Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Fountain Pen
Established in 1898 in Toledo, Ohio, the Conklin Pen Company quickly changed writing instruments forever when it patented the self-filling pen known as the Crescent Filler, now recognized as the world’s first practical self-filling fountain pen. With Mark Twain as its spokesman, Conklin thrived and Crescent Fillers became one of the most beloved pens in history. The resin finishes for these editions were carefully selected to honor Conklin’s rich
history and evoke models of its past: Vintage Green with yellow gold fittings, and Vintage Blue with chrome fittings. 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. The Crescent is fitted with Conklin’s Cushion Point flexible steel nib with crescent-shaped breathing hole. The Crescent also features Conklin’s
original spring-loaded Rocker clip design patented in 1916. Bottle fill only.
