I did not think this drop would return. I just don't see anything that justifies the drop price, not to mention the ridiculous MSRP.

Kenro’s new pen, the Estie, is a very good pen. If you are thinking about a fountain pen, don’t buy this one.

Where is this pen made? If it is made in the US = Yes, but if it is made in China = No.

Hi, I didn't mean to be cynical. I just wanted to clarify where this pen is made. Don't get me wrong, there are awesome pens that made in China but in this case I wouldn't pay $300+ for it. There are better China made pens out there that cost much less and with great quality, so buyers beware!

Judging by the overall design of the pen, it bears similarities to those made by grifos, so perhaps Italy? Knowing the history behind the new Esterbrook though, I’m personally gonna pass on this one. That, and it’s a lot of money for a steel nib.

Massdrop If you wanted to sell the new revived Esterbrook with something like a package deal for the Estie with a MV adaptor included I would jump on it but this is just well a terrible deal.

I’m also a little annoyed with massdrop on their nib description—“18k gold plated German made iridium nib” ... cmon md. You know better—you’re just trying to capture some novices with too much money to spend, and you should know full well that ANY FP enthusiast is going to see right thru that description.

Well, they have at least one category lead and they must read at least SOME of the discussions. You’d think they’d pick up a few fundamentals—it’s just good business. My guess is that Kenro or esterbrook or whomever wrote that nib description line and told them to run it as-is.

I don't think there was much "tell" in the conversation. I generally go the manufacturer's website before getting serious about any MD drop. What I typically find is identical product photography and ad copy for a given item. I think we give MD too much credit when we assume they do anything more than locate and plug items into predetermined classifications (communities). However, in their defense, they ain't get'n paid to reinvent anybody else's wheels.

My immediate inclinations skewed towards appreciation for all the toiling away to capture the reserved , unassuming, and humble nature of the 16th president of these united states. Truly a testament to the man himself. Not to be a pushover for its distinguished aesthetics, I went looking for reviews and price comparisons. The fruits of my exhaustive 5-minute search were less than exuberant. Specifically, commentary in this thread from Fountain Pen Network lays bare multiple criticisms of the effort from several esteemed contributors. To be fair, it seemed no one in the thread had actually purchased or even held the pen, however their disdain seemed to stem from a familiarity with the company, pictures, descriptions, and general fountain pen knowledge. Ultimately, I think it would be fair to summarize, this pen was viewed as a hard pass. One attribute particularly poorly received was the quality of the Lincoln likeness on the cap. It appears that this was intentional as it was replicated from the image of Lincoln in the original 1866 advertisement for the original Esterbrook Lincoln commemorative pen. Appreciation of that fact remains in the eye of the beholder. Pricing: Fountain Pen Hospital: $639.00
Amazon: $795.00

Shamefully overpriced and one of the ugliest pens I've seen on MD--and MD knows a thing or two about ugly pens!
