The Conklin Pen Company was established in Toledo, Ohio USA in 1898. Conklin 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 was launched, named by combining the words “durable” and “graph”.
Living up to its name, the new Duragraph PVD collection brings the timeless class of vintage to the modern-day. Each writing instrument is covered with PVD coating over the pen’s solid brass body providing key performance features giving additional vibrance, luster, and durability. Physical Vapor Deposition or PVD is a process that uses diverse thin film deposition techniques that focus on vaporizing a solid material in a vacuum environment, resulting in deposition onto the surface as a pure material coating. This material coating is appealing to the eye but also extremely durable, can reduce friction, and serve as a barrier against any potential damage caused by the external environment and usage of the product. Moreover, PVD coating is highly resistant to tarnishing and corrosion.
The cap top is embellished with the Conklin Est. 1898 logo and the cap band is engraved with the famous Duragraph model script font with three Conklin crescent logos on either side of the model name.
