Pre-Owned Pens: 5886: Conklin: Duragraph Omniflex
Flexi steel nibs can be a lot of fun, especially for more artistic writing. Our modern, orange Conklin Duragraph sports a steel "omniflex" nib. It writes from extra fine to about 1mm. It takes a little practice to master it, as it is a little on the stiff side. The pen comes with its original box and papers. Also included is a screw-in standard international converter. Only light traces of wear mar this pen's cap and barrel. 14cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 5767: Conklin: 40
One of the first unique filling systems that caught our attention in vintage pens was the Conklin Crescent. Extremely simple, easy to use and a "profanity saver" according to Mark Twain. We restored the Conklin Crescent 40 with a new ink sac. We also gave it a blackening treatment to help remove the chocolate hazing and restore its shine. In anything other direct light such as in the photos, it looks nearly black. It has a firm nib that mostly wants to write a fine or extra-fine line rather dryly. Yet, with careful and gentle application of pressure, it can be a semi-flex nib that writes up to 1mm wide. No cracks. The chasing and imprint are worn but still easy to see.

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.

Pre-Owned Pens: 5910: Conklin: All American
Notice anything a little different about this preowned, modern Conklin All-American fountain pen? Click the headlilne for a close-up. Yes. Its original owner was a bit of a tinkerer and retro-fitted it with a size 5 or 6 original 14k gold Conklin nib! It isn't a 100% perfect fit, but it writes very well from a fine to 1.25mm medium line! You just need to check its alignment with the feed from time to time to make sure it doesn't come out of place. Conklin called the color design of this All American "Brownstone." It is a lovely acrylic with deep brown to amber flecks. You will get the pen, its boxes, papers and a standard international converter. 14.3cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 5607: Conklin: Duragraph
Black veins running through a creamy grey granite color makes for a really attractive color scheme that we bet vintage Conklin would be proud of. This modern Conklin Duragraph is a very nice pre-owned pen. Ours is in excellent condition with minimal wear. Click the headline for a close-up. It comes with its box and standard international converter. You will write a fairly smooth, dry fine line with its steel nib. 13.9cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 5605: Conklin: Duragraph
Resurrected from the grave, Conklin has come back to us for nearly 20 years! This stunning Conklin Duragraph is a revival pen that uses a standard international cartridge or converter. It comes with a converter and its original boxes. It looks almost new. Best of all, it has the upgraded Omniflex nib. Click the headline for a close-up. Frankly, the nib isn't that flexi. It is pretty rigid. However, the point is a bit stubby and can get you from a skinny to a 1mm wide line. It will have some feedback. 13.9cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 5603 Conklin Nozac Word Gauge
Filling Mechanism: Piston Filler
Era: 1980-present   Fountain Pen Nib Size: M
Price: $699.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 5603: Conklin: Nozac Word Gauge
In the 1930s, Conklin and Sheaffer each developed a piston filling mechanism that required just a single stroke piston with a gasket on it to create vacuum pressure to fill a pen's entire barrel with ink. It was a revolutionary design. Conklin called its pen the Conklin Nozac. Some of the pens were imprinted with an ingenious gimmick of a word gauge to show how many words were left in the pen before a refill. This limited edition recreation of that pen is a beautiful, oversized masterpiece. Tiny silver flecks look like stars in the night sky of this translucent blue and amber fountain pen. Numbered only 110 of 898, the word gauge purports to hold 7 million words per refill. We have not tested that gauge's accuracy, but we did test fill it with water and it works well. The insides are a little stained from past blue ink. You will write a smooth medium line with its 18k gold nib. Minimal wear. Complete with boxes and papers. Click the headline for a close up. 14.8cm capped.
Vintage Pens: 5151 Conklin 40P
Filling Mechanism: Crescent Filler
Era: 1920-1929   Fountain Pen Nib Size: SF
Price: $199.99
Vintage Pens: 5151: Conklin: 40P
Didn't Shel Silverstein have a poem called, "Almost Perfect, but Not Quite"? That sums up our Conklin 40P. Nice, shiny black hard rubber. Deep, crisp chasing. Clear but a little uneven factory imprint. Fully restored with a new ink sac. You will even find that this vintage pen has a semi-flex nib that writes an extra-fine to 1mm line. Yet, if you look closely at the gold-plated crown on the cap, to the right of center is a big ol' dent where someone once dropped this magnificent old fountain pen. No cracks or other problems. 11.4cm capped.
