Product Description

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.

A beautiful pen

This is my fourth Conklin Twain Crescent Filler fountain pen, and each one is a pleasure to use. Being a new pen, all I can judge is the quality of finish, writing and appearance. All are exceptional. My only concern initially was that the ring under the crescent wouldn't budge initially, but finally I managed to loosen it to get the filler to work.

This is well worth the price. The red chased finish looks nicer than the photos. I got the fine nib and this is one of the smoothest nibs I have ever used, with even inkflow. The pen has a nice balance and pleasing heft and feel in the hand.

What is your opinion of the quality of this item?

I highly recommend this fountain pen: not only is it a bold color, but the pen is an excellent writer, and a worthy addition to a nice line of pens.

Great addition to my collection

Very well made with a very nice writing steel nib. Very nice shade of red.

Yes. I have several pens of comparable price that are not of the same value, in my opinion.

What is your opinion of the quality of this item?

Very nice pen. Makes a nice pair with my black Conklin Mark Twain crescent filler.

Quality control was lacking!

Have not used the pen yet. However, it arrived with the band on the top unattached; I guess the glue was not effective.

Somewhat below.

What is your opinion of the quality of this item?

Quality control is poor.

Fantastic Pen, smooth and love the weight

the pen feels good in the hand, easy to fill from the bottle. Nib is smooth (fine) and it can handle very small writing as well as a little bit broader depending on your need.

Refilling the pen is so easy and is not as messy as other pens that I own (20 pens in total)

Extremely easy to refill

Awesome value

What is your opinion of the quality of this item?

I wish that I had bought this pen a long time ago, I write all day long and it is a real pleasure writing with the two Conklin pens I just purchased
