Conklin® is proud to introduce the Israel 75 Anniversary Diamond Jubilee (a special anniversary celebration) Limited Edition 1948 Collection, a revitalized design of a vintage Conklin classic, a fountain pen, a rollerball and a ballpoint collection. Exceptionable to look at and even better in hand, the Israel 75 is as unique as it is stunning. Machined to perfection and scrupulously hand-polished, the Israel 75 body features one of a kind high-graded blue and white resin, olive wood, and is then adorned with striking chrome accents along the overlay, clip and rings. Made with elaborate attention to details, each writing instrument is a visual representation of the country. Beautiful satin chrome plated overlay out of which a design is carved. The custom-made resin underneath displays the main symbols of Israel’s cultural values: words Israel and (Israel in Hebrew); a dove and an olive branch, recognized throughout the world as a token of peace; the seven-branched Menorah, symbolizing the seven days of Creation; the Hebrew word Shalom, meaning "Peace" (one of harmony and contentment, in complete peace); the Torah, representing the core of the Jewish spiritual and religious tradition. Located along the olive wood top of the cap is an intricately engraved coin with the Star of David encircled by the Shema Yisrael (the centerpiece of the daily morning and evening prayer services) that reads
Hear O Israel, the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.The clip is etched with a grape vine design on it as a symbol of the Tree of Life. The band of Israel 75 incorporates the sacred Western Wailing Wall (Kotel in Hebrew), long believed to be the sole remains of the Second Temple, that stood in Jerusalem for over 2000 years as well as a numerical reference to the 75th anniversary years: number 75 and in Hebrew numerology. Each pen is a unique piece of art.
Conklin Israel 75 Anniversary Diamond Jubilee collection is a numbered Limited Edition of 1948 pieces. The fountain pen fills via cartridge or converter (included) and is equipped with a premium #6 JoWo nib personalized with the Conklin name, the historic “Toledo, USA” mark, and a crescent-shaped breathing hole.

Each pen box is fitted with an explicitly designed sleeve. The sleeve is decorated with cut-outs in the shapes of the pen’s overlay symbols through which blue flag color is visible, creating an intricate pattern on the sleeve.
