Esterbrook is on a roll with fresh new colors in their Estie line. I like how Esterbrook is branching out with more “boutique” resins, and bold colors. Their latest is the Esterbrook Estie Aqua Pen Collection. It practically lets your words pour out onto the page. As a special edition, the Aqua isn’t part of the everyday collection, so it will be gone before you know it. However, it’s not a limited edition, so it’s not numbered. Fascinated by tales of the sea, this aquatic themed writing instrument is truly inspiring. Did you know that the Esterbrook Estie Aqua Pen Collection is designed to be a tribute to iconic authors who wrote about the sea, ocean, and other such open water?
First of all, the Esterbrook Estie Aqua Pen Collection is made of a deep, pearlescent light blue resin. This resin captures the depth of the ocean in its marbled finish. I like the contrasting gold trim, and gold backfilled “Esterbrook” lettering.
Secondly, this special edition collection is comprised of many options for your writing enjoyment. Starting with the oversized and standard size fountain pens, there are so many nib options. Whether you choose the extra fine, fine, medium, broad, or 1.1 stub, there’s something for everyone. These steel nibs expel ink coming from either a standard international size cartridge or converter. Yes, this is exactly like the other “sibling” Esties. I can easily imagine using Monteverde’s Sweet Life Iced Cookie ink, Monteverde’s Capri Blue, or their Caribbean Blue in this Estie Aqua to perfectly match.
Third is the rollerball, which refills easily with Schmidt 888 or 5888 rollerball refills. Both fountain pens and the rollerball are equipped with a threaded cap and section for quick and easy removal. Yet at the same time, this keeps the cap on securely while waiting for use.
Finally, the ballpoint is wonderful to hold. It employs a smooth twist-action retraction mechanism for easy activation. In addition, the Estie Aqua ballpoint refills with my favorite Monteverde Parker Style ballpoint or gel refills.
