Excellent work horse pen. Use it for conferences and long note taking. I have a couple of the same model. Would buy again.

All American
I really liked the pen Colkline All Amerika. Large, solid, beautiful. Original and dignified appearance. Comfortable. Someone may seem very big, I like it.
The store left a good impression. Quick, detailed answers. Courtesy of staff.
Bad that there is no direct delivery to Russia. I would like to order goods more often.

Herringbone Series
I chose this pen because of its rich looks. Indeed, when I received it, the luxurious look and feel of the herringbone finish is wonderful. It writes very smoothly and has a nice substantial weight to it which I value.

Herringbone Series
I got the Navy Blue when it was on sale. I only had one other Conklin and I wasn’t fond of it due to the subpar omniflex nib but I wanted to give it a second chance.

I got this with a fine nib and it wrote beautifully and smooth. I actually accidentally placed it into my pen storage case for 2 weeks before I remembered it was inked again and it seems to have a sweet spot I didn’t notice the first time around. It’s probably punishing me for forgetting it.

So far, I’m pretty pleased with this pen! Plus, it looks quite nice.

Duraflex Limited Edition
Smooth. Slick. Sharp. Sturdy. Stellar. And stunning.


Size-wise, it is almost exactly as long as a Noodler's ebonite Konrad in my accumulation of pens and 0.026" larger in diameter right below the cap, measuring 0.496 where the Konrad measures 0.475". (If you speak Metric, that's 12.5984 mm vs. 12.065 mm.) This pen is anexceptionally smooth writer, and it does display some line width variation with varying pressure as I write. This is a worthy step-up from a starter pen.

All American
I'm fairly new to fountain pens so forgive me for geeking out over my new pen. This time it's the Conklin All American in tortoise. It's just stunning and exactly what I wanted: a vintage-y feeling fountain pen. The barrel is lovely, and I really love the screw-on cap. "Conklin" is stamped on the gold-tone clip: very handsome indeed. Now for the stub nib; I hate it. Lucky for me I was able to swap it out for a fine nib which writes smoothly and perfectly. Thank you, Pen Chalet, for enabling me:)

The combination of vintage design and modern substance is a great combo. The carbon fiber is matte so don’t expect a flashy shiny body.

Conklin has changed nib manufacture and they seem better. Still some flow problems so may be the feed. I like Conklin products and have three pens that can use this nib. Also they are screw in types which is very helpful.

Mark Twain Demonstrator Crescent Limited Edition
I love this pen. I purchased the clear demonstrator with rose gold trim and was pleasantly surprised to find that it is bigger than the Conklin Crescent Filler black/rose gold, red demonstrator, and yellow anniversary demonstrator pens, both in length and girth. It is a large pen! And I like that. A lot. It’s 14.6 cm capped and 16.5 cm posted, which compares to the rest of the Crescent Fillers that come in at 14.1 cm capped and 16.3 cm posted. It’s a solid pen that feels good in one’s hand.
The nib is decent for a stainless steel nib. And replacement nibs from Conklin are easy to obtain and swap out. The filling system works well, but whatever ink you choose becomes part of the look of the pen as it’s visible in the clear sac in the barrel. As with all demonstrators that I’ve used, the clear section that holds the nib and feed becomes colored with the ink you choose.
The bad is that ink that any ink that makes it into the cap is clearly visible and hard to clean out an overnight soak in water. Also, on mine the clear cap end came off, but I attribute that to a stint in the ultrasonic cleaner (used to clean the aforementioned ink in cap syndrome). I re-affixed the cap with no problems. Other than that, no issues.
Although I wonder why Conklin didn’t advertise the differences in this pen as selling points, I’m very happy at the surprise when I purchased one.

Mark Twain Crescent Exclusive
I purchased the Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Exclusive with the checkerboard pattern. It's an LE numbered 98/98. It's wonderful writing instrument and not fatiguing to write with for long hours. The ink flow is generous and I love the Omniflex nib.

Duraflex 120th Anniversary
I put my 120th Anniversary Conklin Duraflex fountain pen in to my collection. I took it out of the box to admire it and placed it carefully back in the box and the outer box.
I like the looks of it and the feel of it. I have not used it so I am ranking its functionality as above average because it should be based on the history of Conklin pens.

Duraflex Limited Edition
I have to give this high marks. This is my first Conklin Duraflex with an Omniflex nib and I loved it. This is a wet versatile nib that functioned beautifully for my calligraphy. The Sunstone body is lovely. Honestly, pictures don't do it justice. And the rose gold just made the whole pen stand out. I highly recommend this pen. It is a fantastic value as most Conklin' pens are. To date I own the Turquoise, Cracked Ice, and several other colors of this style of Conklin. I will keep collecting these limited editions because they are just stand outs in the pen community.

Mark Twain Crescent Filler Series
Roll on muddy river, roll on... This pen takes you back in time and to the trails of Sawyer and Finn. The Mark Twain Crescent is a fun pen. The crescent filler is easy to function and rests easily in the hand. I love eye-catching pens that enable conversations and the Mark Twain Crescent Filler rises to the challenge. Pen Chalet offers a great selection, with great prices, and exceptional service. Thank you.

Replacement
Bought this "fine" Conklin nib for a Conklinetta Senior, a sweet pen that seemed to me to write rather wet with a "medium" nib. Nothing wrong with writing wet but I don't always use high-quality hard paper, and everyday paper draws ink from a pen very fast. Then your writing is not as tidy. One can write faster, or use a finer nib. Easy as pie to unscrew the original nib and feed, and screw in the new. These Conklin nibs are rather long, and that's a good thing - it gives me a little feeling of flex or bounce as I write - it's not a "flexible" nib, but it doesn't feel like writing with a spike. Pen Chalet prices are reasonable, and service is fast, as always.

Word Gauge
As a collector (45+ years) I have a variety of Conklin FPs and particularly enjoy the Word Gauge models I've acquired. The quality is even better than the price point would suggest, nibs are consistently excellent. Pen Chalet is my "go to" initial source for pens and inks. My only concern about Conklins today is YAFA's customer service which, IMHO and experience with a pricey Delta Skeleton (before the close down), amounted to ZERO assistance, i.e., "We don't repair them."
