Conklin Duragraph Purple Nights w/ Omniflex nib

Description:

The Conklin pen company was established in 1898 and became one of the leading manufacturers in the US - famously Mark Twain used a Conklin pen. In the 1950s, however, it went out of business before being revived and sold to Yafa in 2009.

The Duragraph was originally launched in 1923 and this modern version has a similar vintage style to the 1920s "Flat Top" pens. Made of resin, it has a purple "cracked ice" barrel with plain black end cap, grip section and cap.

The "Omnigraph" nib is a modern steel flex nib with cut-out shoulders. Like most modern flex nibs, it doesn't have the range of a vintage flex, but it is lots of fun - but please don't push it too far as you run the risk of springing the tines.

Filling mechanism: cartridge converter (Threaded) - included.
