Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Fountain Pen Review

Recommended Posts

Here is my review [plus video] of the Conklin Mark Twain Crescent Filler Fountain Pen with a factory stub nib.

 

I'd love to read feedback on the review. If you own one of these pens, let me know how you like the crescent filler and if you have any insight as to how it wears over time. Any folks out there need to get it serviced?

 

I'm also up for constructive criticism about the review (& video) as well.

can you remove the head from the body on yours? I purchased on e and had to return it because the crescent fell into the body the first time I treid to fill it, and I couldnt retrieve it because the body and head seemed to be permanently attached.. I had an older one and these parts were easy to remove for repairs and maintenence..

Take a look at my post under Conklin Mark Twain crescent filler. I wish Jim Campbell told me this. Instead I got a response from a Mark Twain pen fan who said he never heard of this problem.

This sounds like two issues. The pressure bar getting stuck in the sac sounds like a bad sac, which is soft enough to capture and not release the bar.

 

The second is an issue of the section and the barrel being fastened together. Most pens had some kind of adhesive holding those two parts together. There are older pens with the adhesive either no longer holding, or having been removed during repairs and not being replaced. I have pens with both conditions.

It's a new pen. So the problem must be the sac. I sent it back for a new replacement pen. Thanks for responding.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
