Conklin Crescent 20 – Super Flex

Conklin Crescent 20 – Super Flex – (On Ebay)

This is the classic Conklin Crescent in size 20. The black hard rubber has faded a little to a slightly brownish black. The chasing is pretty good. A little worn in places. There is an area on the cap where it’s lost it’s texture, but the rest of the pen looks and feels good. Crescent filler is great condition. The trim looks good with no brassing. The imprints are mostly good and readable with just a spot here and there where it has faded some. The 14kt. Cokline Toledo #2 is a wet writing F that is smooth and a good writing vintage nib. It has some great flex that comes with ease and ranges all the way to 1.7mm. It also has some very nice responsiveness. It’s overall a superb pen.
