This charcoal grey/black resin pocket-sized fountain pen is the Esterbrook JR, short for "J Reborn". A modern take on a vintage classic. It fills via standard international cartridge/converter (included) and has a JoWo #5 stainless steel nib.
The “J” was Esterbrook’s sleek and suave, classic pocket pen that appealed to the practicality of the times. It was a perfect pen for both men and women, and we think it still is today.
Our revival of this 1940’s and 50’s pen has all of the hallmarks of its predecessor, with a few new bells and whistles.
The new “JR” is stylish and refined without being too fancy. It’s meant to match your style, as well as it graces your hand. With a refined design, that isn’t fussy, it is compact in size, so you can always have one on hand in your jeans or shirt pocket, purse, or briefcase. It can be with you on the go, wherever you go.
Mirroring the original “J”’s production, our new version is offered in three colors: Tuxedo Charcoal, Carmine Red and Capri Blue. Tuxedo and Carmine shine bright in Silver trim and Capri gleams in Gold.
And since we hope you’ll hold onto it forever, both the German JoWo nib and the top of the pen have been engraved with the Esterbrook Eternity symbol.
It’s our new take on the small, but mighty pocket pen. Esterbrook endures.
