The Conklin Pen Company® was established in Toledo, Ohio USA in 1898. It is regarded as one of the most significant and innovative American writing instruments manufacturers from the Golden era of fountain pens until today. In 1923, the Duragraph™ model is launched and shortly afterward is considered to be 'the definitive' pen. The model was named by combining the words “durable” and “graph” to equal Duragraph™. The new Duragraph Savoy combines a royal vintage feel with a modern flair.
The House of Savoy is a royal dynasty that was established in 1003 in the historical Italian Savoy region. Through its junior branch of Savoy-Carignano, the House of Savoy led the Italian unification in 1860 and ruled the Kingdom of Italy until 1946. The unification of Italy, also known as the Risorgimento, was the 19th-century political and social movement that resulted in the consolidation of different states of the Italian Peninsula into a single state, the Kingdom of Italy. This historical event was chosen as an inspiration for the new aristocratic and elegant design of the Duragraph Savoy collection.
The Duragraph Savoy combines elegance, cutting-edge design, and functionality that uplift the writing experience. The perfectly-sized barrel is covered with blue high-quality textured leather that is soft to touch yet very durable. The leather is decorated with handmade, high-end cross-stitching along the barrel adding additional strength and complementing the overall look. The cap with brown resin accents completes the exquisite look. Lustrous chrome plating adorns the clip, band, and trim, enhancing the elegance of each pen. The cap top is embellished with the Conklin® Est. 1898 logo.
The Duragraph Savoy is available in fountain pens and ballpoint pens. The ballpoint pen activates with a twist mechanism and accepts standard Parker® style ballpoint or gel refills. The fountain pen fills via cartridge or converter (included) and is equipped with a premium JoWo stainless steel #6 nib personalized with the Conklin name, the historic “Toledo, USA” mark, and a crescent-shaped breathing hole. The nib is available in Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Stub, or Omniflex points.
Each Conklin pen features a lifetime warranty and is sold in a luxurious gift box.
