Conklin Crescent 2NL – Wet Noodle – (On Ebay)

Here is the classic Conklin Crescent pen. No pen collection would be complete without this iconic pen. This pen is in great condition. It has browned to a dark, blackish brown. But the imprints and chasing as still very crisp. Chasing almost feels like new. There is some light scratching on the gold filled trim in places, but there is no brassing. The ring holding up the crescent is in perfect shaped. The 14kt. Conklin Toledo #2 is a very wet, smooth writing “F”. It really is a Fine stub (0.5mm) with some descent line variation and will give nice character to any hand writing. There is a slight wrinkle in the right tine, but it does not affect the performance of the pen. The flex on this pen is great. It’s what I would grade as a wet noodle. It’s not quite a paintbrush noodle, but it is very easy requiring very, very little pressure to flex. It goes from 0.5mm to 1.8mm with ease, and is pretty responsive for how wet the nib is. A really fun and classic pen.
