Modern Flourishes from an ‘Old’ Brand
Since 1858, the Esterbrook brand has featured fountain pens. You’d think after 160 years they’d produce a pretty fine pen! They do. The Estie features a flexible steel nib which impresses whether extra fine, fine, medium or broad. Fed through either a cartridge or converter, your Esterbrook Estie, will write like it has a century and a half of experience.
The fountain pen and corresponding rollerball bodies are a typical size and weight. The resin in Blueberry, Tortoise or Cobalt is striking. The latest, Honeycomb, is a mesmerizing array of golden and yellow. The resin is hand-finished to a gleaming shine, you’ll admire your purchase with every stroke. The trim is a gold tone. The Honeycomb adds the chrome trim. The Esterbrook ‘Cushion Cap Closure’ is just a push and single twist. It’s designed to securely seal the nib to ensure a wet point.
The fountain pen is available in the Oversize model in the Honeycomb. The nib selections are Fine, Medium and Broad. The German made YoWo #6 nib is renown for its buttery soft feel and flexible structure.

My new Esterbrook “Estie” Tortoise fountain pen arrived the other day from Colorado Pen, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it.
Its “tortoise shell” body is strikingly beautiful, and reminiscent of an aristocratic masterpiece from the 1930s (which is why I chose it). And since it’s hand-polished acrylic resin, I enjoy it with a clear conscience: No poor tortoise lost his shell to produce it!
The gold-plated nib, bands, and clip gleam. The CP Charoite Blue bottled ink I’ve filled it with, using the (included) converter, flows richly onto the paper, as smooth as silk, with never a skip or a “dry start.”
I own and use other fountain pens, ranging from $25 to $500; but none surpasses the beauty and performance of this one. As a luxurious, first-class writing instrument for yourself, or as a stunningly impressive gift for a deserving recipient who appreciates fine things, you won’t go wrong with this Esterbrook Estie!
