Esterbrook #8440 Superfine nib and Pelikan Blue-BlackThis week’s favorite fountain pen and ink combination was another vintage pen. It’s an Esterbrook J with a #8440 Superfine (aka Cartography) nib and Pelikan Blue-Back ink. I can’t really use the nib for fast writing since it’s so thin. If I’m careless I can stab the paper, so I pay attention and write a little slower when I use the nib, But it’s worth it.
