Conklin Duragraph/Duraflex History
A visual look back at all of the Conklin Duragraph (and Duraflex) Fountain Pens that have been available to us. The Duraflex term tends refer to an individually numbered limited edition out of 1898, whereas the Duragraph generally refers to regular editions or non-numbered special edition runs.
