Described in contemporary advertising (1938 Esterbrook Catalog) as: "A superlatively fine, small pen with superlative flexibility. Finest action. Blue finish"

The Esterbrook Project describes this nib as the smallest of the five "Art & Drafting" pens, this pen has a small, straight body with a sharp delicate point. The vent hole is a slit with an intruding diamond form, far forward close to the tip. This pen is very flexible and fine. Blue finish.

There are no additional versions of the Esterbrook #354 Art & Drafting Pen in the Chappy's Nibs collection, as pictured below (blue-finish).
