Conklin Pens

Established in 1898, the Conklin pen company is regarded as one of the most significant and innovative American writing instrument companies in the golden era of fountain pens.

Founder Roy Conklin from Toledo, Ohio, is recognized for creating one of the world’s first self-filling fountain pens. Thanks to Conklin’s work, the design of fountain pens became more practical for public use when his patent for the first automatic filling mechanism went through in 1897.

In 1903, legendary American author Mark Twain expressed his praise, saying, ;''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.” Twain became the official spokesman for the Conklin Pen Company, and discovered yet another benefit to the Crescent Filler, stating, “Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it can't roll off the desk.''
