Conid are my favorite pens, those pictures are great. I have a Monarch, Regular, and the Cavens pen and they're all great. My grail pen is the In Flanders Field model but good luck finding one of those...

Yeah, ?I wish I could find a Flanders. Any idea how many were made?

10 of each (flatop and streamline). So the odds are not good...

Yeah I'll likely never get one as so few were made and I'm assuming anyone who got one isn't parting with it. 

 

I've also seen a pic of a pair of Conids made with the old Omas Arco Verde and Arco Brown, but I'm assuming those are one-off prototypes or something. 

 

I jumped on the Cavens because even though I find the Slimline a bit small, I wanted another Conid with different material. I hope in the future they do start branching out to more different materials because I think their designs are wonderful, as is the fit and finish.

The green one is my grail pen. They are Francis' prototypes and I can't see him parting with either of them (sadly). :)
