Well, I have actually never seen a pen manufacturer list those, to be very honest. And so far we have not seen a review yet - that would be a bit difficult at these early stages.
 
Regardless, I weighed one of the pens for you:
- unfilled, entire pen: 29.4 grams
- cap: 7.6 grams
- pen, uncapped, unfilled: 21.8 grams
- filled, entire pen: 32.4 grams
- pen, uncapped, filled: 24.8 grams
 
I haven't got my calliper handy, so measurements will have to be with a ruler for now.
Length pen, capped: 142 mm
Length cap: 64 mm
Length pen, uncapped: 136 mm
Maximum thickness pen: 14.4 mm
Thickness section, minimum: 11.8 mm
Nib length protruding from section: 25.3 mm
Maximum cap thickness (excluding clip): 16 mm
 
All length and thickness measurements are approximate, obviously, but fairly close.
 
The interesting thing is that although the pen is, relatively speaking, fairly short for its size, only 6 mm longer than, e.g., the Etrurias LEs we did in 2012, the pen itself is significantly longer than the same, by a full cm.
 
HTH, warm regards, Wim


I thought that this is a standard flat top Kingsize bulkfiller- other than the material - measurements are on Conid web site. Not for section thickness or cap length though.

Thank you, Bill,

 

Beautiful pictures of a beautiful pen!

 

If you don't mind too much, I will refer people who are interested in this pen to your pictures here :).

 

Warmest regards, Wim

I don't mind at all. When I post pictures here I do so hoping that they will be useful for the community.

In that case you won't mind that I will share them with the CONID Facebook group, with credits to you, ofcourse.

Hi Tojusi,

 

Good one, my bad; I completely overlooked that :).

Wim, should this thread perhaps be locked as the other one ("Last chance before Christmas delivery") is more current?

 

And... 012 received 15 minutes ago! Woop woop! :bunny01:
