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 previous Rosegold edition sold out within weeks. Please don’t hesitate on this Gunmetal version if you are at all thinking about adding it to your collection.
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 Gunmetal 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 Gunmetal Limited Edition.
