Esterbrook Paradise JR Pocket Fountain Pen - Gena Nib
JR Pocket Pen: PARADISE COLLECTION with Gena Nib
Because even the most refined fountain pen lover needs a tropical vacation, we are pleased to introduce our first limited edition, seasonal offering of “JR” pens, the Paradise Collection.
The “J” was the original Esterbrook’s sleek and suave, classic 1940’s and 50’s pocket pen that appealed to the practicality of the times. It was the perfect pen for both men and women, and we think it still is today.
Our new “JR” model, introduced as part of our revival of the Esterbrook brand and added to our core line of collections, is stylish and refined without being too fancy. It’s meant to match your style, as nicely as it graces your hand. With an elegant design, that is not fussy, it is compact in size, so you can always have one on hand and with you on the go, wherever you go.
The Paradise “JR” Collection is the “JR” Pocket Pen on the rocks with a salted rim and a twist. Offered in three limited edition colors, Lemon Twist, Orange Sunset and Blue Breeze, think soothing breezes, warm ocean currents, bungalows, painted buoys, panoramic views for miles, mangroves, marinas and lounging for hours with a cocktail in hand and the mellow melodies and vivid lyrics of Jimmy Buffett floating through the air.
And since we hope you’ll hold onto it long after you ditch your flip flops, sunglasses, and day drinking, both the German Schmidt nib and the top of the pen have been engraved with the Esterbrook Eternity symbol.
It’s our tropical take on the small but mighty, ready for summer, pocket pen. Cartridge and Converter included. Cap can be posted and features a New Top finial design.
Gena Salorino of the Custom Nib Studio in Los Angeles has created the first Esterbrook custom ground nib called “The Journaler” or the “Gena”. The custom nib is perfect for those who love to Journal or give their daily writing some flair. It’s a smooth and easy to use medium stub grind (ground originally from a medium nib), based on the vintage Esterbrook 9314M nib. You can experience the Gena nib on all Estie Standard and Senior (oversize) fountain pens for a $50 upcharge.
