Esterbrooks return!

Ever since the Other Half looked over my shoulder one evening and said she liked that pen on the computer screen, I’ve been looking for a Green Esterbrook J.

The irony is that I once had 8 Esties and sold them all :p A101s and a few Deluxe models. I only had one Blue Esterbrook J, and with a cracked jewel at that.

My eBay purchases were all unsatisfactory, so I decided to just stick with FPN and got lucky. And as several warn on FPN, once you get one it’s hard to stop…

Anyway, three recently purchased Esterbrook J pens just turned up:

– early Green (no registered trademark symbol) with a pleasant, equally early-looking 2284 nib;
– Olive-looking Grey with a 2668 nib, flat feed; and
– Blue, also with 2668. Needs lots of cleaning though.
