We often speculate about the history of a pen, and if you click they headline of this Esterbrook SJ pen, you will see an obvious clue. Notice the nib? Its a "Durachrome" 1555 Gregg nib. Gregg was a handwriting method back in the day. This pen was designed specifically for use by secretaries, journalists and other serious daily writers using the Gregg handwriting system. Esterbrook J-series pens were among the most popular of the 1950s, teaching an entire generation how to write with an ink pen. We think of the SJ designation as "Short J-model" as opposed to the regular J and LJ, "Long" J. We restored this crack-free pen with a new ink sac. Light wear from daily use. Its steel nib writes a medium-broad line with some feedback. 12.5cm capped. 12.1cm capped.
