Conklin Student Special – Medium Flex (SOLD)


Conklin Student Special – Medium Flex (On Ebay)

This is a Toledo made Conklin “Student Special” in BCHR. This is a vest size pen and is missing its original ring top. The hard rubber has faded to a dark brown and the chasing is pretty worn. Imprints are also quite worn and are just barely readable. These are a bit thicker than some ring tops. They are closer to the size of a Waterman 52V than a 52 1/2V. The gold filled band and lever are both in good condition with little to no brassing. The 14kt. Conklin Toledo “S.S.” (student special) nib is a nice XF that writes quite smooth. It also has some flex going up to 1.4mm, but it is a bit too stiff to graded higher than medium flex. Some would call this a semi-flex.

SIZE:  4 1/4″ Capped

NIB:  Conklin Toledo S.S., XF-BB (0.3mm-1.4mm) MEDIUM FLEX (See “Grading Flex Nibs” for How I Grade)
