The original Conklin Crescent Filler was the pen that made the brand famous. Thanks to the ingenious design of Roy Conklin, the Crescent Filler was one of the first pens to have a fully self-contained filling mechanism.

The mechanism is simple: the barrel contains a rubber ink sac and a cutaway in the barrel allows you to push the crescent through the side of the pen. The crescent is attached to a metal bar that presses against the side of the ink sac, squashing any air or ink out of it; once you release, the sac returns to its original shape, drawing ink into the pen. After a few presses the pen will be completely full.

The filling mechanism certainly had its fans, as Mark Twain put it: "I prefer it to ten other fountain pens, because it carries its filler in its own stomach, and I cannot mislay even by art or intention. Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it cannot roll off the desk."

Limited Edition Crescent Filler Gunmetal Fountain Pen, an exceptional writing instrument featuring a modern twist.

Uses plating along the length of the barrel and cap to give this pen an eye-catching mix of metallic dark hues. Paired with polished gunmetal trims and segments of black resin along the grip and locking ring. This pen is not only exceptional to look at but also to write with. Each pen is engraved with Mark Twain’s distinctive signature on the band and is equipped with the original Conklin spring loaded rocker clip. The limited edition number is engraved along the bottom of the barrel.

Supplied in a gift box. All Conklin writing instruments are guaranteed for life against mechanical failure due to faulty workmanship or materials.
