Pens With Same Size/shape As Noodler's Konrad

This may seem like an odd request, but I've been thinking about this for a while now. So, the first time I bought a Noodler's Konrad, I was stunned at how perfectly it fitted my hand...Although the Lamy 2000 is my favorite pen (due to various reasons), the Konrad is still the better shaped pen for me. That being said, do you know pens with the same size/shape as the Noodler's Konrad? (not the Ebonite or Acrylic...those are longer)

 

Cheers

Look into both the Pilot Custom Heritage 92 and the Pelikan M200 or M400. These pens are similar in size and shape, and have reputations as solid performers.

I'm too new to FPs to know what else might feel as good, but that makes me also too new to avoid asking: Why look any further than the Konrad? I only ask because Goulet sells alternate nibs for the Ahab / Konrad, XF up to 1.5mm stub italic, and so if you disliked the flex aspects you could simply put a non-flex nib on it and be content.

 

...it IS possible to be content in this hobby, right?

Pens: TWSBI Diamond 580-AL (M), TWSBI Eco (M)

Lamy Safari { Vista (M); Charcoal (M); Charcoal (1.1mm SI)},

Noodler's Ahab (Cardinal Darkness, Blue Poseidon Pearl, Clear Demo, King Philip Purple Demo)

Retro 51 Tornado EXT in Lincoln (copper) (M)

Inks: Noodler's: 54th Massachusetts, Apache Sunset, Red Black, BSiARIcelandic Minty Bathwater, Lexington Grey, Liberty's Elysium, Old Manhattan Blackest Black

I'm with you here, if a pen is great and you can swap nibs why not just stick with it? I've done that with my Pilots (Metropolitan, 78G, Penmanship and Plumix) and have no regrets.

Thank you for the suggestion...I found the Pilot CH92 at a very nice price in my country (~$160 shipped), smoke color and M nib, ordered one just a few minutes ago...can't wait for it to arrive!
