First established in 1898 in Toledo, Ohio, the Conklin Pen company began manufacturing in the golden era of fountain pens.  Founder Roy Conklin registered the patent for the first working automatic filling mechanism. In 2019 an experienced pen producer in the U.S. purchased the Conklin brand. New materials and technology are now used to produce these original Conklin designs so highly valued by collectors and pen enthusiasts throughout the world. 

  • Conklin Duragraph Nights


    In 1923, the original Conklin Duragraph was named by combining the words, durable and graph and quickly became one of Conklin’s most essential designs. 

    The new Nights collection brings that classic sensibility to the modern era with a stunning, yet highly affordable design in either Orange or Purple. Crafted from quality handmade resins, the Duragraph is substantial in size, yet not so large to be unwieldy in the hand. 

    Priced like 1928

    Offered at an astounding $65, the Duragraph fountain pen continues to stand for value. The stainless-steel nib is available in Fine, Medium or Stub nib grades. The Duragraph fountain pen offers the ideal choice for your individual handwriting style. The cap’s top is embellished with the ‘Conklin Est. 1898’ logo and the cap’s band is engraved in the traditional Duragraph script font. The fountain pen fills via standard cartridge or converter, which is included. The matching ballpoint accepts standard Parker style refills. Dozens of fountain pen ink or ballpoint refills are available and shown with the pen.

  • Conklin All American

    If only

    If today's materials were available in the 1930s, the Conklin All American collection would have been as bright and bold as this new lapis blue, crazy yellowstone or patriotic old glory. These stunning fountain pens and ballpoints are still the same great value from the 1930s. Treat yourself to an incredible writing experience from a larger pen with a streamlined design straight out of the past.

  • Conklin Duragraph

    Wow, what a response!

    Colorado Pen customers always amaze us. They jumped on the reintroduction of this historic Conklin Duragraph – in a major way. A very discerning bunch who know great value. So much so that we are adding a new finish, the ICE BLUE Duragraph fountain pen and twist-top ballpoint. Feel a kind of coolness in the heat of summer with new ICE BLUE finish. The popular forest green and amber models remain a great option too. If you are a timid fountain pen wannabe, this is a nice entry into a new writing experience. If you are a practical ballpoint fan, you will love the pocket-perfect profile of this Duragraph and the wide array of refills it uses.
