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™. 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 covers the pen’s solid brass body providing key performance features giving additional vibrancy, 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 most importantly, extremely durable, can reduce friction, and serve as a barrier against any potential damage.
The barrel and the cap display glistening shades of gold shimmer every time the pen turns. Alluring Lapis blue color PVD creates a shiny mirror-like effect covering the PVD Blue pen’s body and cap. Rose gold plating of PVD Blue pen deepens the rich, vibrant blue color of each pen. The cap top is embellished with the Conklin® Est. 1898 logo and the cap band are engraved with the famous Duragraph™ model script font with three Conklin® crescent logos on either side of the model name.
