It's about the nibs
This Estie revival is nicely designed and finished, but the real excitement is the adapter for older nibs, in particular the historic Esterbrook Renew Point series. Otherwise there are less expensive pens with the same JoWo steel nibs, such as the Jinhao 159 which retails in the United States for about $12 (the complete pen, not just the nib). Make sure you include the adapter in your order, and a handful of vintage nibs which Anderson Pens also sells. I was delighted to find that the older steel nibs write better (smoother with more interesting line variation) than many modern nibs.
