Conklin All American Fountain Pen
During the 1930s, at the dawn of the depression, Conklin launched a collection that was priced more affordably to the general public. The ‘All American’ collection was offered in a variety of sizes, filling mechanisms and finishes with the aim of satisfying a growing market demand for good quality, but affordably priced writing instruments. Drawing inspiration from Conklin’s original models and the rich heritage of the brand, the new All American collection brings a vibrant, contemporary style to a timeless oversize streamlined design.
Crafted from hand made European high grade resins, the All American is impressively large in size, yet not so big as to be uncomfortable in the hand. The cap and barrel are carefully tapered to provide a perfect balance.
Offered in a choice of three finishes: vibrant Sunburst Orange, classic Tortoiseshell and the energetic Yellowstone, the All American pays homage to the classic designs of the vintage Conklin era. Sunburst Orange features vivid shades of deep orange set off by shimmering bright pearl highlights. Tortoiseshell offers a classic vintage look with a rich semi-translucent cream and brown mixture. Yellowstone is a bold and beautiful mix of pearl white, rich brown, and contrasting splashes of glowing yellow. The tapered cap tops features the famous ‘rocker style’ clip and the barrels are engraved with the Conklin® trademark and the ‘All American’ logo.
The All American Collection meets the requirements for those who want a large pen, one that stands out in a crowd, but which still stays true to the classic style and feel of the original Conklin designs.
