Since 1922, German pen maker Diplomat has employed traditional methods to develop and create writing instruments, driven by the belief that handwritten communication helps people to develop meaningful personal and business relationships. Diplomat’s line of Esteem fountain pens reflect the company’s philosophy of striving to facilitate more frequent and open communication by offering comfortable, durable, smooth-writing pens that people will enjoy enough to carry and use daily.
Note: At checkout, you can select a finish from Black Lacquer, Brushed Chrome, Cobalt, Cornflower, Matte Black, or Orchid; as well as a nib size from Fine, Medium, or Bold. You can also add a Diplomat standard size converter (+ $5).
Diplomat’s Esteem fountain pens are fitted with proprietary stainless steel nibs bearing the company logo, but work with international standard cartridges and converters. As compared to most stainless steel nibs, Diplomat nibs offers a bit of springy flex that enable a slight amount of line variation writing without muting feedback. Diplomat’s logo also appears on the finial atop the pen’s cap, which is made from brass and offers a secure and satisfying click when closed or posted, and is fitted with an internal plastic sleeve to protect the barrel’s finish. The brass barrel, which offers enough space to carry a spare cartridge, is available in a brushed chrome, black lacquer, or colored matte finishes.
