About the Conklin Duragraph

The Conklin Duragraph fountain pen was orginally launched in 1923 and was considered the "definitive" pen. The name comes from a combination of the words durable and graph.

The newly redesigned Conklin Duragraph brings a new fresh look to this timeless fountain pen. The pen is handcrafted from quality resins in three classic finishes. The top of the cap is embellished with Conklin Est. 1898. The band on the cap is engraved with the Duragraph script logo and three Conklin Cresent logos on both sides.

The Conklin Duragraph fountain pen comes as a cartridge/converter style pen with the ink converter included.

Conklin Duragraph Video Script

This is the Conklin Duragraph fountain pen. It comes in a blue faux leather box. We have the Conklin logo printed in gold on the top of the lid. Inside is a nice, soft, white satin interior with the Conklin logo, once again in gold, on the underside of the lid. Included with the pen is two ink cartridges that uses a standard universal ink cartridge, and it also comes with information about Conklin brand and the warranty and use and care guide for the pen.

This is the amber version of the Conklin Duragraph fountain pen. I also have the Cracked Ice version of the pen. In cracked ice, you can see a speckled pattern throughout the barrel of the pen with those white section with black lines running throughout.

The pen has chrome accents and has a nice, large chrome clip, small chrome band at the top and then a black cap at the very top with the Conklin logo printed on it, established 1898. And the amber color, you can see the orange and black patterns. Each of these pens will be unique based on the resin that they use and how that's turned.

On that chrome band, the bottom of the cap, we have Conklin on the front side and then Duragraph really small on the bottom with the Conklin crescent moons. And then the bottom of the barrel is a thin chrome band and a small black cap. The cap is threaded on screws on and off, it can be posted on the pen. It comes with a black grip section and a chrome-colored nib with the gold-colored Conklin logo on the nib. And this is a cartridge converter style pens, so that grip section unscrews from the rest or the barrel. Included with the pen is an ink converter, as well as those cartridges I showed you earlier, so you can use bottled inks with the pen or ink cartridges, which ever you'd prefer.

Conklin is a U.S. brand, makes some great writing instruments. I really like the look of this new pen. Get your Conklin Duragraph fountain pen at PenChalet.com!

Excellent pen, wonderful hand feel. 'Quick' is how I describe pens that can keep up with my sketching, and this is that!

The pen overall is very nice, but the nib itself is very stiff and hardly flexes at all (I bought the model with the flex nib, of course). It takes quite a bit of pressure to get any flex out of the nib, and even with significant pressure, the variation in line thickness is very modest... you'd hardly notice it if you weren't looking for it. Otherwise, it's a nice enough pen; if you don't expect it to flex much, the flow is good and reliable, and it's comfortable in the hand.

I like this pen and the fine point. Attractive and writes well, but somewhat bottom-heavy when cap it posted. Like the fact that replacement nibs are available for Conklin- May order one with my next order..

I admit I was a little surprised to see a round breather hole in the nib instead of a crescent-shaped one, but that in no way detracted from the pen's performance. Once again I am thoroughly pleased with another Conklin pen. I am up to eleven of them now.

I purchased a Cracked Ice Duragraph with stub nib in the end-of-year inventory reduction sale. The pen itself is very nice. I like the size and feel, and it balances well in my hand. I did have one problem, though. The nib was extremely rough, hard to write with, and ran dry constantly. Looking under magnification I realized the tines were of uneven length and didn't appear to have ever gone through any finish grinding or smoothing. I contacted Pen Chalet and the sent me out a replacement nib immediately and at no cost to me. The new nib works great and the pen is now a joy to write with. I'm now very happy with both the pen itself and with Pen Chalet's customer service. Thanks!

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.

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.

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.

FAQs about the Conklin Duragraph

Q:
I want to know the difference between the fine and medium nib. What are the mm of each? Is the fine point considered an extra fine point or standard?
Asked on Apr 20 2018 by Roger
A:
The fine nib is approximately .5mm and the Medium is approximately .7mm. The Fine nib is a Western Fine, which would be considered a standard fine.
Q:
I must be totally overlooking it, but does it come with blue or black ink ?
Asked on Aug 14 2017 by Scott
A:
The Conklin Duragraph comes with two in cartridges. One blue and one black.
Q:
what is the finish on the 1.1 stub nib? 2 tone, silver or black?
Asked on Apr 19 2015 by Samuel
A:
The Stub nib on the Conklin Duragraph come in either black or silver. The stub nib silver version is only silver while the other nib sizes offer the 2 tone nib. We currently have the black stub nib in stock.
Q:
Can the nib be removed from the feed for cleaning and can the threaded converter be disassembled for cleaning and greasing as well?
Asked on Dec 15 2014 by Kevin
A:
Yes, the pen disassembles for cleaning. The grip section unscrews from the barrel of the pen. The converter then unscrews and the nib and feed section unscrews from the grip section as well.
Q:
Is the cartridge converter screw-in or push-in?
Asked on Nov 5 2014 by Steve
A:
The Conklin Duragraph Fountain Pen comes with a screw in type converter included with the pen. The pen also takes a standard international ink cartridge.
