|The Empire, a fountain pen with vintage appeal and elegance mixed with a modern bold style. Empire, meaning absolute sway, was the inspiration behind this daring new design. Torpedo shaped with tapered ends, each Empire is made from quality shimmering acrylic resins and is engineered to perfections, creating its distinctive and unforgettable fluted cap and body design. A timeless new model, the Empire not only gives each writing instrument a unique shape, but an ergonomic and sculpted feel, perfect for daily writing. Paired with engraved silver accents, the clip displays the legendary Conklin trademarked name which is painstakingly hand painted in blue lacquer, while the cap band is painted red. Along with a daring new appearance is a hidden mechanism, our all-new twist magnet lock system and allows a swift, soft and pleasing opening and closure. Each fountain pen comes with Conklin’s famous two-tone nib in sizes Extra fine, fine, medium, broad and 1.1mm stub. Fountain pen fills via standard cartridge or converter (included). Each Conklin fine writing instrument is housed in a luxury gift box.
