can anyone give me a heads up as to what gold #8 nibs people have swapped into their conid kingsize with a high level of compatibility ?

thinking of buying a kingsize and wonder if there are options for nib swapping with this particular model ?

The default is Bock #8 nibs so they should all fit without much of any issue. If you buy an adapter collar from flexible nib factory your can use nibs from an MB 149 or Sailor KOP. This saves trying to modify the feed and collar to work properly.


If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Bock Titanium!

 

I have a strong memory of reading a post about a person who had Flexible Nib Factory make a custom made #8 housing to fit #6 nibs to fit Conid Kingsize. More fun for less $

 

FNF also makes custom Bock housings for MB 149 and Sailor KOP to fit the Kingsize. (zaddick beat me to it)

It is my understanding that Waterman Emblem will fit.

Maybe Onoto #7? (8.4mm wide)

nibs.com has a couple of Weidlich #8s

Being located in the US, what are the best options to buy Bock 8 nibs or other replacement nibs? Ive only been able to find Appelboom carrying a m1000 nib (which j believe should fit in the standard bock 380 housing/feed unit ) and FP Nibs with Bock style 380 nib and housing units (are these actually Bock nibs?), and Beaufort ink has some Bock 380 nibs.

Any suggestions or recent experience with these?

Their website indicates that spare nibs cant be ordered from them at this time.

I have purchased several Bock nibs from Beaufort without issue. A Bock Ti 0.6 stub is on it's way from FPNibs; one of several that Pablo has ground for me.

I've also purchased some nibs from them. Not for my Conid but for other pens. No issue having them shipped to the US. https://www.beaufort...-nibs-type-380/

I've purchased several #6 nibs from Beaufort Ink, and they do list both gold and titanium in #8.  Excellent service.

Well, waiting on a broad m1000 nib that I might have stubbed. I see BB on the horizon.
