Esterbrook Sparkle

About That Sparkle

Introducing the Estie ‘Sparkle’. This gem of a pen has had a glitzy makeover and is Esterbrook’s most ambitious Estie to date.   As Esterbrook is committed to collaborations with U.S. suppliers, for this limited edition Estie, they partnered with Tim McKenzie of Charlotte, NC.  

Tim McKenzie is a custom Alumilite blank maker who wanted to separate himself in the marketplace. How to make one’s product unique is a challenge to artisans throughout the industry. Tim got innovative and added diamonds to his mix of Alumilite and pigments. Tim determined the precise size of diamond particles needed to allow his pen material to be machined effectively without losing the intense sparkle of the precious gems. Using reclaimed diamond particles from diamond cutters, McKenzie upcycles it and makes it into a material that shines and glimmers in each move of the resulting pen. The material is named Diamondcast.

Esterbrook approached Tim to partner with them to make a new version of their oversized Estie. The goal was to utilize his Diamondcast material in the most epic way possible. The result is the Limited Edition Estie Sparkle. It comes in three shimmering gem-like shades, Garnet, Tanzanite and Montana Sapphire (which has the addition of silver to make it even more of a showstopper).

This slightly oversized pen is comfortably balanced. The nib is specially manufactured in Germany by respected nib maker Jowo.  Nib choices are, fine, medium and broad. Montana’s trim is Rhodium. A cushioned cap closure provides a secondary seal to ensure an always ready wet nib. Ink is filled by a cartridge or a converter. A sleek clip provides a clean accent for the cap and slides easily to one’s shirt pocket.
