Esterbrook | Estie Gold Rush Collection
.
As Richard Esterbrook was setting up shop on the east coast in 1858, one of the most significant events to shape American history was just coming to a close. The Gold Rush brought 300,000 people from around the world to California, making San Francisco the central metropolis of the new frontier. Discovery of gold nuggets in the Sacramento Valley ten years earlier stoked the American dream, causing one of the first major gold rushes since the time of the Roman Empire. The rivers of California had plans for this sleepy part of the country and the glistening waters drew industrialists, laborers, entrepreneurs and dreamers to sift them for ore and to secure their fortunes. This sense of making one*s own way was not lost on the English Esterbrook, who was himself trying to make a better life for himself and his family by seeking prosperity in the United States. To celebrate the Gold Rush*s place in American history and honor Esterbrook*s own history, the Esterbrook Estie has been reimagined in two limited edition gilded colors, beginning with the release of the Prospector Black and the Dreamer Purple._______________ This offering is also available as a rollerball and for the first time, this special edition Estie is available as a ballpoint pen. The Premium Gold Rush Esties will all be available as Standard and Oversized gold-trimmed Fountain Pens with standard Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad or 1.1 Stub nibs.______________________________ Estie Fountain Pens now available with Custom Nibs!!!! Gena Salorino of the Custom Nib Studio in Los Angeles has created the first Esterbrook custom ground nib called The Journaler or the Gena The custom nib is perfect for those who love to Journal or give their daily writing some flair. Its a smooth and easy to use medium stub grind (ground originally from a medium nib)based on the vintage Esterbrook 9314M nib. You can experience the Gena nib on all Estie Standard and Senior (oversize) fountain pens. The Gold Rush Esties are available in limited quantities and will be gone just as quickly as the gold boom was.
