Drawing inspiration from Conklin’s original models and the rich heritage of the brand, Conklin is proud to introduce a new collection to the lineup: the Empire™, a fountain pen set with vintage appeal and elegance balanced with a modern, bold style. The word empire, meaning absolute control, was the inspiration behind this daring new design. Torpedo-shaped with tapered ends, each Empire is made from quality shimmering acrylic resins and is engineered to perfection, creating its distinctive and unforgettable fluted cap and body design. A timeless new model, the Empire offers a unique shape and an ergonomic and sculpted feel, perfect for daily writing. Paired with engraved silver accents, the clip displays the legendary Conklin trademarked name which is painstakingly hand-painted in blue lacquer, while the cap band is painted red. Along with a daring new appearance is a hidden mechanism: our all-new twist magnet lock system that allows a swift, soft, and pleasing opening and closure. Each fountain pen comes with Conklin’s famous two-tone nib in sizes: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, 1.1mm stub, and OmniFlex. These fountain pens fill via standard cartridge or converter (included). Each Conklin fine writing instrument is housed in a luxury gift box.
