Per Stipula Italy (last month), Saterno crescent filler returns to US market in June or July. I have already contacted FPH in NYC.

I have just ordered a NIB Conklin Mark Twain (Fine) Black Chased Gold... super excited to ink it up. I'm quite the Noodler Nut, but have a pretty broad pallets to experiment. As I prefer something with water resistant qualities. I read that it's a wet one, and pens vary even within model, but has anyone dialed in an ink you really like in this. (BTW; my writing is typically on what most would consider the small side).
So since it's been awhile since this thread was active, are there any new revelations or ink recommendations you all might have after putting some miles on yours?

My Mark Twain Crescent is close to useless as it oozes ink. The nib assembly does not fit properly into the section. I've had three Connklin pens and each was a lemon.

My thoughts on my WONDERFUL Crescent filler . . .



I bought a browny All American in October and am as delighted with its looks and performance as I am with the Mark Twain Crescent Filler.
Go Conklin  :) 

Best of luck.
