Conklin Crescent Ring Top – Paintbrush Wet Noodle (SOLD)

Conklin Crescent Ring Top Paintbrush – Wet Noodle

Here is a nice Conklin Crescent ring top. The model imprint is worn and unreadable, but I think it would be something like a 33P where the first 3 refers to the #3 nib size, the second three to the ring top, and the P to the fact that it’s a “pocket” sized pen. The hard rubber on this is faded some but still very dark. The chasing is worn almost smooth and only partially visible. Imprints are also quite worn and only pieces can be read. I don’t see any brassing on the ring top or crescent. The 14kt. #3 Conklin is a paintbrush wet noodle. It’s bouncy, fun, and just beautiful to use. Normally, it writes as a wet X (0.3mm) but it takes almost no pressure to get line variation. Responsiveness is excellent even though the nib is as soft as it is. If you really push this nib (please don’t for longevity’s sake), you will get some railroading. But if you use good form and stay within a good range, the feed keeps up well. This nib is particular suited for small and detail flex work. Or to just add a little flex flair to your normal writing. It’s a blast to use.
