I asked Conid whether an ebonite Minimalistica would be possible. Sadly I got a response of no because of stock logistics.

 

Would anyone else be interested in an ebonite model for the pen?

An ebonite Minimalistica would be great. There's not much to dislike about the Minimalistica except the plastic barrel is gets a little slippery. Whereas my experience with ebonite in general is a little more desireable. 


I like to write or make short videos about my fountain pens such as the Conid Bulkfiller or Pilot Urushi 845 BB:

Interesting point regarding the plastic version. I'm a fan of demonstrators so I would never get one. I agree that the Minimalistica is a solid pen. My only caveat is that I find the piston knob to be a bit small during cleaning/refilling. I find that my fingers dig into the sides of the piston knob when I pull up and down.

Conid does make a Minimalistica in Delrin Black for those who do not enjoy the look of a demonstrator.
 
I have a Slimline demonstrator and it is one of my favourite pens. It is to my way of thinking,  essentially perfect. By that I mean, there is nothing that I would improve.
 
Enjoy your Conid pens.

Why carry one pen when four will do!
