People give steel-nibbed Esterbrooks short shrift—I’m a believer, especially since I found a Master Point 9788 in a parts bag to fit this classic chassis. There are so many different nibs one can buy (and easily swap) that if you have an Esterbrook that doesn’t write well, it’s your own fault. Go out and spend another $10 for a nib of the correct size, slope, and breadth. Once that happens, you’ll love this pen for its cheap price and smart looks. I love mine, and from an Omas-toting snob, that’s high praise.
