The connection between Jaxon and Conklin is still not widely known, with many collectors still believing that Jaxon licensed one of Conklin's filler patents. Old trade journals leave no doubt, however, that Jaxon pens were Conklin-made. Stud-fillers identical to the Jaxons are also found marked as Conklinettes, though these are very rare indeed.
