So, I can bet everyone on this topic is also a fountain pen fanatic!  I am.  So here's my question, we all know that the Conid Bulkfiller is a unique type of item.  Most of the "commercial" fountain pen makers have the accompanying ball/rollerball pen for their fountain pen.  Conid doesn't.  So my question to you Aficionado's (respectfully) what ballpoint or roller ball would be a nice accompaniment in terms of cool for the Conid Buikfiller?

Well. As a "fountain pen fanatic" I'd get another Bulkfiller. :D

You might want to indicate which model and configuration Conid you have in mind.

Maybe email conid and ask if they could custom make something? If you're in for a conid cost, you can probably afford something custom.

Well fact is I obtained one at a very reasonable price and it's a bucket list purchase. So I'm not interested in paying retail for conid ballpoint. I thought someone may have already done this.

Your Conid Bulkfiller might suffer in depression sitting next to a ballpoint  ;)

If you're okay with a metal pen that matches the industrial feel of a conid, Karas Kustoms and Tactile Turn both make impressive rollerballs.

 

As far as a clear acrylic design, apart from a rollerball insert in a PenBBS pen (so it'd still be using FP ink) I can't think of anything. You'd be best set just going with a rollerball you really, really like.

 

The montegrappa nerouno has a pretty whimsical, interesting finish that might play well with a conid.

 

I just don't really care for FP/Rollerball sets. I prefer a pen/pencil set.
