Conklin Glider – Medium Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is a great example of the Conklin Glider from the 1930s. These pens were considered budget pens of the time, but were well made and quite durable. This pen is in pretty good condition. The celluloid is still quite attractive. There is a little bit of brassing on the lever, and some on the edges of the clip. The band looks pretty good. This pen is fitted with a Conklin Cushion Point 14k nib, which are considered to be high quality nibs. It also has some flex to it. A great, durable pen. Free Gift: From now until Christmas, everyone one of my buyers gets a free 2ml sample of Pilot Iroshizuku ink!
