I just bought a real dip pen (already have a couple Esterbrook with the renew point holders), and have a small set of nibs coming. I like using one for my journal, and to try out new inks.

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
