Conklin Glider – Cushion Point – (On Ebay)

Another Conklin Glider. These pens were considered budget pens of the time, but were well made and quite durable. The pen is in fairly good condition, but it is missing the gold band on the cap. The celluloid is still quite attractive. There is a little bit of brassing on the lever and clip.  The pen is fitted with a XF Conklin Cushion Point 14k nib, which are considered to be high quality nibs. It has just a smidgen of flex to it. So it’s firm, but not a nail. A great, durable pen. Free Gift: From now until Christmas, everyone one of my buyers gets a free 2ml sample of Pilot Iroshizuku ink!

SIZE:  5 1/8″ Capped

NIB: Conklin Cushion Point 14kt., xF, SLIGHT FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)

FILLING: Lever

CONDITION: Good

Restoration Work:

  • I purchased this partly restored
  • Pen thoroughly cleaned & flushed
  • Body buffed for scratches
  • Body and trim cleaned and polished
  • Test driven for a week to insure quality
