More Americans learned how to use a fountain pen with Esterbrook than any other pen brand. High schools and secretarial schools often demanded Esterbrook pens for their students because these pens were so affordable and easily customized. This copper colored Esterbrook LJ is a long slender vintage pen. We restored the pen with a new ink sac. It comes with a steel 2968 nib. It writes a smooth medium line if your write slowly, but it gets scratchy on ascenders and descenders when you write quickly. Regardless of what you think of this nib, it is easily replaced by unscrewing. Esterbrook made roughly 3 dozen different nib points. 12.7cm capped.
