I’m so happy with my new Conklin 1898 Misto Pen Collection that I figured I’d share some pictures of my collection (both the All American and 1898 Misto). The colors are so vivid that a computer screen can’t do justice to its beauty (but I tried). It’s amazing seeing resin with a similar look to high-end designer resins that we know and love, but without the higher price tag.
First of all, the Conklin 1898 Misto Pen Collection is inspired by the rich heritage of the Conklin brand, designed with comfort and durability in mind. This collection is suited to individuals looking for a well-sized, cigar shaped pen that provides a larger surface area for a comfortable grip while writing.
Secondly, offered in three beautiful Misto colors: Green, Purple, and Orange, with unique color blends where no two pens are alike. Purple and Orange colors accented with a rose gold trim, meanwhile, Green features a chrome trim, to further highlight the unique color blends of each pen. I filled my green one with Private Reserve’s Avocado ink. My purple pairs nicely with Private Reserve’s Plum ink. Last but not least, the orange Misto looks great with Private Reserve’s Orange Crush.
All writing instruments feature a cap ring with a Conklin original vintage pattern, initially used on the first self-filling pens produced by the company back in 1898. The ring also features the year the legendary Conklin pen company was founded by Roy Conklin in Toledo, Ohio. Together, these elements pay homage to the vintage Conklin era and its extraordinary legacy in the world of writing instruments. Lastly, each pen features Conklin’s distinctive “rocker style” clips, designed for a smooth clip-on action.
Available choices for JoWo premium stainless steel nib grades include Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Stub, and Omniflex. This allows users to choose one that complements their individual handwriting style. Each Cushion Point nib displays the brand name and is marked with special crescent-shaped breathing holes. Conklin’s quality control team tests each nib individually to ensure top quality writing performance.
Finally, the fountain pen uses reliable international cartridges, a threaded converter (supplied), and the rollerball accepts standard international rollerball refill. Each Conklin brand writing instrument is housed in a luxury gift box with custom sleeve. The Conklin 1898 collection is an ideal gift for any person in your life or for yourself. These are great whether used in their professional lives, home offices, or daily journaling.
