Introducing the Conklin Duragraph Merlot!

Conklin Duragraph Merlot

**As of 12/11/17, we have sold out of this limited production of this pen and won’t be getting any more. We do have the Conklin Duragraph Purple Nights available.**

We’re excited to announce a new Goulet-exclusive fountain pen, the Conklin Duragraph in Merlot! Take a sip of this deep red beauty that boasts the classic vintage design you know and love from the Duragaph. The barrel of this limited-production color is a stunning deep red/purple flecked color that’s complemented perfectly by the black cap and silver trim.

Duragraph Merlot

It comes with a standard international converter, so you can start writing with your favorite bottled ink right away. It features a stainless steel nib in medium or 1.1mm stub italic. The Fine & Medium come with a two-tone nib, while the stub features a polished steel nib. Of course, the Duragraph also takes #6 nibs, so you can swap on a Goulet nib if you want to switch from EF to 1.5mm stub in a jiffy.

On top of that, for a limited time, receive a free bottle of Monteverde ink ($15 value!) with a purchase of this Duragraph. This incredible value makes it a great gift for yourself or a loved one this holiday season.

    Gorgeous!

  • David L.

    Boy, do I have the worst timing! Two days ago, I bought an All-American and now this comes out. I can’t do anything but laugh. Lets hope that I can soon spare $35, because this is a dream come true! How many will there be?

    • Tom Johnson

      David, what I love about the All American pens is that the grip and cap are both made in the same resin as the body. This Merlot resin would make an awesome All American. Which color did you get?

      • David L.

        That’s exactly what attracted me to it! I bought the Lapis Blue. This certainly would make an amazing All-American!

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          My favorite All-American color!

          • David L.

            Mine as well! I just need to bear the wait. I just can’t justify paying more for faster shipping. πŸ˜‰

          • Tom Johnson

            That Lapis All American is a fantastic looking pen. With the gold clip, the whole design looks super. I know you’ll be happy. I’ll probably get my Nightfall in about 19 hours from now. The wait for a new pen is such sweet pain isn’t it.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      I believe this is our only shipment of the pens. They were a limited run. The Fines will be here at a later time so if these sell out, you can get a fine and swap the nib in the worst case πŸ™‚

    • Nicole Price

      They came back in stock today, and I jumped on the chance to grab one of these beauties!

  • Tom Johnson

    The resin in this pen is stunning, I love rich deep burgundy (and Merlot) colors. A good classic pen, and Monteverde pens are dependable pens. The price is the most surprising of all! I’ll toast a glass of Merlot to this new pen🍷

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      It’s coming home to my pen case haha! All three of the community coordinators ordered the stub nibs. My Collier will be in good company when I get it in two weeks.

      • Tom Johnson

        I got the 1.1 stub nib on my Nightfall Lydia. Love them. $35 is really something, I bet you sell out soon. What a stocking stuffer these pens would be.

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          You’re so right! Great stocking stuffer, or gift for a loved one. Especially with the free ink.

  • Derek Perrault

    Amazing. Instabuy even at full price. This deal is ridic.

  • Thudthwacker

    I *really, really* don’t need another pen. But wow — the resin really is beautiful, and for $35 and *including* that bottle of Fireopal I’ve been meaning to buy anyway…

  • AK

    Well, I just broke my “don’t buy yourself presents until after Christmas” rule. What a deal – the $55 I paid for my first Duragraph 1.1 stub was worth every penny.

  • Angel

    Wow – it looks like the 1.1 stub is sold out already!! This pen is stunning. I can’t even say how much I love this color. I was trying to decide if I was going to ask my husband for the 1.1 stub or wait for the “fine” for my birthday… Looks like my decision was made for me. I’m going to be keeping a close eye out for my email notifications! I can’t believe it comes with a 90ml bottle of ink, a converter, and is a #6 nib. An amazing deal.

  • Ryan K.

    Are they really sold out already? 😧

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Sorry, Ryan, yes, but we will be getting more.

  • Larina

    I can’t believe they’re sold out… πŸ™ Any idea when the fines will be in?

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      We are waiting for a firm date. I will update when we have one πŸ™‚

      • Larina

        Thanks! πŸ™‚

  • Karen

    Wow! Those sold out fast. Just as I was about cry, I saw the question about when the fine nibs would come. Hallelujah! I still have a chance.

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      We will actually be getting more Medium and Stub, rather than Fine. πŸ™‚ They should be here soon.

      • NSB

        Does this mean you will not be getting Fine at all? Or that Fine will arrive later still?

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          We will not be getting fine at all. We opted to get more Mediums and Stubs instead.

          • NSB

            Thank you, I got a medium. Seems like their Medium is on the thin side vs. my Lamy Fine and Extra Fine, based on the NibNook comparison. Too bad all the ink colors I wanted were sold out πŸ™

  • Ann Skelley

    Hoping these come in soon..husband made the mistake of showing me the post (unfortunately too late to buy), now I have to wait…/sigh…

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      We just restocked them πŸ™‚ The stub sold out again and we will get a few more next week but this is the last of the medium.

      • Ann Skelley

        and already sold out again πŸ™

        • Angel

          The website says they’re getting some more stubs in on Monday. Hope you’re able to pick one up!

  • Daniel E Lampert

    How many are there in the world?

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      Just the 500 that we received as far as I know

      • Dana

        Is it the same quantity for the Purple Nights?

        • Lydia At Goulet Pens

          No, the purple nights is a regular edition I believe so they will be around πŸ™‚
