Conklin Gold Filled Pen – Good Flex – (On Ebay)

This is a 4 7/8″ long gold filled Conklin with a clip. It is in pretty good shape, although there are three dings on the body below the lever (towards the nib). There is some light scratching throughout, but the brassing is pretty minimal. There is a bit of brassing on the end of the barrel, but that is about it. There is no personalization on the pen. The 14kt. Coklin Toledo nib writes normally as a F, which feels just a tad dry. This is a hard nib to grade. The initial flex is quite easy and can give flair to normal writing without even trying hard. However, when flexing it more to it’s potential it is a bit stiff. It’s right on the border between what I would consider a good flex and a super flex.
