The Conklin Pen Company’s® exclusive Herringbone™ series combines vintage appeal with a modern bold style and elegance. Made from solid metal, the barrel displaying the unique Herringbone pattern itself is achieved by using a very precise computerized engraving machine to cut the deep pattern into the metal. 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, durability and vibrancy. The collection offers a choice of four colors, Burgundy, Gun Metal, Navy Blue and coming soon Orange. The heavy chromium clip is engraved with the legendary Conklin® trademarked name and font and the center ring is engraved with the Herringbone™ name and surrounded by four Conklin® crescent shapes to each side. The fountain pen fills via standard cartridge or converter (included) and is available in six nib size options. The matching twist-action ballpoint is perfectly balanced and fills with standard Parker® style refills.
