Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Fountain Pen

The Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Fountain Pen is an exact replica of the original Conklin Pen Company crescent filler used and promoted by Mark Twain. The commanding hue of the Conklin Crescent Fountain Pen is made from cellulose acetate and the barrel is engraved with the famous Conklin logo. Accented with a yellow-gold plated clip, cap band, and crescent the Conklin Crescent Fountain Pen is a beautiful writing instrument for fountain pen enthusiasts of all types. The sophisticated two toned steel nib even has the crescent-shaped breathing hole, and the Conklin Crescent is easy to fill as it uses a flexible rubber sack as an internal ink reservoir.

Mark Twain expressed the virtues of this unique self-filling fountain pen in a series of advertisements in which he stated "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. Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it cannot roll off the desk."
