The attention to detail on this pen is not good and it should be better given the price point. The top cover of the pen that turns the converter falls off easily as you turn it to fill the pen. Then, it will fall off after posting the cap. The various parts of the pen are uneven. The pen does write well and is comfortable. However, other pen manufacturers have better quality control making a better functioning and cosmetically looking pen at a lower price.

I got the Orange Carbon pen with a stub nib. Seems like it holds a gallon and a half of ink. This is another great Conklin pen I now own. It writes well, very well.

Excellent work horse pen. Use it for conferences and long note taking. I have a couple of the same model. Would buy again.

The combination of vintage design and modern substance is a great combo. The carbon fiber is matte so don’t expect a flashy shiny body.

Pen is OK. What I am most disappointed about is how the package arrived. The box was totally crushed and not usable to store the pen.

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."

It's a beautiful, matte-looking pen. Can't wait to see how it writes!

The pen, which was not the pen I thought I wanted, is a pleasure to write with (looks pretty cool too). Pens are difficult to purchase on line unless you know exactly what you want, need or will receive. Far too often, pens are purchased for numerous reasons, including the way they look, the price point, the brand, getting a great deal on an expensive pen, and a plethora of other reasons - not necessarily the way they feel, work or write. One of the primary benefits of purchasing from Pen Chalet, is the consumer friendly philosophy. Don't be afraid to call Ron who I am certain, has written with every pen he sells and can answer just about any question a normal pen consumer may want to know, whether about a specific pen, or about suggesting a pen to fit the customers wants and needs. Ron regularly can be seen on u-tube videos reviewing pens and focusing on elements consumers find important. This willingness to help without any customer obligation in an invaluable resource, and frankly, has saved my Thousands of Dollars by purchasing the latest and greatest only to find that the pen is not right for me, and will never be used.

Handsome pen, I love piston fillers and this one is very attractive. The "Word gauge" function ( the transparent ink reservoir is marked off) is cute, not sure how accurate it is but a nice touch. Solid nib.
