I purchased the Conklin Coronet in Turquoise. It is a very affordable, attractive, and weighty pen, with a nice pearlized finish. It has a straight forward, streamlined style, which leads me to some buyers remorse, as I prefer the glitz and glamor of Benu pens. Which makes this a 'Me' problem, rather than any problem with the Conklin Coronet. I would recommend a medium or even a broad nib. I selected a fine nib, which writes more like an extra fine, in my opinion.
