Conklin created the Mark Twain 2012 Crescent Filler Fountain Pen as an exact replica of the original Crescent Filler fountain pen used and promoted by Mark Twain. There is a new finish to add to the line now – the zebra finish!
The Crescent Filler is known for its easy-to-fill reservoir. The crescent on the barrel is depressed to empty the rubber bladder inside; ink flows back in as the crescent is released. Conklin fitted the Crescent with a two-tone steel nib featuring a corresponding crescent shaped breathing hole, which is now also available in a stub nib, as well as a fine and a medium.
The Crescent Filler fountain pen is now available in captivating, fresh resin colors – green, orange, beige, and zebra. Rich gold plating adds a bit of elegance to the clip and band engraved with the Conklin logo. The MSRP of the Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler is $165.00USD, but it will cost you $132.00USD.
