The “J” was Esterbrook’s sleek and suave, classic pocket fountain pen that appealed to the practicality of the times. It was a perfect pen for both men and women, and it still is today. The revival of this 1940’s and 50’s pen has all of the hallmarks of its predecessor, with a few new bells and whistles. The new “JR”(which is the original J reborn) is stylish and refined. It’s compact in size, so you can always keep one in your jeans, shirt pocket, purse, or briefcase. Take it with you wherever you go. Mirroring the original “J”’s production, the new version is offered in three classic colors: Capri Blue, Carmine Red and Tuxedo Black. Tuxedo and Carmine shine bright in Paladium trim and Capri gleams in Gold. And since we hope you’ll hold onto it forever, both the German JoWo nib and the top of the pen have been engraved with the Esterbrook Eternity symbol.
It’s a new take on the small, but mighty pocket pen.

Journaler Nib: The Esterbrook Custom Nib Program is our way to highlight exceptional American nibmeisters and we've asked some of the most prominent and exceptional nibmeisters in our community to create nibs to be a part of Esetbrook's storied legacy. Gena Salorino of the Custom Nib Studio in Los Angeles has created the first edition. An apprentice to nibmeister John Mottishaw of Nibs.com for nearly four years, Gena's nib work is derived from his style, but as she's established Custom Nib Studio, her signature nibs have become well-known in the marketplace for her own trademark style and beautiful handmade quality.
In her own words, the custom nib Gena is grinding for Esterbrook is a "medium stub grind, based on the vintage Esterbroook 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". Available for the Standard and Oversized Estie's as well as the new Camden, Gena's custom nib has an MSRP of $50. This nib will replace your standard nib. Meaning, your pen will come with just this nib and not as a second nib unit.
Scribe Nib: The Scribe Nib is a modified Architect nib that is smoother and more user friendly to those who do not need the sharpness of the true Architect nib. Esterbrook developed this nib with Josh Lax over a period of months so it is fun and exciting and adds another unique nib/writing experience to the line up. Available for the Standard and Oversized Estie's, Josh's custom nib has an MSRP of $60. This nib will replace your standard nib. Meaning, your pen will come with just this nib and not as a second nib unit.
