Additional information:
  • The new Estie dates back to the nostalgic 1950s in Camden, New Jersey. Ice cream parlors were a gathering place on warm summer nights. This special edition is inspired by the most delicious dessert of the summer, ice cream, and, most important of all, with a cherry on top. In honor of this delicacy, the Estie Maraschino is a symbol of American culture: the ice cream parlor, with a juicy red addition to the Esterbrook line.

"Estie-mation"

Here, Esterbrook have re-invented the “Estie” into a behemoth of a pen - the oversized fountain pen - it dwarfs many of its contemporaries by at least 8mm, is girthy, & not for small hands (tho’ there are smaller versions to accommodate such a scenario).
Classic cigar shape, finished in ‘Maraschino Red’ - a salutation to the cherry that adorned ice cream in 1950’s American drive-thru’ parlours - & that’s precisely the point: a throwback to simpler, uncomplicated times, & perfectly apposite to an era when Esterbrook was in their heyday.
The resin runs throughout cap, barrel & section; the nib is a well tuned stainless steel # 6, & writes effortlessly. I chose a fine nib which is true to its designation; the silvered accents are Palladium, & compliment the resin very well. There is little to identify the pen, save for a simple signature in white on the barrel, just below the line of the cap clip.
A medium weight pen, it does have a good heft in the hand, is solid, & the resin warms nicely to your skin; this is very comfortable.
When uncapping the pen, do be aware, the cap has a spring-loaded mechanism, so ensure you have a firm grip on that cap. There are no drying out issues, albeit, I have only ever left the pen unused for two days at a time.
A delightful writing instrument !!
