For over 120 years, Conklin has been applying various methods to each production of our luxury writing instruments, creating captivating collectibles loved by beginners and enthusiasts alike. Drawing inspiration from Conklin’s original models and the rich heritage of the brand, we are proud to introduce a new collection to the lineup: the Empire™, a fountain pen and rollerball 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. Available in three brilliant colors: Stardust Red, Stardust Blue, or Stardust White. Each fountain pen comes with Conklin’s famous two-tone nib in four available sizes: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, and 1.1mm stub. These fountain pens fill via standard cartridge or converter (included), while the rollerball uses standard refills. Each Conklin fine writing instrument is housed in a luxury gift box.
