Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Black Chased Fountain Pen

The Mark Twain Crescent Fountain Pen is an exact replica of the original Conklin Pen Company crescent filler used and promoted by Mark Twain. The Crescent Fountain Pen is made from cellulose acetate. The barrel of each pen is engraved with the famous Conklin logo in a unique antique yellow. Accented with a sterling silver clip and band with Mark Twain's signature, each fountain pen has a two tone 14kt gold nib.

Mark Twain expressed the virtues of this unique self-filling fountain pen in a series of advertisements in which he stated "I prefer it to ten other fountain pens, because it carries its filler in its own stomach, and I can not mislay even by art or intention. Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it cannot roll off the desk."
