Another pen makes a full recovery!

Here is a gorgeous copper J that came in for restoration last week. It had two broken jewels (ouch), some cosmetic surface scratching, and a mangled lever/internal snap ring. Here are some before pictures. These photos are the property of Briant Greer - They are not taken by me and do not belong to me...

Here's the broken top jewel...

You can see the bottom jewel is busted up in this photo...

So, on May 14th this pen was introduced into my shop. Just three days later it's all fixed up and ready to serve for many more years to come!

Here it is in all its glory! What a beautiful pen!

Check this out! This pen is fitted with an awesome 9314-B - Broad Stub Nib! When I first got this nib for tuning it wrote pretty nasty. Actually,  how most of the Esterbrook nibs write before I tune them. It was very dry, scratchy, and had very little line variation for a stub. 
After I tuned it up it's now a super-smooth, wet, excellent writer with lots of variation to spare!

Both jewels all fixed up and ready-to-go!

So, do you need a pen restored? My turn-around time is ultra-fast! This pen was in the shop for only three days!! Basic repair starts at only $25.00! Let me help you out with your pen next!

  1. Way to go on the jewel replacement, you're not playing around now Tyler! ;)

  2. Thanks Bruce! Jewel replacement isn't so bad after you get a good technique going!
