Very nice condition, with lovely color preservation and beautiful mottled patterning, there is no personalization on the pen.  The Conklin imprint has a hint of wear, but is clearly readable. There are some typical light surface scratches to the cap and barrel.  The clip is firm, the clip, cap bands and lever have a bit of wear, as shown.  Please note, the lever mechanism was repaired with a new pin that was secured in place to address over-stressing by a previous user.  This filling mechanism is exceptionally designed and only requires a small amount of movement to nicely fill the pen.  The beautiful pen has been cleaned, a new ink sac installed, it has been water and ink tested.  The pen fills great, writes great and it's ready for ink.






Conklin Sub-Endura Symetrik - Pearlescent Rose and Gray Mottled

  • A rare and unique pen style, best described by fountain pen guru Dr. David Issacson, Conklins 1920s flat-tops gave way to round-end pens around 1930. The high line Endura became the Endura-Symetrik, eventually yielding to the Nozac. During this era Conklin offered pens priced below the high line Endura and Nozac, pens which had the same general contour, often more bold colors, and often more flexible nibs. These are well appreciated by Conklin aficionados. The [pens are] done in the Endura Symetrik style, but are slender non-Enduras...The red/gray mix for which I've never seen a formal name.
