Conklin Reviews

All American
I love the All American! I ordered the Brownstone in a 1.1mm stub. It looks gorgeous! The brown resin is high quality with a lot of depth and flair. The threads are secure and smooth for the cap. The clip and nib are the same dark black color - they match and they look excellent. The nib is smooth and ink flow is good right out of the box, and didn't need any adjustments upon arrival (a common issue that has occurred with Conklin nibs for me). The pen is substantial without being heavy, and is by far my most comfortable pen to write with (my hands fit well in large men's gloves for reference). I love the Brownstone pen - it's a gorgeous pen that looks like a plastic cigar and writes well. The All American is one of my favorites, as I have 3 of them (and counting).

This pen is one of the most visually pleasing pens I have ever had. The nib writes fantastic and the weight is great. I have small hands and know that posting makes the pen too long for me, however, it is not top heavy and feels pleasing. Great pen at a great price.

Got it in the mail over the weekend, beautiful colors, very lightweight for such a hefty pen. Ink flowed very smoothly even on the cheap paper we use at work. like the "push clip" feature on the cap. will have to put this one under lock and key as the wife already wants to take it from me!!! or I can use that as an excuse to buy me another pen. ;)

I like this pen a lot and I would say the bast part op it is the nib. The only drawback is I'm used to snap caps but it's growing on me.

The brownstone is beautiful! I chose the fine nib. The fine nib writes more like a Western fine. I assumed it would write more like a Japanese fine. That's what you get for assuming, right? Overall the nib is buttery smooth on fine paper. It also writes well on the garbage I'm forced to use at work, although it really shines when writing in my Rhodia notebooks! I had some hard starting and was a bit discouraged at first. I was using majestic blue by Diamine. A buddy of mine said that Diamine tends to run dry. So, I flushed the pen really well and put in some of my "never let me down" Pilot Iroshizuku purple and BAM, she runs wet and never dries out!
The All American is a fatty, which I love. Its size reminds me of a Nakaya writer I used to own. It's an extremely lightweight pen as well. The only minor issues were some quality control problems. For instance, the cap and body have to line up just right before the cap will screw onto the body. Also, the clip was off center but I was able to get it lined up straight with a bit of gentle bending. Overall I'd buy another one in the future.

Duragraph
Simply put, I was very pleased with the Conklin Duragraph fountain pen. "Once upon a time" I had an original Crescent fill Conklin, wanted another Conklin in my collection. It does everything a good fountain pen is supposed to do, i.e.: write smoothly for a good writing experience. I'm a "Happy Camper".

Duragraph
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!

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.
