The Estie has been an integral part of the revival of the new Esterbrook brand. It’s sleek and stately in the hand and a great writing instrument for everyday use and special occasions. In the past two years, pen enthusiasts all over globe have added the Estie to their collections. And while these pens have been lauded in our three time-honored, classic colors and our seasonal offerings in Evergreen, Blueberry, Honeycomb and Lilac, even the Estie wants to truly break out and gussy up from time to time. Introducing the Estie Sparkle. This gem of a pen has had a glitzy makeover and is our most ambitious Estie to date. As Esterbrook is committed to collaborations with US makers, for this limited edition Estie, we partnered with Tim McKenzie of McKenzie Penworks in Charlotte, NC. Wanting to separate himself by making his product unique, Tim did what any innovative, forward-thinking, self-proclaimed science fair geek would do: he added diamonds to the mix! For real. Taking advice and knowledge from his mother, a GIA Graduate Gemologist and his own research, Tim figured out the precise size diamond dust particles needed to allow his pen material to be machined effectively without losing the intense sparkle of the gems. The result is the patent pending DiamondCast. This material shines from within, catches the light, shimmers with each move of the hand across the page and has made a big impression on the pen world. Since we wanted to shout the Sparkle from the rooftops in the biggest way possible, this Estie is available exclusively in our oversize model. Each of the colors, Garnet, Montana Sapphire and Tanzanite, are offered in a limited number of pieces and like the prized diamonds that they’re made from, they are ready to sparkle.
