About Esterbrook Estie Fountain Pen - Gold Rush Frontier Green Limited Edition
The Esterbrook Estie fountain pen is a tribute to the brand and its storied history. The ͞Estie provides a feeling of 1930s nostalgia, a time when phrases like dingy, dizzy, doggy and brodie were commonplace and when fountain pens were an integral part of life and communication for most Americans.
As Richard Esterbrook was setting up shop on the US East Coast in 1858, one of the most significant events to shape American history was just coming to a close. The Gold Rush brought 300,000 people from around the world to California, making San Francisco the central metropolis of the new frontier. Discovery of gold nuggets in the Sacramento valley ten years earlier stoked the American dream, causing one of the first major gold rushes since the time of the Roman Empire.
The rivers of California had plans for this sleepy part of the country and the glistening waters drew industrialists, labourers, entrepreneurs and dreamers to sift them for ore and to secure their fortunes. This sense of making one's own way was not lost on the English Esterbrook, who was himself trying to make a better life for himself and his family by seeking prosperity in the United States.
To celebrate the Gold Rush's place in American history and to honour Esterbrook's own history, the Esterbrook Estie has been re-imagined in three limited edition gilded colours - Purple Dreamer, Prospector Black and Frontier Green.
The Estie Gold Rush features a comfortable well-balanced barrel produced from blended acrylic that is finished with a high polish and features Diamondcast, a process whereby the acrylic is created with real gem-quality diamonds that are ethically sourced as reclaimed chips direct from diamond cutters. The cushioned cap closure provides a secondary seal to ensure the nib remains wet and ready to use. The pen is fitted with a German manufactured Jowo #6 nib and is available in sizes Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad and 1.1 Stub. Also available on this edition is the new Journaler nib, a collaboration between Esterbrook and Gena Salorino of the Custom Nib Studio in Los Angeles. In her own words, the custom nib Gena is grinding for Esterbrook is a “medium stub grind, based on the vintage Esterbrook 9314M nib. The idea is that it’s smooth and friendly enough for everyday use, gives your writing some flair, all without being too huge for practical writing”.
The Estie takes international standard ink cartridges or bottled ink using the Esterbrook ink converter, one cartridge and a converter are included.
Presented in an elegant cloth covered Esterbrook gift box with a free roll of Gold Rush themed washi tape.
