The last [[Conklin]] important model was the [[Nozac]], designed by ''Louis Vavrik'' and introduced in 1931. [[Nozac]] is the only American pen equipped with a [[piston filler]]; it had a transparent tank with large ink capacity (further highlighted, since 1934, by the ''word gauge'', a scale that measured the number of words remaining). The pen, produced in beautiful color and with a multifaceted body, is one of the best model of that time, but the mechanism, derived from that one of a mechanical pencil, was not particularly robust and efficient and the pen did not have the success that it would have deserved. In 1937 a [[plunger filler]] version of [[Nozac]], called [[One Stroke]], was produced.

Ad oggi, come accaduto per molti altri marchi storici, la [[Conklin]] è stata rifondata ed opera dal 2000 come ''Conklin Pen Co. Inc.'', le sue penne (stilografiche e non) sono sostanzialmente delle repliche dei modelli di successo degli anni d'oro, e come per la maggior parte delle penne moderne, non hanno nessuna qualità particolare che le distingua rispetto alle penne d'epoca.
