[SOLD]Conklin 20 Crescent Filler $140
[SOLD]Conklin 20 Crescent Filler
Conklin's Crescent Fillers are one of my favorite variations on the sac filler. They give a very full fill, and many times can be operated one hand unlike many lever fillers. This one just fills like a dream with the newly installed sac. The only fault on this pen is the chip in the crack which does stop at the threads so it still seals the nib perfectly fine. It also still screws onto the cap smooth and snug without problems since the threads are not affected. The cap's chasing is slightly less detailed than the barrel. The barrel looks like a brand new pen with the phenomenal deep chasing and the jet black hard rubber. Imprints are deep and detailed, and easily viewed with the naked eye. The original Conklin Toledo #2 solid gold nib has beautiful flex. It writes from a Fine to BBB when flexed and displays beautiful shading behavior when using a shading ink. This is a full size pen and I've knocked off $25 for the chipped cap which still screws on and posts perfectly fine. Writing sample is done on .5cm grid 90 gsm Clairefontaine paper. Measurements: 13.5cm capped, 17cm posted, and 12.3cm unposted.
