Conway Stewart 236

later 1930s

About This Model

Conway Stewart was a major manufacturer of good to great fountain pens in England for a hundred years, from 1905-2005. During the pre-WWII years they sold far more pens than any other brand in England; one major author believes more than all the other companies' output combined. They were very well-made, good-looking, and great writers with soft, wet, and often flexible nibs. It is interesting that they produced a bewildering quantity of models and colors, including some bright floral patterns in casein during the pre-WWII shortage years.

About This Pen

The 236 was a mid-level Conway Stewart during the late 1930s, 13 cm long as usual for Conway Stewart, in marbled blue and black. This pen was just released from my personal collection to find a new owner, the first Conway Stewart I purchased and restored. It’s an attractive pen that shows a lot of use but cleaned up well. This one writes a smooth medium, and is a relatively fast writer. The CS5 nib is relatively firm, and feels solid. The gold trim is clean but show a bit of thinning, particularly on the clip. This is a pen meant for daily use, so enjoy it without worry!
