Esterbrook "Estie" Limited Edition Fountain Pen: Aqua

New this summer is an Esterbrook special limited edition: the Esterbrook Estie Aqua.

At the time  Richard Esterbrook was setting up shop in the 1850’s in Camden, New Jersey, another iconic story was being written, Moby Dick. Maybe he used an Esterbrook pen when he was writing his tale? Maybe not. However, thousands of books about the ocean have been written before and since, so surely some of them were penned with an Esterbrook? We think so!

The Aqua Estie is a fountain pen that celebrates iconic writers, like Melville, John Steinbeck, Ernest Hemingway and even William Shakespeare, all of whom put pen to paper to and were inspired by the mysteries of the oceans.

The spirit of the sea: vast, tranquil, placid, peaceful, ethereal, and dazzling. These words begin to describe the crystal clear waters in every shade of blue, the lush islands, the smell and taste of a salty, briny ocean, the sparkling caps of undulating waves, lazy days spent seeking shimmering shells and building sandcastles as the sun sets over the water in a symphony of color. 

The Estie Aqua embodies all these words and experiences in a writing instrument. Its acrylic captures the mother of pearl. 

“There’s magic in the water that draws all [people] away from the lands, that leads them over hills, down creeks and streams and rivers to the sea." -Herman Melville
