Conklin Herringbone

Conklin Herringbone

Established in 1898, the Conklin Pen Company® is regarded as one of the most significant American writing instruments manufacturers from the golden era of fountain pens. Located in Toledo, Ohio, founder Roy Conklin, registered the patent for the first working automatic filling mechanism in 1897. Conklin is recognized as creating one of the world’s first practical self-filling fountain pen.

In 1903, Mark Twain, the legendary American author and official spokesman for The Conklin Pen Company, expressed the virtues of this unique self-filling fountain pen by saying, "I prefer it to ten other fountain pens, because it carries its filler in its own stomach, and I can not mislay even by art or intention." 

In 2009, the World's leading source for fine writing instruments, Yafa companies, purchased the Conklin brand and is the world-wide distributor for this iconic American brand. Founded in 1978, owner, Yair (Jerry) Greenberg, is proud to utilize more than 36 years of experience to bring back the original creed and dedication of the original Conklin Pen Company. 

The new Conklin Herringbone series combines vintage appeal with a modern style and elegance. The unique Herringbone pattern is achieved by using a computerized engraving machine to cut the deep pattern. This pattern is seen underneath a special translucent lacquer which is then coated with layers of epoxy for protection. 

The fountain pen uses a standard cartridge or converter (which is included) and is available in fine, medium and 1.1mm stub point sizes. The Herringbone ballpoint is the popular ‘twist to deploy’. It takes the most common refill sold, the Parker Style. We offer this refill in three ink choices, in 11 colors from fine to broad.
