The pictures online of these pens definitely don’t do them justice. I bought the tuxedo black version and it arrived today. I opened up the package and my jaw dropped! I thought I was receiving a marbled white/black/grayish pen. I was wrong. Turns out it’s a black or dark dark grey pen with an amazing, surprisingly gorgeous body that has an iridescent almost fiber optic silky marbled finish to it. I purchased the broad nib size and it’s my first broad nib. I was nervous but knew the Esterbrook pen brand is highly regarded and reliable and has incredible attention to detail and quality. The broad nib is just as I pictured it! Nice and juicy wet, writes a broad line, continuously reliable, and super smooth. Pick one of these up. You won’t be disappointed! A truly well-made pen.
