The “J” was the original Esterbrook’s sleek and suave, classic 1940’s and 50’s pocket pen that appealed to the practicality of the times. It was the perfect pen for both men and women, and we think it still is today. 

Our new “JR” model, introduced as part of our revival of the Esterbrook brand and added to our core line of collections, is stylish and refined without being too fancy.  It’s meant to match your style, as nicely as it graces your hand. With an elegant design, that isn’t fussy, it is compact in size, so you can always have one on hand and with you on the go, wherever you go. 

For the latest additions to the Paradise series, we headed southward to the unparalleled beauty of KeyWest. With a vibrant cultural history, we could think of no place more colorful to highlight the newest JR's, Key Lime and Purple Passion.

The JR models are inspired by the classic 1940's Esterbrook silhouette but updated for modern tastes. Meant to be used and tucked into a shirt pocket, the JR is an everyday pen with some character and a great balance when posted. The acrylic blends, for instance, holds a lot of personality, seamlessly blending complementary tonal hues to give it a bit of life with every turn of the pen. Housing a Jowo nib in EF to Stub 1.1, this is a pen for any writer at any time.What's more, the JR is a cartridge/converter-style pen, making it that much easier to create a master piece in whatever ink you choose.

But what's really exciting about this pen lay in the small details. We think of Key Lime and Purple Passion as sisters, a set that's complementary to one another. On top of the Key Lime pen, you will find a gold finial encircled in purple. On the Purple Passion, you'll find the same,but in a lime green. This little bit of contrast highlights the overall appeal and is again an homage to Key West, where nothing is as it seems and adventures are just waiting to be uncovered.
