Introducing our most regal Estie to date: the Estie Peacock.
For this Estie we turned to the Peacock’s fabled place in the mythology of India, where the Peacock has been revered for thousands of years.
The pride of the peacock has long been depicted in temple art, writings and music. The peacock’s place in Indian folklore cannot be overemphasized: one of the most important deities, Lord Krishna was known to have adorned his head with the peacocks’ feathers and in illustrations of Shiva, the God of War, he is often accompanied by the peacock as a sign of strength. The peacock symbolized wisdom, royalty and power and it still does today, as the national bird of India.
To illuminate the magnificent colors of the peacock, the Diamondcast material for these writing instruments was developed in collaboration with McKenzie Penworks and gleams just like the glimmering feathers of this majestic bird. Available in rollerball, standard and oversized fountain pens, the Peacock Estie is available in extremely limited quantities, making it just as rare as the glorious avian it represents.
Available in traditional fountain size, Oversize fountain, and rollerball. All trim and appointments are gold plated and standard nib sizes apply, including EF, Fine, Medium, Broad, 1.1 Stub and the Custom Journaler ($50 up charge).
- Comfortably balanced fountain pen in a complete range of points for the way you write.
- Cushion cap closure provides a secondary seal to ensure a wet point.
- Ink is filled by a cartridge of ink or a converter, which acts like a syringe to draw ink from a bottle.
- Measurements: 5.9″ Closed, 5″ Open, 6.7″ Posted.
- Sold separately, the Esterbrook MV Adaptor with Vintage Nib gives you a vintage nib experience with the modern Esterbrook pen. You can fit any vintage Esterbrook nib unit into this adaptor, and use it with your Estie fountain pen. (MV Adaptor is also available without a nib).
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 Esterbrook’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 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”. 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.
