The Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler fountain pen features a crescent filling mechanism, much like its vintage predecessor. These fountain pens utilize Conklin’s groundbreaking original design that still works as effortlessly as it did a century ago.

This fountain pen is offered with your choice of a reliable, smooth-writing German made JoWo #6 black steel nib in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, or 1.1mm stub, or the new JoWo Omniflex flexible black steel nib for variation in line width. With six nib options, you are sure to find a selection to fit your handwriting style.

Our note about the JoWo Omniflex nib: This flex nib will allow you to experience more bounce and softness than writing with conventional nibs. You can achieve some line variation with a little additional downward pressure, to a point. We recommend flexing the nib to about twice the line width that you would see without using any pressure. Please take care to avoid pressing too hard on the nib, as over-flexing could prevent the tines from returning fully to their original position and decrease or stop your ink flow.

Establishing the Conklin Pen Company as a leader in American writing instruments, the Crescent Filler became one of Conklin brand’s signature pens and changed the industry forever. Founder Roy Conklin from Toledo, Ohio, patented the design for the first self-filling pen in 1897, causing his company to thrive. They gained the approval of author Mark Twain, who became the official spokesperson for the Conklin brand.

These fountain pens utilize Conklin’s groundbreaking original design that still works as effortlessly as it did a century ago. Each pen is engraved with Mark Twain’s signature along the band, and maintains the original Conklin spring loaded rocker clip that was patented in 1916, which is the perfect addition to any pocket, jacket, or coat.
