The Conklin Duragraph Fountain Pen

01/18/2015

My Conklin Duragraph has been the focus of several conversations the past few days so instead of writing a full review, here are a few comments and some images that say all there is to say about this well-priced, attractive and sweet-writing pen.

  • Attractive and well constructed especially at the price point.
  • Nicely balanced and long enough to not need posting.
  • Diameter at the section is very comfortable.
  • Cartridge or converter for easy maintenance.
  • Silver-colored steel stub nib is 1.1mm and smooth with good flow.
  • Good value for money at under $45 from several retailers.

Reviews From The Pen Cup and The Well-Appointed Desk sold me on the Duragraph and I’m so glad they did.

Caveat: I am still working to improve the photos taken with my phone. The colors are off in places and the clarity imperfect, but you can get the general idea regardless.

Fountain Pen Day

11/07/2014

Many aficionados are marking Fountain Pen Day by posting images of their favorite pens and/or written remarks about the day. Some especially lucky ones will win prizes in the many giveaways ending today. All of us will enjoy using our pens just as we do every day of the year.

Besides putting a few to use, I’m giving fourteen neglected pens a thorough cleaning before going into storage for a well earned vacation. That will leave two Platinums, two Reform 1745s, one Noodler’s and a Lamy on my desk. After a good cleaning the Platinum #3776 music nib will return to active duty. That’s more than enough variety to keep this fountain pen lover happy.

Do you have plans for Fountain Pen Day?
