Conklin Vest Pen – Super Flex

Conklin Vest Pen – Super Flex

Here is a really nice vintage Conklin in a vest pen size. The pen is very similar to the Endura of the same size, but it is not marked Endura. It is in really great shape. The black hard rubber has almost no fading. The pin stripe chasing is still crisp as are the imprints. There is some small scratches here and there on the hard rubber body but they are very light and not very noticeable. The gold-filled trim also looks great. The made in Toledo Conklin #2 nib is a quality 14kt. gold beauty. It writes normally as a an XF. The flow keeps up perfectly but it is not the very wet flow typical of this era. It is smooth, not buttery, but smooth. It flexes nicely up to BBB (1.7mm) and has good responsiveness. Overall, a great little vintage pen.
