Itís a big pen. Nicely sized. Comes in a great big box.
This one is an absolute stunner. Black w/sterling silver trim. Looks exquisite, and that big nib is cíest magnifique! This one would look very much at home at a black tie affair.
Itís well-designed. Bonus points for the most comfortable section I think Iíve ever written with. Weight is very nicely balanced as well. This one wouldn't tire you out if you wrote with it for a couple of hours straight.
Itís big, two-toned 14k, and has a nice bit of spring to it! Looks terrific, and writes very nicely, too! When I got it, it was a medium nib and there were problems with the feed. I sent it back to Conklin and they promptly replaced the nib with a Fine, and a new feed. Upon getting it back and flushing it with a dishsoap/water mix, it worked great.
Converter - nothing special here.
Cost and Value
For what I paid for it when purchasing it new...itís been the best pen value Iíve ever had. I kick myself once a day for selling it.
If you ever have the chance to get this pen (specifically, a Levenger LE), get it. The 14k nib is stellar, and the pen is just beautiful.
