Conklin pens is a true American brand, founded in 1898 by Roy Conklin, an inventor from Ohio. They made their name in the early 1900s with the development of the Crescent filler pen, famously adopted by Mark Twain. Their Duragraph and All-American ranges, developed in the 20s and 30s, offer an affordably priced option for a marbled resin pen. Fountain pens are available in a fine, medium and stub nib and take international cartridges whilst ballpoints accept "Parker style" refills.
Designed as an affordably priced pen, the Conklin Duragraph retains a feeling of luxury with its beautifully marbled handmade resin. Its flat top design was originally created in 1923 and remains unchanged, embellished with the Conklin logo. The fountain pen has a gently fluted grip section, available in nib sizes from fine to stub, and comes with a converter and two cartridges. Also available as a ballpoint pen, presented with black ink.
With its rounded cigar shaped profile, the “All-American” was inspired by Conklin’s original models of the 1930’s. A chunky profile offers a comfortable feel in the hand, and comes in a range of beautifully marbled handmade resin colours. The fountain pen has a gently fluted grip section, available in nib sizes from fine to stub, and comes with a converter and two cartridges. Also available as a ballpoint pen, presented with black ink.
The Heritage collection pays tribute to the pioneering spirit of Roy Conklin and the golden age of fountain pens. All Heritage pens feature an inbuilt converter dispensing with the need for ink cartridges. The Heritage is available in 3 styles. The Word Gauge has a large view window with numbered gradations indicating how many words can be written with the remaining ink. The Sleeve Filler works like an integrated squeeze converter, and the Conklinetta Senior uses a simple push button mechanism with a lock to prevent leakage.
