Described in contemporary advertising (1938 Esterbrook Catalog) as: "A superlatively fine, small pen - super flexible. Blue finish"

The Esterbrook Project describes this nib as the second in the "Art & Drafting" series, this is a straight-bodied, sharp pointed pen with a small oval vent hole located forward close to the tip. Very fine, very flexible. Blue finish.
