From the moment I saw the Conklin Mark Twain Limited Edition Fountain Pens online, I was smitten. I thought the Rainbow version was absolutely spectacular. Unfortunately, it was way out of my price range, and I soon gave up hope of ever owning one. And then, while browsing through the Closeout and Overstock section of the Specials tab at Pen Chalet, I found the pen I was looking for at less than half of the MSRP. I ordered one on the spot, and when it arrived, I discovered that it was even more incredible than I had imagined. Not only was it beautiful, it wrote like a dream. And so I ordered another to give as a gift. I had passed over a second color of the same pen, one in Gunmetal, and I decided to order one of them, too. Again, when it arrived it proved to be even better than I had imagined it would be. I am so grateful to be a Pen Chalet shopper. Were I not, I most likely would have never acquired these wonderful pens which give me so much pleasure every time I use them.

Purchased the Gunmetal version. This pen is different from the other Mark Twain models in that it is much (!) heavier. Where other models are resin, this one is PVD coated brass. The weight of the barrel is noticeable, especially given the plastic section. The balance is just a bit off. Posting the pen makes writing challenging as the cap weighs a bit more than the rest of the pen, making it very back-heavy.
The nibs are great now that Conklin has switched to JoWo. I haven't had a problem since the change.
Unfortunately mine had the section misaligned and the crescent was facing down, digging into the web between thumb and index finger. It was very uncomfortable to hold especially given the weight of the pen. I have a bunch of Mark Twain Crescent Fillers, and this was the first one where the nib was not aligned with the crescent, so I consider it an anomaly. Unfortunately I had to return the pen, but I did like the concept.

I checked the coating process on the rainbow pen- This really interesting processing produces one if the highest durable , and beautiful coatings o metal
This pen will out last my plastic, resin, ebonite, pens, and be the most beautiful and scratch resistant pen i own for years to come- Something to consider.

This historic filling mechanism inspired loyalty over 115 years ago - a cutting edge alternate to dip pens, pencils and leaky eyedropper pens- the only options in its time.
(These were all prone to rolling off the writing surface of period slanted top desks during a pause.)

Most of the work written by Mark Twain after this pen’s creation-were written by this the innovation crescent filler pen ( i’m assuming he had a black chased hardened rubber one.)
I am excited to have a pen with his actual signature etched on, near the numbers of the limited edition. ( I have 294 of 1898.)

I have bought this quality pen to use, to endure into the future.- there are people who over haul these crescent fillers if it should need service. Also if i want to change nibs i could get another style conklin.

The writing experience ( F) :
This beautiful black nib has a sweet spot. This sweet spot can be used to create line variations ( not by-pressing harder- but by rollong it right left a little.)
It is stiff with delightful slight spring for a great experience.

After unboxing: i washed the nib first. I inked it with a colververse ink that might have been on the dry nature. It took a while for the feed to fill. (invert it over cloth for 30 min). i changed out my first ink combo, cleaned it out and put in Sailor Colorado ink. Perfect .
It took a few days of writing with it for it to cone into its own- don’t fret.
Now i’ve been writing with it daily for a while and love it. love it. Its a heavy pen- metal, not slippery to hold like some metal pens, or pens with metal grips. I soon feels natural in my hand after a few minutes of writing. Its weight reminds me of my Karas Kustums pen “Ink” ( early version). It is longenough it does not need posting.

Please read the filling instructions, carefully follow them ( 4 presses) to get the ink filled.
Its very easy but must be followed ( read instructions) for you to have success.

After you understand this pen you will cherish it!

I can't say enough about this pen. Its a heavy metal pen with beautiful coloration and a nib that writes like a dream. Its well worth the price and has a big wet nib that really preforms like a high end pen.

This pen is heavy! The pen may not be mightier than the sword, but this pen could do double duty as a police truncheon. It's a beautiful, rainbowy pen and battle mace all in one! I know. Pens are not supposed to be used to wallop people (literally), but I like that about this pen.
