Conklin 1898 Misto Purple Fountain Pen
The Conklin Pen Company takes great pride in introducing their latest and exquisite pen collection, the Conklin 1898 in Misto colors. The term "Misto" is of Italian origin, meaning "mixed" or "blended," and it aptly describes the innovative resin blend of various colors used for each pen. Crafting luxury pens from such mixed resins demands precision and meticulous attention to detail to achieve a superior and aesthetically pleasing result. The process commences with the selection of high-quality liquid resin, the careful choice of compatible color combinations, and a step-by-step method of skillfully blending these colors.
While we strive to capture the pens' appearance in our photographs, the distinctive nature of this material leads to significant variation in the patterns and colors, making each pen truly one-of-a-kind.
The Conklin 1898 collection draws inspiration from Conklin's rich heritage and has been thoughtfully designed with comfort and durability in mind. These pens are ideal for individuals seeking a well-proportioned, cigar-shaped pen that offers a substantial surface for a comfortable grip during writing. The collection comprises three captivating Misto colors: Green, Purple, and Orange, each boasting unique color blends, ensuring that no two pens are identical. The Misto Purple color is combined with a rose gold trim which further accentuates the distinctive color fusion of each pen.
Every writing instrument within this collection features a cap ring adorned with an original vintage pattern reminiscent of Conklin's inaugural self-filling pens from 1898, which also bears the founding year of the iconic Conklin pen company established by Roy Conklin in Toledo, Ohio. These elements pay tribute to Conklin's vintage era and its enduring legacy in the realm of writing instruments. Furthermore, each pen is equipped with Conklin's signature "rocker style" clips, designed for seamless clipping action.
The Conklin 1898 fountain pen offers a choice of a dependable, smooth-writing German-made JoWo #6 nib in rose gold-plated steel, available in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad, or a 1.1mm stub, along with the rose gold-plated Omniflex flexible steel nib that offers line width variation. Each Cushion Point nib proudly displays the brand's name and features distinctive crescent-shaped breathing holes. Conklin's stringent quality control team individually tests each nib to ensure top-tier writing performance.
Regarding the JoWo Omniflex nib, it delivers a more responsive and soft writing experience compared to standard nibs. With gentle pressure, you can achieve some line variation. Caution should be exercised not to over-flex the nib, as it may hinder the tines from returning to their original position and affect or disrupt ink flow.
The 1898 fountain pen is equipped with reliable standard international cartridges and a threaded converter. Each Conklin writing instrument is presented in a luxurious gift box with a custom sleeve. The Conklin 1898 collection serves as an ideal gift for anyone, whether for professional use, home offices, or daily journaling.
