STORY
 
fountain pen history

Conklin invented the first successful self-filling pen, the Conklin Crescent Filler in 1897, and it was very successful, propelling the company into the majors of pen manufacturing. Conklin continued producing Crescent Filler pens into the 1920s, eventually converting to lever-fill pens. This lateness to the game foreshadowed Conklin's decline, which accelerated during the depression, finishing with the company being sold to a Chicago company in 1938, along with all of it's tooling and inventory. From the late 1930s, Conklin pens were made with Chicago imprints. The company shuttered in the mid 1950s.
