    Default Hi from Chicago!

    Hi everyone! Happy to be diving into this awesome fountain pen world!

    Iíve gone from zero to: Lamy Safari & Studio; Esterbrook Estie & Phaeton; TWSBI Mini & Eco; Pilot Metropolitan; Edison Pearlette; and a Kaweco Student!

    Looking forward to acquiring a few vintage Esterbrooks some day...

    Ooh I'd love to hear which Esterbrooks you have in your collection. I'm hoping to make it to the Chicago Pen Show in April/May 2020.
    I'm fortunate to work fairly close to the Chicago location of Anderson Pens, and have drooled over their vintage collections.

    Hello Lstow! I have a few J and a couple of transitional Js as well. I love my Esterbrooks. Affordable and dependable!
