Conklin is back with its classic Herringbone design.
The Conklin Pen Company was established in 1898 in Toledo, Ohio, USA, and is regarded as one of the most significant and innovative manufacturer’s from the golden era of fountain pens. Based on the original designs of earlier models, all Conklin pens are hand manufactured by artisans dedicated to producing writing instruments worthy of their legendary name. Conklin pens are valued by collectors and pen enthusiasts throughout the world.
The new Conklin Herringbone series combines the vintage appeal with modern bold style and elegance. The unique Herringbone pattern itself is achieved by using a very precise computerized engraving machine to cut the deep pattern on airplane-grade aluminum. This elegant pattern, reminiscent of the Conklin crescent shape, is seen underneath a special translucent colored acrylic and coated with several layers of epoxy for protection and brightness. The coin atop the cap touts a relief of the “Conklin Est. 1898” logo. The back of the crown is engraved with the “Herringbone” model name. The heavy chromium clip also is engraved with the legendary “Conklin” trademarked name and font and the center ring is engraved with the Conklin “C” surrounded by four Conklin crescent shapes on each side.
Available in Fountain Pen with 18ct gold nib, Capped Rollerball and Twist-action Ballpoint in five colors; Deep Sea Blue, Slate Grey, Sparkling Silver, and Sunrise Orange.
The fountain pen has a flexible two tone nib personalized with the Conklin brand name, the historic “Toledo, Ohio, USA” mark and a special crescent shaped breathing hole. The 18ct gold nib is both smooth and dependable, available in Fine and Medium. Filled by either cartridge or converter (included).
