The new Esterbrook JR Fantasia continues the success of this collection. It’s a combination of disparate melodies. The body is turned acrylic blue sparkling resin. The gold toned trim shines bright. The cap screws on. The cap, designed to post, makes the JR a comfortable writer; not overly heavy or too large when posted. The sparkly gold flecks further the fantasy, seemingly floating in the semi-transparent blue acrylic.
Where have all the pockets gone?
The “J” was Esterbrook’s sleek and suave 1950’s classic pocket pen that appealed to the practicality of their times. The ‘R’ has been appended to signify ‘J Revisited’. Today, a lighter pen clipped to a Polo shirt or jeans pocket is more in tune with our times. This is certainly not a mini pen. Its size is just perfect for ‘on the road’ enjoyment.
The fountain pen is available in extra fine, fine, medium, and broad. The pen fills with either cartridge or the included converter. And since Esterbrook hopes you’ll hold onto it forever, both the German JoWo nib and the top of the pen have been engraved with the Esterbrook Eternity symbol. The red clothe Esterbrook pen box is an added delight for Esterbrook collectors.
