It's alive! It's alive! Somebody really wanted to keep this Esterbrook pen working. We think it is a combination of an SJ barrel in that wonderful, vibrant copper color, a black hard rubber section and a chrome SM cap! Whatever it is, we restored it with a new ink sac. There is some heavy scarring of the tail of the pen from posting. Its upgraded steel 9556 nib writes a firm, wet fine line with a little feedback. The cap only takes a 1/4 turn to snug tightly. 12.1cm capped.
