Conklin Mark Twain Ltd. Demo Crescent Filler Fine Point Fountain Pen. The Conklin Pen Company was established in 1898 in Toledo Ohio USA and promptly changed writing instruments forever when it patented the self-filling pen known as the Crescent Filler now recognized as the worlds first practical self-filling fountain pen. One thing Twain would not have envisioned given the technology of the era was a crystal clear pen where one could see the filling mechanism in action and watch as the ink filled the stomach. Now for the first time in the long history of the Crescent fountain pen a crystal clear limited edition demonstrator version has been successfully produced. To achieve this feat many technical hurdles had to be overcome. Not only must the barrel be polished inside and out but internal parts must be finely finished and care taken during the final assembly process to eliminate dust glue and other unsightly artifacts. Each pen is individually numbered and only 1898 will be produced worldwide. The flexible and smooth writing iridium nibs are available in F M and Stub sizes. Filling of course is via bottle only but even that is easier with a Crescent than any other fountain pen and can be done with just one hand. Simply dip the nib into your favorite ink and squeeze the crescent a few times and you’re done! We are an authorized dealer for all the brands we carry.
