I love everything about my amber, stub nib Duragraph. I own a full-page Duragraph ad from a 1924 Saturday Evening Post, and the design hasn't changed much in 90+ years. The stub nib writes wet and is buttery smooth. Know that the Duragraph is a big pen which some may feel makes it a bit cumbersome and top heavy.

Great little pen! Well made threads on the cap felt a little rough at first but after abit they wore in nicely. Writes very well and a fun little pen to have! The fine nib is definitely more of an extra fine I would say I don't mind that but be aware if ordering that nib. You may want to go with a medium or 1.1 stub. All around thou really happy with the pen may buy another!

Mark Twain Crescent Vintage Green
Love the service I received by Ron at Pen Chalet. He had the pen shipped directly from Conklin sine he was out of stock and I received it in only a few days. I love the discounts they offer from time to time. No other retailer does this a frequently as Pen Chalet. The pen arrived timely and worked well right out of the box. Ron kept me informed every step of the way. This is a beautiful pen with a simple and unique filling system. It writes smoothly and correctly. Love it!

Mark Twain Crescent Filler Series
I have enjoyed being a customer of Pen Chalet. I have found them to be a great group to work with. They have excellent products and very good customer service. Which is great. I have also found them to be very competitive.
The Mark Twain crescent filler pen I have also enjoyed. I have found the Conklin product to write very smoothly.
I enjoy a smooth ride as I move across the paper and the Conklins do that. I have found their stub nibs to be the smoothest in their price range and in fact smoother than some pens costing nearly twice as much.
Great product, great team, great store.

Duragraph
A large pen, similar in size to the Pelikan 800. An outstanding value, especially when considering the quality of the materials, construction and presentation. Nicely detailed and trimmed in chrome, with a flared black grip section, ultra-smooth steel nib with a hint of flex. Arrives in a sleeved, textured and padded vinyl box with genuine external stitching, padded faux suede interior and accompanied by a screw-in converter and two cartridges. A lot of bang for your buck.

I have the Amber in F and Stub nibs and the Cracked Ice in F. All are very satisfying to use and a pleasure to handle and behold. These pens are as remarkable in their own right as many in my collection that cost ten times or more to acquire.

Kudos to Pen Chalet for its outstanding service too!

All American
I LOVE the Sunburst and really wanted to purchase one. Like most others I did a little research, finding mixed reviews. The pen is manufactured by Yafa, who also makes the Monteverde, Stipula, and Delta pens. I had a Monteverde Intima Volcano Grey that I was very pleased with and appreciated the quality and writing experience. So, I purchased the All American, it was beyond my expectations. The quality was excellent, and it writes excellent. I loaded it with Daimine Bilberry and it began writing within seconds. After being capped for several days it writes nearly instantly. The ink flows evenly weather writing slow or quickly. The pen is rich looking with a slightly larger than usual diameter. I prefer to write unposted, and this pen rests in the web of my hand without issue or discomfort. I'm extremely pleased with the pen and am considering purchasing another.

I wish I could write this with the pen itself. The nib is so smooth it is a joy to write with, and in addition it has an appearance and feel that suggests a pen of a greater price. This is not my only Conklin and from my experience, they make great pens.

I have a handful of stubs in my collection and this is one of the best stubs I own. It is by far the smoothest and most pleasant to write with. I use it in my Conklin Cresent filled pen and it writes beautifully.

Great replacement nib. I got a Duragraph with the medium nib because I was told the medium runs pretty fine, but after using it I decided that I would prefer a fine nib. This did the job. It's a beautifully smooth fine nib and it came very quickly

Duragraph
I love the Conklin Duragraph pen. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw the picture.

Conklin does a nice presentation, and the directions for inserting the cartridge were very clear.

I'm using this pen to make entries in my planner. The colors go very well with the pen.

It writes like a dream. It is my favorite pen.

Duragraph
I just received the Conklin Duragraph with a Stub nib and was very pleasantly surprised by the ease of creating lines of varying widths. Several other Stub nib pens left me somewhat disappointed with the "scratchy" feel of the nibs. I was beginning to resign myself to accepting that this was simply the nature of all Stub nibs. I was overjoyed when I first wrote with this Stub nib. The Conklin Duragraph is a great value and a real pleasure to use. I am so impressed that I will probably buy one or two other Duragraphs with Stub nibs.

This is a great pen with a lot of look and heft to it. It writes beautifully in the fine point I got. The Yellowstone's vivid yellow makes it a real conversation piece too! It's a very nice pen for the money and Pen Chalet it tops in customer service. I have been collecting pens for 40 years, and I think it is a good value for the price.

The pen is beautifully made, the guilloche on the body cut precise and clear. The gold plating is well done, and matches the black body superbly, providing as rich a visual experience as you do with the writing. I got the stub nib with this one. Though not rhodium and gold plated, the steel nib has a nice glide as it moves across the paper with a nice consistent coat of ink.

Thank you! I've had a finicky Conklin Duragraph for about a year and a half now. From flow issues, to eventual leaking, I just could not solve its issues. Then I noticed there was a small crack at the tip of the nib assembly (where the cartridge/converter goes) and so, as a last resort (because what else could it be?) I ordered the replacement nib assembly. As this is a forest green pen, I thought a black nib would look really nice on it and kind of change things up. Just got the unit in today and so far it seems like the leaking issues have been fixed, but on top of that, this is a NICE writing nib! Perfectly tuned, I didn't have to do any adjustments, and it writes incredibly smooth! This is just what I needed, so thank you!

Duragraph
This was my first modern pen purchase. I have always just used vintage pens that I mostly inherited. I wanted an every day pen to carry that I didn't have to worry about losing or breaking. I wasn't sure about having a steel nib, and didn't expect much for the price. Was I ever surprised. The finish and feel of the pen compare very well with my old Parker Duofold. I have the stub nib, and it writes very smoothly. With the stub, I can't really find any fault with a steel nib, since flexibility isn't needed.

Awesome pen - but be aware that it's quite large, and even a bit too large when posted. My hands are men's medium, and I can write comfortably with the Duragraph unposted. Beautiful, well made, and writes like a dream.
