Conklin, was originally established in Ohio, USA in 1898. Since then it has maintained its position as one of the most innovative pen makers from the golden era of fountain pens. They were also the first pen manufacturer to introduce the ability to store ink inside the pen body.
Famously, Mark Twain was one of the main proponents of the Conklin brand. So much so that Conklin have created an entire range in his honour. Other notable ranges in the Conklin collection are the All American and Duragraph ranges.
