Customer Reviews

Limited Edition All American
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.

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.)

I normally do not write with large pens but this pen is so well balanced that it does not make my hand fatigued at all no matter how long I write.

Mark Twain Crescent Exclusive
I had been arguing with myself about this pen for quite a while when I saw it on the "Final Drop" page at 21% and a bit below the special price. The argument was over. I got the pen.

This one is the Mark Twain Crescent Exclusive brown pen with the fine nib. Inked with Ocean Noir, it makes an irresistible combination. The fine nib is smooth, and it just feels right.

It looks nice too, with the broad unadorned flat top and the gunmetal grey appointments. The material it is made of, as other reviewers have noted, is translucent and allows glimpses of the inner workings of the pen.

Overall, I am thoroughly pleased with the pen.

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.
