Hi Conid fans! 

Below a link to the Conid site on which you can see this new "Slimline" bulk filler version.

Also enjoy the wonderful story of Mr Cavens, a dedicated teacher who insisted to remain a first grade teacher so he could guide and learn his pupils during their first writing steps.

Enjoy !

best regards,

Francis

I got to try one of the Slimline pens last spring at a workshop at the Baltimore/Washington Pen Show.  Liked the size of it a lot.  

 Another pen to add to the "when I have money" list....  I really need to stop reading FPN ("Danger!  Danger, Will Robinson!"  :wallbash:

Wonderful looking pen, just wish it had a way to see ink level. Or is the material translucent enough that with a strong backlight you can?

Both the  "Minimalistica " and the "Slimline" Bulkfillers d'ont feature an ink window.

And on the Cavens pen the barrel is not translucent .

That is a really nice looking pen! :) Hope to add that and a few more Conids to my collection at some point.

The Slimline doesn't do much for me but I really like the material and finishes of the Cavens pen.

A Regular with the Cavens colored material or one of the other colors  you have posted prototypes of?

I'm with others that prefer a "fatter" pen.

 

But it certainly is a beautiful material (and beautiful story).
