Vintage Pens: 5151: Conklin: 40P
You don't find chasing this crispy on pens from the 1920s on a regular basis. However, our Conklin 40P crescent-filler looks almost like it rolled off the assembly line yesterday. The only problem with it is a dent in the gold-filled topper tassie. Originally intended to be worn on a necklace or watch fob this short vintage pen is a powerhouse. We restored it with a new ink sac. The crescent device has "Conklin" written on one side and "Crescent" written on the other side. It has a nice size 4 14k gold nib that writes a smooth extra-fine line. Happily enough, it has a little flex, too. Click the headline for close-ups. 11cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 5612: Conklin: Mark Twain Crescent
Genius squared! That is what this modern Conklin Mark Twain fountain pen is. The first wave of genius was resurrecting the Conklin brand and Crescent filler, which is what this pen is. The second wave of genius was from the guy we got this from who replaced the modern nib and feed with a vintage Conklin Endura nib and feed! The feed doesn't fit properly in a technical sense, but it still works. It is just a little too long. You will write a firm medium line with a hint of feedback. This color pattern is called "peanut butter." The pen is in great working order, and looks like it is in mint condition, excluding its nib alteration. Comes with original box and papers. 14cm capped.
