Conklin, the legendary name for fine writing instruments, returns with a revitalized design of a timeless classic, the Nozac piston filler. Originally released in 1931, Conklin took the world by storm with their patented piston-filler and polygonal design. The Conklin Nozac ("no sack") was the only American piston-filler in production at the time.
Based on the original model, the new Nozac fountain pen is machined to perfection and painstakingly hand-polished. The body features eight smooth faceted sides, and is then adorned with striking silver along the clip, grip, and ends. Made from European grade acrylic resin, each fountain pen displays a wide variety of colour. The Toledo Red is a stunning shade of dark maroon marbled with a mix of colours, flecked with purple, gold, blue, or orange.
New to Conklin, each cap is magnetized along the barrel and innermost lining for a secure closure, whether at the office or travelling. Similar to winding watches, to fill the fountain pen you must engage the piston filler mechanism. Simply twist the on-ending screw located at the end of the barrel counterclockwise to create suction within the body, then dip the nib into your ink of choice, and twist the screw clockwise to fill.
This fountain pen comes with a two-tone fine #6 steel nib. The new Conklin Nozac is once again poised to change the fine writing world!
