Conklin Glider – Medium Flex – (On Ebay)

Here is the third Conklin Glider I’ve offered in two weeks. These pens are from the 1930s. They were considered budget pens of the time, but were well made and quite durable. This pen is in decent condition. The celluloid is still quite attractive. The gold filled band looks good. The clip and lever appear to be nickel plated or chrome. In any case, they are silver and have some plating. This pen is fitted with a Conklin Chicago 14k nib, which has some flex and is a smooth and soft writer. 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 Chicago 14kt., XF to BB (0.3mm-1.5mm) MEDIUM 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
