Esterbrook Display Case And Nibs


Recommended Posts

I know some of you dislike ebay but there is an Esterbrook display case on ebay. The case comes with a selection of seventy NOS nibs. There are also some pens included. The item is titled "vintage esterbrook fountain pens". I wish i could buy it but i am sure that the price will quickly jump beyond what i can spend without getting a divorce or significantly reducing my life expectancy.




Normal disclaimer: I have nothing to do with this sale or the person selling it, just saw it today while avoiding grading papers. Hope i am not violating any rules here. Sorry if i am.

In that case, I'll abstain :)

That is nice, but I'll stay with the Parker cases that I can afford...


I wasn't bidding on the case at all, nor the pens. Those 70 NOS nibs, however, are an entirely different matter. :lol:

Mine too. Someone must really want it.


It's interesting to see an item jump in $50 increments, and not inch up like some of these do.

I did not see past the case. Woow a boat load of nibs.

As of now [ when typing this ] the bid is at $610.00. I could swing at it, however I am in the

market for a new stove at this time and will buy one this weekend as mine died and I will spend about $650 - $700 for a new stove. I need it for Easter as I am the host.


So I will pass on this item.

And, it's still at a reasonable price for everything in the listing. If the one bidder stays in his pattern, I wouldn't be surprised to see it go to $700, and that would still be decent. Not great, but not bad.

Well as of now (2/25, about 5:45 PM EST) it's sold. Hammer went down at $610 US. Way too rich for my blood.

Wonder if anyone here got it. And if we'll shortly see a bunch of listings for nibs (and if any of them are on my "want list"...).

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now.

      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
