Esterbrook has just released the new Estie Route 66 Petrified Forest, which has us wondering: is there anything more American than Route 66? On one road alone, you get to experience the diversity of the entire U.S. landscape. From prairies to mountains, deserts to plains, Rt. 66 has a way of introducing you to the majesty of America and seeing the world through a new perspective. What better place, then, to start the journey through Route 66 in a new series of pens from Esterbrook?
Natural wonders abound on the Main Street of America and it’s easy to see why this stretch of road has a perennial spot on most people’s bucket list. Take, for example, the Petrified Forest national park, encompassing the natural phenomenon’s namesake and the Painted Desert. With bands of color that formed through years of erosion of the desert mountains, geological marvel is an out-of-this-world experience that must be seen to be believed. The large stretches of mountain look as though a watercolor brush was stroked across the sides, creating a visually stunning effect unlike anywhere else in the U.S.
Petrified Forest is the latest Estie, celebrating the beauty of taking it easy on Route 66, bypassing the shortcuts for the long way around the country, and enjoying the natural splendor along the way. The acrylic blend perfectly matches the Arizona landscape, making this an ideal pen for those with a little bit of wanderlust – and a lot of imagination – in their hearts.
The Esterbrook Estie Petrified Forest fountain pen uses a cartridge/converter filling system and is available with a broad range of nibs.
Estie, a kind of nick name for Esterbrook, is a tribute to the brand and its storied history. Short for Esterbrook, Estie also provides a feeling of 1930s nostalgia. A time when analogue pens were an integral part of life and communication for most Americans.
Times may be different, values stay. The Esterbrook Pen Company, a true American Original since 1858, is rewriting its long success story in modern times with a fresh new pen collection based on a complete rebranding. Join the revolution!
