Esterbrook Estie Gold Rush Prospector Black Gold Plate Trim Fountain Pen Medium. This is the standard size Estie model.To celebrate the Gold Rush's place in American history and honor Esterbrook's own history, the Esterbrook Estie has been reimagined in two limited edition gilded colors, beginning with the release of the Prospector Black and the Purple Dreamer. As Richard Esterbrook was setting up shop on the east coast in 1858, one of the most significant events to shape American history was just coming to a close.
The Gold Rush brought 300,000 people from around the world to California, making San Francisco the metropolis of the new frontier. Discovery of gold nuggets in the Sacramento Valley ten years earlier stoked the American dream, causing one of the first major gold rushes since the time of the Roman Empire.
The Gold Rush Estie's are available in limited quantities and will be gone just as quickly as the gold boom was. The Esterbrook Estie Gold Rush Standard Size is 5.9 inches long and features a #6 German JOWO gold plated stainless steel nib. The cap and barrel are made from a patent pending Diamondcast material by Tim McKenzie of McKenzie Penworks in Charlotte, NC that uses reclaimed diamond particles from diamond cutters, incorporating it into a material that shines and glimmers with light in each move of the resulting pen. The pen literally sparkles in bright light. The cap has the Estie cushion cap closure that requires a little push while twisting it on or off.The trim is gold plated.
