Esterbrook Estie Oversize Diamondcast

 

The Esterbrook Estie oversize is a classic American design, made with a stunning new material from Mackenzie Penworks.  It incorporates fragments of diamonds in the resin mix to give an intense and luxurious sparkle to the pen.

It is offered in two stunning resins:  The Rocky Top, Peacock and Cosmic Wine.

The Rocky top celebrates the the border of Tennessee and North Carolina, The Appalachian Trail crosses Thunderhead Mountain. The Rocky Top is on the western part of the summit, the destination for hikers and inspiration for the pen.  Tennessee orange daisies dot the landscape and the rocks glisten in stripes of gold, silver and orange ochres.

The Peacock  is renowned no more than in Indian art.  Lord Krishna himself was adorned with peacock’s feathers.  Their place in Indian folklore is assured, and  illustrations of the god of war, Shiva,is often with the peacock – a sign of strength. The peacock symbolized wisdom, royalty and power and it still does today, as the national bird of India.

Feel a sense of la dolce vita with our Cosmic Wine Oversized Estie. The fourth installment of our Sparkle series, Cosmic Wine is an elegant blend of deep burgundy, mixed with sparkling purples, pinks, and whites due to the DiamondCast body. Inspired by those lovely warm days where you grab for a bottle of red and your trusty fountain pen, Cosmic Wine is the perfect accompaniment for Summer.

The pen features a cushion cap design giving an airtight seal to prevent the nib drying out, as well as a pleasing experience when capping and uncapping the pen.  The nibs come in five widths, with the option of three custom grinds at additional cost.

The Custom Grinds offer great variety to your writing.  A grind differs from a standard nib as a skilled and experienced technician has, as the name suggests, as the name suggests, spent time grinding the tipping on the nib to give a distinctive line or variation to the nib.

We’ve tried them all and they work,and they work!  Well worth the extra cost.  The Scribe is an often requested grind, brilliant for lettering.  The needlepoint does just what it says – a very fine writing point for tiny writing, but very usable and pleasant to use.  But we guess that the Journaller will be the most popular – easy to use, adds character to writing, can be drawn with – perfect!

  • Esterbrook’s first custom nib, the Journaler was created by Gena Salorino of the Custom Nib Studio in Los Angeles. The Journaler starts life as a medium nib, which is then ground to a stub. The idea is that it’s smooth and friendly enough for everyday use, and gives your writing some flair, without being too large for practical writing.
  • Scribe – The Scribe nib is ground by New York based nibmeister, Josh Lax.It starts out as a broad nib, and is Josh’s take on an architect nib. The Scribe nib is designed to give the writer the flexibility of broad downstrokes and fine horizontal strokes, and can also be used in reverse for additional variation.
  • Needlepoint – The Needlepoint is ground from a fine nib, and is the creation of Colorado-based nibmeister Kirk Speer of Pen Realm.A super-fine nib that’s perfect for Japanese scripts like Kanji and Hiragana, as well as for detailed note-taking, the Needlepoint should be in anyone’s artillery who thinks even an extra-fine could be finer. But it’s perfect for everyday pen users, too! The Needlepoint gives a very precise line good for writing small in tight spaces like the margins of books or maximising the use of a notebook. It can also be very good for artists and sketching, The nib does not grab or tear paper, but writes very smoothly.
