Conklin is proud to introduce the Empire, a fountain pen with vintage appeal and elegance mixed with a modern bold style. The fluted cap and body design feature a swirly black and white acrylic resin (which we think resembles cookies 'n cream!), and it opens/closes with Conklin's new twist magnet lock system. It comes with a silver #6 steel nib, and it fills via standard cartridge or converter (included).

For over 120 years, Conklin has been applying methods new and old to each production of our luxury writing instruments, creating captivating collectibles loved by beginners and enthusiasts alike. Drawing inspiration from Conklin’s original models and the rich heritage of the brand, Conklin is proud to introduce this new collection to the lineup.

Empire, meaning absolute sway, was the inspiration behind this daring new design. Torpedo shaped with tapered ends, each Empire is made from quality acrylic resins and is engineered to perfection, creating its distinctive and unforgettable fluted cap and body design. A timeless new model, the Empire not only gives each writing instrument a unique shape but an ergonomic and sculpted feel, perfect for daily writing. Paired with engraved silver accents, the clip displays the legendary Conklin trademarked name which is painstakingly hand painted in blue lacquer, while the cap band is painted red.

We are excited to exclusively offer this pen with a German-made nib from Bock. For over 75 years Bock has been manufacturing parts for fine writing instruments and we’re confident that you’ll love how these nibs enhance your writing experience! This exclusive offering only applies to the Extra-Fine, Fine, and Medium nibs, and does not apply to the Omniflex nibs. Please note that the Bock nibs do not have an imprint to note the nib size.
