considered well made for Depression era pens
Posted by Len Provisor on August 11, 2017, 9:00 pm, in reply to "Conklin All American Green Etched Self Filling Rubber Sack Pen c1936 "
The All American was a Depression period lower priced fountain pen, produced to help Conklin survive competition from the Big Four Parker, Sheaffer, Eversharp and Waterman. Conklin had a great history from the turn of the century but simply could not keep up with the Big Four.
Conklin brand was revived in the early 2000's and today is produced by Yafa making several models reminiscent of the original products.
Well made and reasonably priced plus some pretty nice Limited Editions.
