Sorry, I don't have calipers at my disposal (at least not anytime soon). I found a nice comparison / review that you may find helpful. At the very least there are images showing pretty clearly the difference in section size between the two models. Not to mention just a nice write up.

BTW: I forgot that the Regular also has different barrel choices. I have the consistent-diameter version, whereas there's a version that grows a little larger closer to the threads. If you look at the Conid site you'll see what I'm talking about. I wonder if my grip concerns would have been lessened if I had the Regular that has a slightly 'bulbous' barrel.

thanks for that, as i looked i thought about the section on my 823 which is not concave at all and very easy to hold, much of it has to do with material i guess ... so perhaps the minimalistica might work for me after all ... i owned a lamy studio which i simply could NOT keep from slipping through my fingers and it has marked me for life i think :-) ... i like the idea of the kingsize (will be watching your videos on this shortly) as well but it is pricey as a starting introduction to conid ... i continue to be fascinated by this pen

If anyone tires of their king size bulkfiller and wants to sell it for a reasonable price let me know. I have very large strong hands and I require a larger, heavier pen. Thanks.

congrats on a great pen and enjoy it  ;)


Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
