Esterbrook Estie Scribe Nib Fountain Pen
The new Scribe nib is crafted in N.Y. by nibmaker Josh Lax. The Scribe is like an architect nib that is ground into a wedge to give broad cross-strokes and narrow downstrokes.
The Esterbrook Estie collection pays tribute to the brand’s storied history with standard size fountain pen models in vintage-style acrylic resins, and one oversized, or Senior model, in black. The Estie fountain pen is equipped with a high-quality, German-made nib and features a unique cushion-cap closure. To add more nostalgia to the collection, the Estie is the first fountain pen from Esterbook to accept the MV Nib Adaptor. After months of research and testing, a special adaptor was engineered to allow select modern day Esterbrook pens to hold vintage Esterbrook nibs, a huge number of which are still available in the after market. The Adaptor gripping section is contoured in a shape similar to Esterbrook grips from the early 1950s and 60s to provide comfort and writing control. The threaded front section will accept most Esterbrook nibs and is designed to allow seamless ink flow from a cartridge or converter.
