Vintage Pens: 3066 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 3066: Conklin: Endura
The one thing Conklin got way better than Parker and Sheaffer in the 1920s was color. Have you ever seen the amazing texture and color of one of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" paintings in real life? They are stunning, and the swirling blue of this medium/standard size Conklin Endura looks almost identical! Orange paint (mostly) remains in the accent rings on the cap and barrel. There are no cracks, either. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The clip and cap band have some brassing. Writing a fine line, the original nib and feed have a little feedback. You can see a deep scratch on the top tine of the 14k gold nib when you click the headline, but that is only a scratch—not a crack. The barrel has a strong factory imprint. 12.6cm capped.

Vintage Pens: 3038: Conklin: Endura
The one thing Conklin got way better than Parker and Sheaffer in the 1920s was color. Have you ever seen the amazing texture and color of one of Van Gogh's "Starry Night" paintings in real life? They are stunning, and the swirling blue of this junior size Conklin Endura looks almost identical! No paint remains in the accent rings on the cap and barrel. There are no cracks, either. Tiny, extremely shallow bite marks ring the tail. This vintage pen has been fully restored with a new ink sac. The clip and cap band have some brassing. Writing an extra-fine line, the original nib and feed have a little feedback. The barrel has a strong factory imprint. 11cm capped.

Pre-Owned Pens: 2473: Conklin: Symetrik
Blue flames shimmer below the deep-blue surface of this stunning celluloid pen. Rotate it under a light, and you will be captivated. One of the most attractive of the modern Conklin brand, we really like this Conklin Symetrik with silver trim. Reviving the vintage pen model name, this Symetric fills with an included converter or standard international cartridges. Also rare on early modern Conklins is a 14k gold nib! Reasonably smooth it can write a wet medium line with a hint of flex. It is a little inconsistent, as downstrokes tend to go fine or extra fine. No cracks and almost no wear! 14cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2468 Conklin Nozac
Filling Mechanism: Cartridge/Converter
Era: 1980-present
Price: $99.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2468: Conklin: Nozac
Modern Conklin Nozacs are much larger than many of their vintage counterparts. This one is what we would consider oversized, with beautiful sapphire blue-sparkly swirls on a pearly white celluloid. Silver-plated trim and a spring-loaded pocket clip are nice accents to this preowned luxury pen. Of course, some people might go ga-ga for the two-tone 14k gold nib that writes a smooth medium line. This pen fills with standard international cartridges or the converter that comes with it. The fountain pen barely has any wear at all. 15cm capped.
Pre-Owned Pens: 2465 Conklin Cushion Point
Filling Mechanism: Ballpoint
Era: 1980-present
Price: $29.99
Pre-Owned Pens: 2465: Conklin: Cushion Point
How do you deny the beauty of this modern green-and-white Conklin Cushion Point pen. It looks new and only has minimal wear. The silvery trim looks great. We included a brand-new Parker-style refill with the pen. It is a larger pen than it looks in the photo, although it isn't oversized. Nice width for daylong gripping and writing. 14.6cm.
Vintage Pens: 2600 Conklin Endura
Filling Mechanism: Lever Filler
Era: 1920-1929
Price: $249.99
Vintage Pens: 2600: Conklin: Endura
From the heyday of the vintage pen era comes an oversized Conklin Endura in black and bronze! Even the original painted yellow stripes are 99% intact! It is a beautiful pen which we restored with a fresh ink sac. The trim has some brassing, as you might see in the photo. Click the headline to see a better close-up. The bronze in the cap is a little duller than it is in the barrel, but it still looks great. The back of the cap has a worn "dent" line in it, but it is difficult to see unless someone is looking at the pen closely. Strong imprint, light wear on the rest of the pen. The original inkfeed and 14k gold nib write a great, smooth, firm extra-fine line! 13.2cm capped.
