About the Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Superblack

The Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Superblack fountain pen collection features a new technology creating the darkest super black coating on the pen's opaque body. The end result is a dramatic example of historic beauty and innovation only on Conklin Pens.

The Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Superblack fountain pens are made of solid brass with the surface undergoing a new technique to create the "superblack" coating and achieve an almost 100% matte black appearance. The unique and stunning superblack finish absorbs over 99% of visible light at normal incidence which is what makes it darker than any other known substance.

Each Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Superblack fountain pen is fitted with a premium stainless steel JoWo nib in varying nib sizes.

When Conklin's founder, Roy Conklin, patented the design for the first self-filling fountain pen in 1901, the company introduced the Crescent Filler™. This filling method utilizes a crescent moon-shaped metal piece extending from the side of the pen. Writing enthusiasts can easily (using only one hand if preferred) self-fill the fountain pen with bottled fountain pen ink.

To fill, simply depress the crescent piece to engage the internal pressure bar and collapse the built-in rubber sac. When the crescent is released, the sac is filled with ink. In 1902, legendary American author Mark Twain expressed the virtues of this particular self-filling fountain pen resulting in the pen collection's name.

The Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Superblack Limited Edition fountain pen is limited to 1898* pieces and comes packaged in a blue Conklin gift box with a custom graphic sleeve.

*The Superblack with Chrome trim is limited to 898 pieces.

I have a vintage Conklin Crescent Filler. This "Pen Chalet" crescent filler has the exact same style and function as my original. I'm delighted that Conklin pens are still being made using modern materials and manufacturing. My "Mark Twain" pen feels more robust in my hand than the original because it has a brass frame not the hard black rubber of the original. The "Superblack" finish on my pen is amazing. It is super black!! The price was great for such a fine fountain pen. I highly recommend it and this shop.

I was intrigued with the SuperBlack finish when I first saw this pen on the website. After receiving the pen, I knew it would be one of my favorites. The smooth broad nib lays just the right amount of ink on the page. The finish is smooth, but grippy. The heft of the pen is pleasing and comfortable in my hand. This is my first Crescent Filler and it took a minute to acquaint myself with the inking process, but after the first fill, I’m hooked! I was as not familiar with Conklin as some of the fountain pen companies, but the quality shows in this writing instrument. I am very happy with this purchase.

It’s a beautiful pen. It’s very heavy though. The filler is working well, and I will continue to use lubricated ink to insure it continues to fill properly.

Love it. The twist ring was a bit difficult to engage first but then got it working. I would recommend.
