Advanced for its time and featuring a reliable method for filling ink, the Conklin Crescent Filler® attracted attention from many prominent figures of its time. In 1903, renowned American author and humorist, Mark Twain, became the official spokesman for the Conklin® brand. In celebration of Conklin's innovative design and Twain's passion for the fountain pen, the Mark Twain Crescent Filler® is now available in a new and electrifying shade, Vintage Blue.

Each Crescent Filler utilizes Conklin’s groundbreaking original design, one that still works as effortlessly as it did a century ago. Crafted from bars of solid, vibrant blue resin dapped with black flecks within and paired with polished silver accents, Vintage Blue is a beauty to behold and is tastefully engraved with Mark Twain’s signature along the band. Each pen still maintains the original Conklin® spring loaded rocker clip that was patented in 1916, the perfect addition to any pocket, jacket, or coat.

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