Customer Reviews

Limited Edition All American
My pen arrived super fast and was extremely well packaged. I will admit that my experience with Conklin has been hit or miss, but with Pen Chalet behind my purchase I went ahead and made the decision to buy the pen. I have learned a fair amount about tuning and smoothing nibs, going so far as to order another nib for the other Conklin I own (a Duragraph in the cracked ice color), so I was at once curious and apprehensive about this new flex nib. My pen has the flex nib and gunmetal furniture; I know this is not a high dollar pen but it is really a great looking pen. The marbled blue next to the gunmetal just really makes for a great combination and everything about the pen is well done and the resin used seems just as nice, if not better, than any Visconti. But the nib is awesome. I wasn’t looking for that much flex, just liked the way the nib looked to be honest, and it is one unique pen. I smoothed a few spots but overall this pen has been filled with iroshizuku Yama-Budo since I received it last week. I am on my third fill now, to be precise. As always, Pen Chalet is the best around and I am really happy with the pen. You are getting far more than a $70(+/- retail) with this pen, it feels like a $500 pen to me. Oh, and if you’re on the edge with this hypeflex nib or whatever they’re calling it, jump off - you won’t be sorry.

Nice solid body, it's a pretty thick pen. The clip is attached to a spring or something so you can actually press one side to open it. I really love that detail

The color is slightly more muted than I expected but I still love it the details are pretty intricate.

The threads are fantastic and smooth

Included Conklin converter actually screws into the body. I've read it can fit international standard but I haven't tried that yet.

I dont post this pen. Without post it's pretty balanced has some nice girth. But posted it'd be too heavy.

I got the medium nib it wrote smoothly but it was very very wet so I swapped it out with a #6.

Feeder looks to be the same as any other jin hao pen surprisingly. I couldn't find any spare Conklin converters to buy online

If I bought again I'd probably buy fla fine nib price is pretty high for this pen I'd probably save for a Vanishing point but I got this at an unbeatable price so I'm very pleased with the pen and it's aesthetic.

I love the colors and designs that Conklin offers. The Sunburst Orange is very detailed, with swirls and bits of orange throughout the pen. A pleasure to write with. I am pleased to add another Conklin to my collection.

Stylograph
To start with the design looks nice with a mix of the blue and white. The pen has a nice feel to it; the weight and balance. I ordered my Stylograph with a Fine Nib. This pen is very easy to hold in your hand. It is also very easy to write with. My Fine Nib is a very smooth writer, all be it a little wetter and thicker writing fine point than a couple of my other fine point nib pens. I would still recommend this pen to anyone.
Whether or not you choose to post the cap, does not effect the balance or weight of the pen.
I do have on little negative. I wish the band on the cap on which Stylograph is written was a little smaller.

Duraflex Freedom
I bought one then bought this one. Great nib and pen. Nib is smooth and writes beautifully. Although it will flex, I find it perfect to write with just as it is.

As always, great customer service from Pen Chalet!

Limited Edition All American
This is a gorgeous pen to say the least. Well balance with decent weight and girth.

The blue colour is perfect and when you rotate the pen, it has different shades. Just pretty and cannot explain with words.

The B nib is not broad, but this is easy to fix.

The customer service is exceptional. It was the September holiday and still got a reply and Pen Chalet is so accommodating.

It got this limited edition during promotion and with free shipping, I have not complaint and just a happy fountain pen user.

Thank you Pen Chalet.

Duraflex Freedom
Everything about the Duraflex Freedom says upgraded. It looks and feels like there's thicker, higher polished lacquer on it. Great balance posted or not. Gives a smooth fine line writing experience without having to think about it. Ready to flex? It is ready, too. I love flex pens and this one snaps back to the crisp fine line faster than any I have. It's highly responsive. The flex lines are beautiful and smooth. I have to really push it to get it to RR or starve. Even then, it recovers super quick and it's off to the races again. Writing with this Duraflex makes it look like I know what I'm doing. I'm so impressed!! It easily beats my Pilot Falcon. Never thought I'd say that.

I only gave a slight ding on style due to being overloaded on Americana stuff lately. No biggie.

I love the look of this pen. It looks way more expensive than the price you pay. I tried the new branded Omni-flex nib. they have definitely made an improvement in the flex of this pen. With practice you can get some great line variation. It also writes great without using the flex feature. You can write with a light hand and get a very fine line and then with pressure the line width expands. I look forward to practicing my calligraphy with this nib.

Conklin is easily one of my top brands in the pen community. They have been around a long time and have a long standing of good quality pens. Great style and unique filling systems. They may be a little heavier than other pens, but that doesn't bother me. Their nibs are top notch...no scratching, skipping, or flimsy construction. Very reliable performance everytime I use it. I like reliability in the products I use and that's why I like Conklin.

Duragraph
First fountain pen in years, and it's really great! Fun to write with this one. Read a few reports about skipping, but have used it quite a bit recently, and only experience skipping when my grip on the pen slowly tilts to the side so the nib simply doesn't contact the paper. Easy fix is to just change my grip back to the correct one! Great product. None of this would have worked nearly as well if I hadn't spoken with your great rep--I wish I still had his name as he was fantastic!

Very happy with the All American. The pen is on the large side, which suits me well. Well balanced, and very comfortable to use for long writing sessions. Seems well constructed and durable as well. This was my first purchase from Pen Chalet, and the experience was very positive.

Empire
I have the Stardust white version of this fountain pen. When shown to family, all remarked how it looked like it was carved from marble or similar stone. The sparkle effect is invisible due to the lack of contrast between the base color and the sparkles. Don't get white if this effect is important.

The nib dries out overnight, and needs some moisture to prime it for writing again. This is not unique to this pen. So far I have owned Pilot, Noodlers and now Conklin fountain pens, and they all have this behavior. I use the pen daily, but after it sits overnight, with the lid securely fastened, it will not write without moisture applied to the nib tip. I cap the pen tightly and immediately after each use. The cap on this Conklin pen is magnetic, so the closure is very tight, and the Noodlers was screw on, ensuring it was tight as well.

All these experiences have been with several Sailor Jentle inks. It is possible that the ink is at fault, so I did not rate the pen down because of this.

Duraflex Limited Edition
The Conklin Duraflex has turned out to be one of my favorite fountain pens, but there's a key thing you have to do before writing (otherwise it would be a very frustrating pen): Prime the feed. In other words, constrict the converter piston a little, or squeeze the cartridge a little, so that it pushes ink to the nib and feed (not enough to make it leak or drip, of course). It's worked like a dream every time I've done this.

If that's not enough, try widening and deepening the ink channels on the feed with an x-acto knife or something similar. (I did this *before* regularly priming the feed, so I don't know for sure if priming is always enough.)
