Estie - Cobalt with Palladium Trim
This is really a beautiful pen, the shape and colour is striking. The weight and balance make it a real pleasure to write with. The fine nib is very smooth to write with and I found it to be a little than other fine nibs I've used. The MV adaptor is a great addition as it opens up the option to use different Renew-Point nibs.
Esterbrook Estie Fountain Pen - Cobalt with Palladium Trim with Firm Fine Nib
This pen is a beauty in every way. A stunning pen to just twirl in you hand and watch the light play off this beauty. The firm fine nib is a real joy to write with, the nib glides across Rhodia and Tomae River paper. I like fine to extra fine nibs and this is one of the smoothest easy writer I own and I have quite a few. I'm writing with Blackstone Barrister Blue-Black Ink. I like the ink as it is very quick drying but if you stop writing for a bit you will have to take a couple tries at getting the ink flowing again. The pen seals tightly when closed and does not dry out between uses. A wonderful pen at a wonderful price. I will have to try the adapter and some vintage Esterbrook nibs.
