Conklin Endura – Semi Flex – (On Ebay)

This little pen is just gorgeous. The ruby marbled celluloid really pops. I believe it is a ladies size Conklin Symetrik, but it does not have “Symetrik” printed on the barrel. Patent date on clip is 1918 and on lever 1925. Both barrel and nib were made in Toledo, OH. The body is in excellent condition as is the trim. Little to no brassing that I can see. The nib is a great Super Flex borderline Wet Noodle. It does work best with thicker low surface tension inks like Pilot Iroshizuku (I’ll be sending a free Pilot Iro sample so you can get maximum flex from the get go). The nib does have a very small crack coming out of the breather hole on the right side of the crescent. The pen also writes great. A fantastic little pen.
