The new Conklin Herringbone series combines vintage appeal with a modern bold style and elegance. The unique Herringbone pattern itself is achieved by using a very precise computerized engraving machine to cut the deep pattern into the solid metal barrel. This elegant pattern, reminiscent of the Conklin crescent shape, is seen underneath a special translucent colored lacquer and coated with several layers of epoxy for protection and brightness. The heavy chromium clip is engraved with the legendary “Conklin” trademarked name and font and the center ring is engraved with the Conklin “C” surrounded by four Conklin crescent shapes on each side. The fountain pen fills via standard cartridge / converter (included) and is available in fine, medium and 1.1mm stub point sizes. The matching twist ballpoint is perfectly balanced and fills with standard P1 ballpoint of P4 gel refills.
