Customer Reviews

Limited Edition All American
Beautiful pen! Writes perfectly right out of the box - smooth nib with just the right amount of feedback. The All American is a big pen, but lightweight. Very comfortable and a pleasure to write with. The acrylic is much prettier than the pictures convey.

Mark Twain Crescent Exclusive
This is a review of the Mark Twain Crescent Exclusive in transparent yellow. I have mine inked with Monteverde Documental Black. Writing is physically effortless with the black fine stainless steel nib. It glides and swoops across the page like a bird in flight.

Mine arrived delivering copious quantities of ink. A little nib tuning got it delivering adequate quantities of ink, and now it is perfect.

Currently available with either the stub nib or the OmniFlex nib, replacing the nib is a matter of unscrewing the installed nib and screwing in the replacement if one would prefer a fine or medium nib. Monteverde offers a broad nib with a black finish, a broad nib with a polished-steel finish, and an extra-fine nib with a polished finish that will fit, and Conklin offers an extra-fine nib with a polished steel nib that will also fit.

This is truly a remarkable pen.

This is probably my favorite fountain pen. It has such a smooth writing experience. The flex nib adjusts with my own hand pressure. I have a movement disorder and this feature for me works quite nicely.

This is a fantastic pen. The only drawback is that it can be pretty top heavy with the cap on. To prevent fatigue, I just leave the cap off while using it.

Duragraph
When my Durograph arrived I just loved the look and feel of the pen and the turquoise color. I did not love the flex nib and wished I had ordered my usual fine or extra fine. The nib railroaded and then dead stopped after every few words or, at most, few sentences, if I was lucky. But I loved everything else about the pen so much that I kept on using it. As long as I just wrote normally it wrote fine. The only problem was it started out quite wet and gradually got drier. Ink starvation, I suppose, but a milder case as that goes. However, gradually, over time, I flexed on a few letters here and there without problems, so I flexed more often. And the pen also remained consistently wet. In short, the feed cannot sustain flow with the pressure needed to flex for very long but it can do so for longer than it could initially. It is now an excellent daily writer with some line variation and enhanced shading. Robert Oster Fire and Ice is a perfect match for the pen, both color- and performance-wise! I don't know if the pen I got had the old or the newer and reportedly improved durables nib, but I'm not going to buy another to try and find out. I think I have finally learned to lower my hopes and expectations for modern flex nibs. When I really want good and consistently good flex, I'll use my vintage Waterman, or buy another vintage pen. I could have bought more than one with the money I've spent on modern flex pens that don't really flex as advertised.

Duraflex Endless Summer
This is a terrific pen! For YEARS my always-come-back-to pen has been a (15 yrs!) old Waterman Phileas. I've only had the Conklin for a month, but I believe retiremt is now possible for the Waterman. This pen is a pleasure to hold, not too heavy or thick. The finish on the body feels rich, and the pink-gold trim is classy. I have big hands so appreciate the comfortable grip, slightly bulkier than the Phileas. I did pay attention to others' cautions and flushed the pen before using. My first ink choice wasn't a good fit, so to speak. The Sailor ink in there now is working well. No skipping, dry starts, etc... I am pleased with the large capacity cartridge, too. I am very happy, and find myself trying to think of things to write or draw just so I can use it. Plus, its bright colors make it easy to find on my messy desk!

Limited Edition All American
Conklin AA is my favorite pen under $100. You do get a lot for the money and that custom blue/black resin is beautiful. Very understated chatoyancy, not too flashy, very classy.
A great addition to my Raven and Brownstone.
The Conklin stub is a good nib that writes smoothly and lays out a good amount of ink. I am using it with Parker Quink, amazing what you can get out of a black ink with a stub.
Only available at PenChalet ... buy it before it’s gone.
(How about more custom colors? Green, Red, Purple)

Duragraph
I got this pen with the flex nib for the Black Friday Sale. I am very pleased with it. It has quickly become one of my every day carry pens. I use Pilot ink in it and find it writes extremely well. My only complaint was that the nib is a bit longer than what I am used to (TWSBI Echo), but once I got to used to it, this pen quickly became a go-to for me. I would gladly purchase another, especially at the black Friday sale price. Pen Chalet shipped this quickly and securely. I will definitely do business with them again.

All American
I’ve been a fan of the Conklin All-American for some time now, this one is my 3rd. I especially like the shape, size, and smooth lines. I expected the brown to be a different shade, and there to be a bit more turquoise, however that doesn’t detract from the pen. I find that this is a relatively common experience when making a purchase based on an image on a screen alone. Finally, I was pleasantly surprised to find, especially for the price, that this is a limited edition numbered pen.

Great customer service. The nib that came with the pen was scratchy and skipped. Pen Chalet took care of it right away by sending me a replacement nib, which is working great. I really appreciate the speed and ease of working with their customer service department.

Replacement
I have gotten three of these nibs to get the nib I want on the pen I want: a steel fine, a black fine, and a black stub. All three nibs have worked perfectly well with no more effort necessary than unscrewing the existing nib and screwing in the new one.

I got an Amber and a Forest Green pen during the Fountain Pen Days sale. Paired with (approximately) matching Monteverde inks (Copper Noir and California Teal), they are truly great pens.

On receipt, they both wrote wetter than I liked with their fine nibs. Repositioning the nib a little further out on the feed took care of that, and now they write as well as my Limited Edition Crescent Filler does -- which is to say, extremely well. They are both keepers.

IMHO I think these pens are one of the best values there is. Slightly oversize, very comfortable in the hand. Excellent writers, I have several of them and have not had to do any nib tuning at all. I love these pens.
