This limited edition Conklin Endura fountain pen is made with real abalone shell, covered in a clear round resin, and is complemented by rose gold-plated trim. The cap screws to open/close and screws on to post. The Endura 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 silver Omniflex flexible steel nib for variation in line width.
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.
Each Conklin Endura comes in a gift box with two standard international short ink cartridges (1 blue and 1 black), a standard international converter, and is warrantied for life by Conklin’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Limited edition, individually numbered out of 1898.
