Vintage Pens: Conklin Endura

Vintage Pens: 0813 Conklin Endura
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: F
Price: $449.99
The 1920s come roaring back to life with this senior sized Conklin Endura fountain pen. This lapis blue wonder looks pretty sharp with a little discolored darkening at the tail and near the section threads. It has no brassing. Plus, you can still most of the orange-red pin stripe painting in the cap and barrel. We restored this with a silicone ink sac to minimize future discoloration. The only trouble is that these ink sacs don't seem to hold the ink as well as the rubber ones do, and it might be a little leakier than normal. However, many might prefer keeping this pen more as a museum piece than daily user. Its 14k gold nib rides the line between fine and extra fine. Plus, it has a little feedback. 13.2cm capped.
