Conklin

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 Limited Edition Endura Abalone Rosegold

    For Yourself or As a Gift?
          Or Both?

    Take a step back in time with the new Conklin Endura. The Conklin Pen Company, established in 1898, originally released the ever successful Endura in 1924. The Endura Abalone Limited Edition showcases design as one of Conklin’s additional attributes. The Limited Edition is just 1,898 pieces.

    The Endura Abalone uses the highly iridescent inner mother of pearl layer of authentic abalone shell from New Zealand. The pen’s body glistens as light passes over its finish. You will find yourself spinning the pen for entertainment. Writing is almost secondary.

    The shell of abalone has traditionally been used in jewelry, buttons, and as an inlay in furniture and in musical instruments. The inner shell is a swirl of intense colors, ranging from deep cobalt blue and peacock green to purples, creams, and pinks. The body is hand-turned and hand-polished. 

    The pen’s trim features lustrous rose gold plating on the clip and band. There are only 1898 pieces available in fountain and ballpoint. The fountain pen has a black Jowo stainless steel nib personalized with the Conklin name, the historic “Toledo, USA” mark, and a special crescent-shaped breathing hole. The stainless steel nib with iridium tip is both smooth and dependable, available in extra fine, fine, medium, broad, stub and Omniflex. Your fountain pen fills by either cartridge or converter (included). The ballpoint pen uses a widely available Parker-style refill. Each Conklin pen is sold in a luxury blue gift box. Buy it for yourself or as a gift. The legend of over a century lives on in Endura Abalone Limited Edition.

  • Conklin Heritage Word Gauge

    90 Years of History
    Did you know that the Heritage Word Gauge™ Collection evolved from another famous Conklin® pen? The Word Gauge began as a variation of the classic Conklin Nozac. The Nozac, a collection released in 1931, took the world by storm with their patented American made piston-filler system. This ‘no sac’ design gave the company great advantage over its competition, boasting an attractive slogan, “The pen that winds like a watch.” Due to their successes, some of the later models came affixed with an opaque window to view your ink level.

     In hopes of further demonstrating the great ink supply of its pens, Conklin® designed the Nozac Word Gauge™ in 1932. Featuring a similar design, the Word Gauge’s opaque window came engraved with numbered gradations to indicate how many words could be written with the remaining ink. By giving the user a visible ink supply and a gauge, an estimate could be made on how long the ink would continue to flow before the pen needed to be refilled. 

    Word Gauge 2020
    Now featuring a modern design with alluring colors, the Heritage Word Gauge™ boasts a transparent window in the barrel of each pen, a truly unique feature exclusively available with this collection. Each Word Gauge comes with a built-in piston-filling system for, “straight out of the bottle ink filling”. Simply dip your nib into the ink bottle and twist the piston located at the back end of the pen body. Filling your pen directly from a bottle allows limitless ink choices!

    Each Word Gauge™ is made from strong, unique resin and is available in three stunning colors: Black with sleek Gunmetal accents, Blue or Turquoise, both paired with chrome trim. Along the front of each barrel is the name of the collection, tastefully engraved. Word Gauge is available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium or OmniFlex™. The OmniFlex™ nib made by JoWo or Germany, allows the user to vary your line from very thin to very wide.

    The OmniFlex nib is in extremely limited supply due to unprecedented demand. We have stock on all three colors of the Word Gauge, but we could run out before a new shipment of nibs arrives. Please order with this in mind. Standard nibs are available.
