I just inked up my vintage Esterbrook with a bright red ink and it's a real joy to write with. I wish I'd remember the model name, it's one of the ones that were dirt cheap back in the day and while small it's just great.
@cosullivan I bought mine already restored with a new sac so unfortunately I don't. I've seen many links throughout the years to different sellers, the only one that comes to mind at the moment however is andersonpens.com in the US. But I'm sure there are many more in other places as well.
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
