Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Fountain Pen
Conklin's Mark Twain Crescent Filler fountain pen is an exact replica of the original Crescent Filler used and promoted by the famed American author. In 1903, Mark Twain expressed the virtues of this unique self-filling pen in advertisements where he stated, "I prefer it to ten other fountain pens, because it carries its filler in its own stomach, and I cannot mislay even by art or intention. Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it cannot roll off the desk." The Crescent is known for its easy-to-fill reservoir. To load the pen, simply press the crescent mechanism on the barrel to empty the rubber bladder; ink flows back in as the crescent is released. Conklin fitted the Crescent with a two-tone steel nib featuring a crescent-shaped breathing hole and your choice of fine, medium or the popular STUB point - its great for distinctive signatures. Fahrney's exclusively offers the Crescent Filler fountain pen in two new captivating colors with a finely chased wave pattern on the resin barrel: red with yellow gold-plated accents or orange with polished chrome. The Crescent also comes in black with rose gold-plated trim. A bit of elegance is found on the clip and band engraved with the Conklin logo. Try the Crescent and experience the same satisfaction and inspiration that Mark Twain felt as he penned his extraordinary thoughts! Bottle fill only.
