My first Conid Bulkfiller (the Minimalistica) is in production and I can't wait so have it in my hands!
In my collection are a lot of Montblancs at the moment.
I'm thinking of selling some pens to be able to by a Conid Kingsize. 
But from my Montblancs I know that the 149 is a litte bit to big at the grip-section for me.
So I googled a lot but was not able to find the diameter of the Kingsize-grip...
Maybe it is also interesting for some other FPN-Members so I'm asking for some measurements of the diameter in the middle of the grip-section:
Montblanc 144: 9mm
Montblanc 146: 11,5mm
Montblanc 149: 13mm
On google I found the following - please confirm:
Conid Minimalistica: 11mm (I know there is no real grip-section...)
Conid Regular: 10,4mm
Conid Slimline: ?
Conid Kingsize: ?

I don't have my Minimalistica on me at the moment (I am getting its nib tuned), but from what I remember the section is fatter than the Montblanc 146. I can get back to you with measurements when I get the pen back.

    Can a nib be smoothed by psychokinesis?
