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."

I adore the look and function of this pen. My only complaint is that is too large in diameter.

Mark Twain Demonstrator Crescent Limited Edition
I have wanted one of these since the first time i saw it. Love the styling and the way it looks, but hadn't been able to pull the trigger until a couple of weeks ago. Loved how it looked even more once I had it in my hand, inked it immediately after cleaning the nib, and was horribly disappointed to find the nib extremely misaligned. It was nearly impossible to write with. I really hate bothering a company for problems with something, but I contacted Pen Chalet the next day, and they sent me a new nib a couple of days after that. They were extremely helpful and told me how to replace the nib and super quick with their service. When the new nib arrived, it was really nice to write with after replacing. It's a little dry for my taste, but that is just a matter of taste. Major compliments to the customer service team, especially Jen for all their help.

All American
I've heard this a lot, but the truth is Conklin's All American is my absolute favorite pen. I have this pen in both the orange and brownstone and have zero complaints about either. I use a medium nib and find the pens - no matter how long I take between uses - are ready to write on the first stroke. I just find these pens excellent in all aspects. The smooth wet nib just makes me happy. And the colors are amazing.

Nozac
This is a very nice writing pen. I find it comfortable, sturdy, and my medium nib is perfect in wetness and smoothness. I love the way it writes. The color "Toledo Red" is so amazingly complex. Pictures don't do it justice. This is going to be one of my favorite everyday carries. Honestly, I own quite a few Conklin Pens and I love each and every one of them.

Flawless. Beautiful pen and design. The nib glides incredibly smooth and is easy to hold. Ink reservoir is not very large but it does still hold enough ink.

Duragraph
This pen was a heavily discounted Final Drop Return pen. I was a bit worried about getting it at such a steep discount, but I know Pen Chalet has a great reputation and they said it was working. That being said, I love the Ice Rock Duragraph and have wanted one for a long time. When I got it, as advertised, it had been inked up and needed a bit of cleaning. The converter still had a bit of ink in it and the cap was wet inside. All that was not unexpected as it was sold as a returned inked pen. However, I cleaned it very well, flushed it, and inked it up. It writes like a dream and I feel kinda like I stole it. :)

Came in ahead of time even if shipping to Canada, Nib was perfect right out of the box, large pen just as expected. Stellar service. Could not ask for more. Even my friend who are not into fountain pens compliment me on the pen.

All American
This Conklin All American is by far my favorite pen in my collection. The nib was just a little scratchy (F) when I got it, but one full fill of the converter later and it is super smooth. I chose the Sunburst color with Diamine Steel Blue for the ink and am loving the combination.

Duraflex 120th Anniversary
This is a great pen for the money. It looks great, is pretty large, and the flex nib works quite good.
One has to use some force when pushing the flex, but not too much. Sometimes the feed has an issue keeping up with the flex, but overall it is very good.

The first pen sent didn't work. The ink didn't flow. Jen from Customer Service was extremely helpful. She sent a a new pen, which worked perfectly, plus a return mailing label so I could return the first one at no cost to me. I can't recommend Pen Chalet highly enough.

All American
WOW what a nice pen! I jumped on the last Pen Chalet deal to get a Black (M) and a Brownstone (M) 50% off.
The Black is really black :) Brownstone has a lot more depth than pictures suggest, a beautiful pen. The black nib looks really sharp on both pen.
The pen is BIG, but since i don't post no problem, 15.5mm barrel fits perfectly in my mid size hand and the pen is relatively light considering.
I matched the Brownstone with Robert Oster's Bronze ink, beautiful combo. Great writer, nib has good flow and wetness but needs a tap to get started oftentimes.
I highly recommend the All American; even at full price a great value IMO... I am getting the Blue next.

Duraflex 120th Anniversary
This is an outstanding pen which I was lucky enough to purchase on sale. Out of the box, it writes exceptionally smoothly. The flex nib makes it easy to add a little 'flair' to my handwriting. The colors are muted and very tasteful. Nothing but accolades for this pen!

Duraflex 120th Anniversary
Good and relatively inexpensive pen with a rose gold plated solid steel semi-flex nib. I purchased in medium and although there isn't much line variation due to pressure, there is some on the downstrokes and it has a subtly pleasing effect, especially with cursive handwriting. The variation is slight when compared with Roundhand written with a Brause nib, but it definitely results in a more pleasing script than a writing with an inflexible nib. The variation also allows some shading with inks as ink can pool when the tines are spread, which can also create a pleasing effect depending on the ink used. I have charged the included converter with Diamine Oxblood ink and the pen writes smoothly and wet and glides over the paper. I would like to get a vintage flex pen as I have heard the nibs allow greater line variation, but this pen is relatively cheap and makes a very good day to day writing pen. The rose gold furnishings complement the marbled blue acrylic body. The pen is a medium size, is quite traditional in its styling and is light due to the plastic body. I very much like the marbled blue finish that ranges from almost black through to sky with it mostly appearing somewhere between Lapis Lazuli and Royal Blue. The included ink is also very good - a good deep blue with a hint of purple. I prefer blue black for daily writing but if you are into blue inks, I would recommend the Conklin 120th Anniversary Blue ink as much as I recommend the pen to anyone looking to write with some line variation. It's a great pen for the price and I'd recommend this pen, and Pen Chalet, to anyone considering buying a pen with a soft flexible nib.

Duraflex 120th Anniversary
Absolutely beautiful barrel and nib on this anniversary pen. Great amounts of flex capability and always starts immediately and writes beautifully, regardless of the type of ink. Slightly lighter weight than I had anticipated, but great for longer writing sessions for me. I always receive compliments on this beautiful blue swirled pattern with rose gold accents.
