My first love in fountain pens was vintage pens. To me, that’s what fountain pens are all about. Of course, there are many amazing modern pens out there, but there’s just something special about using a pen that’s 50 or even 100 years old.
I’ve seen a lot of Fountain Pen Day giveaways, but honestly don’t know if I’ve seen a single one giving away a vintage fountain pen. I want to change that!
One lucky winner will receive this beautiful gray Esterbrook SJ fountain pen. It was probably manufactured in the 1950s, making it almost 70 years old! It’s been restored and works and looks great. I’m also including three different Esterbrook nibs: a Fine, Medium and 2314-M Relief Stub.
This giveaway ends on Friday, November 10 at 11:59pm PST. The winner will be notified on Saturday, November 12. Good luck!
One last thing… this is my first giveaway using Gleam. If you run into any problems entering the contest, please contact me and let me know.
Hi, my name is John. I’m a Colorado-born professional photographer who recently moved back to Denver after spending 3 years in San Francisco. I’ve been using and collecting fountain pens for over 20 years. I got my first one in college when I got bored taking notes with ballpoints and pencils. Since then I’ve bought and sold hundreds of pens, but have consistency in my love of Esterbrooks.
