Esterbrook Estie Fountain Pen - Raven - Piston Filler. This pen features a button-piston mechanism that draws ink into the barrel with just the press of the button—a fast, easy built-in filling experience new to Esterbrook pens and debuting with this version of the Estie Raven. A clear ink window in the barrel allows you to see how much ink you have left.
The Estie Raven is an opaque, matte black pen with black trim. This pen was inspired by ravens, which have long held an almost mystical fascination in the human psyche. From Edgar Allen Poe to Norse mythology, depictions of ravens have long interested both humans and Esterbrook's storytelling. Because of this history, Esterbrook was inspired to create a pen that has all of the subtle, mysterious charm of the intelligent and curious corvid. In their words this pen is "as stunning as it is simple, as intriguing as it is classic."
The Esterbrook Estie is part of Esterbrook's classic core collection of fountain pens. Made of acrylic, it is well balanced and comfortable to hold both unposted or posted for a larger feel. The cap features a spring-loaded mechanism to help prevent the nib from drying out.

Esterbrook began manufacturing nibs in the US in the mid 1800s, but the 1930s were monumental for them, as they introduced their first interchangeable nib system in 1933. The interchangeable nibs gave the user many options for writing, whether in school, business, or for personal use. Today, a similar system is reborn with the Estie and Esterbrook's specially engineered MV Nib Adaptor, which delivers a vintage nib experience with a modern shape Esterbrook pen.
