Conklin Vest Pen – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

This is a nice little black hard rubber, Toledo made, Conklin vest size pen. I have no idea the model name of this pen. The hard rubber is still very black. The striped chasing is worn but can be seen. The Conklin imprint is also worn but readable. It has a rather newish “Bic” accommodation clip. The original ring top is now missing. There is some brassing on the band and lever. The nib is rare and terrific. It has not only the crescent air hole but also a crescent imprint on the nib. It has a sweet spot that allows for nice, smooth normal writing. But it also some pretty responsive flex that makes for some good, crisp flex writing. A great little pen.
