The Esterbrook Estie Sea Glass collection is inspired by the weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water. Sea glass can take up to 100 years to turn into natural frosted glass, which is very popular among collectors and jewellery makers.
The Sea Glass fountain pens use a cartridge/converter filling system, and are available in regular size as well as oversized.
The steel nibs come in sizes Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and 1.1 mm Stub, but you can also choose the Esterbrook exclusive ‘Journaler’ nib (medium stub) by Gena Salorino or the ‘Scribe’ (architect) nib by Josh Lax.
Estie, a kind of nick name for Esterbrook, is a tribute to the brand and its storied history. Short for Esterbrook, ͞Estie͟ also provides a feeling of 1930s nostalgia, when phrases like dingy, dizzy, doggy and brodie were commonplace. A time when fountain pens were an integral part of life and communication for most Americans.
Esterbook began manufacturing nibs in the US in the mid 1800s, but the 1930s were a period of importance, as they introduced their first interchangeable nib system in 1933. The interchangeable nibs gave the user many options for writing, whether in school, business, personal etc. Today, a similar system is reborn with the Estie and the specially engineered MV Nib Adaptor. The MV adaptor delivers a vintage nib experience with a modern shape Esterbrook pen.
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!
