“America's Original Pen Company", founded in Camden, NJ in 1858 by Richard Esterbrook. These iconic pens were beloved by U.S. Presidents and artists alike until 1971, when Esterbrook went out of business. In 2018, the brand was revived by Kenro Industries, a company of pen experts. Their mission is a noble one: to imagine Esterbrook pens exactly as they would be made in the 21st century, had the original company survived. We think they've done a terrific job of restoring the heritage of such an important American brand.
A limited, luxury version of the Estie, this very special pen comes with a story:
"As Esterbrook is committed to collaborations with US makers, for this limited edition Estie, we partnered with Tim McKenzie of McKenzie Penworks in Charlotte, NC.
Wanting to separate himself by making his product unique, Tim did what any innovative, forward-thinking, self-proclaimed science fair geek would do: he added diamonds to the mix! For real. Taking advice and knowledge from his mother, a GIA Graduate Gemologist and his own research, Tim figured out the precise size diamond dust particles needed to allow his pen material to be machined effectively without losing the intense sparkle of the gems. The result is the patent pending DiamondCast. This material shines from within, catches the light, shimmers with each move of the hand across the page and has made a big impression on the pen world."
This Sparkle Pen features a gold-plated steel nib in two different sizes and can be used with standard international cartridges or with bottled ink. One black ink cartridge and a compatible converter are included with the pen.
