Conklin Mark Twain Crescent filler Fountain Pen
Conklin® proudly celebrates Independence Day with the American pen that started it all for the Conklin® Pen Company back in 1898, by introducing New Colors in the Mark Twain Crescent Filler® fountain pen collection. Roy Conklin invented and patented the self-filling pen known as the Crescent Filler™, and now it is recognized as the world's first practical self-filling fountain pen. In 1903, Mark Twain, the legendary American author, 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.” Becoming the official spokesman for The Conklin® Pen Company, Mark Twain discovered yet another benefit to Conklin’s Crescent Filler™ stating, “Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it cannot roll off the desk.” Today, two new colors, vibrant red and an earthy coral have been added to this classic collection. Each Mark Twain Crescent Fountain pen is painstakingly engraved with a distinctive chaise pattern, echoing techniques utilized in fine pen production for over a century.
