My Conid And Bock Nibs



Recommended Posts

I think I don't use my Conid as much because of the selection of Bock nibs. I have a couple of mediums, had to break arms to get a broad -- and of course I prefer something in a stub or a 1 mm italic. I just cant seem to source these nibs for my Conid. Many say you can use the Jowo 6, but I don't think it's a perfect fit. If one can use Jowo in Conids Horray! - but what's the definitive answer?

 

And what about the great places to source Bock nibs?

 

Thanks all - enjoy your Conids. I'm saving for another.

 

Bill

I have two Conids (a third is on order), both currently wear titanium Stubs. The nibs were all done by Conid. The Kingsize which was my first came with a Gold Fine point and I just never really liked it. When I placed an order for my Ebonite Regular I also ordered a Medium Titanium Stub for the Kingsize. The regular came with a Broad stub. Both of these are fantastic, in fact the regular is my favorite pen! The one on order will also come with a Broad Stub. My experience is that Conid will grind a nib as you like.

When you order the pen you have the ability to have them customize the nib to whatever you want.

I'm from Beaufort Ink - can I help here at all?

Bock nibs will screw straight into Conid pens as a direct replacement, and we have them in stock in EF, F, M and B, in all sizes, as well as 1.1, 1.5 and 1.9mm calligraphy nibs. They will also be in stock on BB from about the end of this week.

So, if you are ordering a new Conid, yes, I believe they will customise the nib for you, but if you already own one, actually you have a far greater choice than you previously thought.

I hope that helps

Thanks so much. That's what I wanted to hear. I have a standard Conid, what Bock nib size would that be? Probably a #6? Many thanks. Edited by Bill Wood

Bill, I'm not sure which of their models you regard as standard. The Slimline takes a size 5, the King Size takes a size 8, and the Minimalistica, Regular and Giraffe all take a size 6.

Thanks Phil - I'll be ordering.

I have or rather had a Bock Titanium Fine nib that was perfect.. I just messed it up by catching it on the CAISO when I put my cap back on. Sigh.. it'll have to go back to Conid for a fix.

Yikes – is it easy to catch the nib on the CAISO system?

it's not easy.. but if you don't pay attention, you won't notice it until it's too late. you just need to insert the cap at a slight angle to avoid the contact. I was just in a hurry.

The definitive answer......... here it goes.
You can use a N6 Jowo in a bock feed. It should work, but the opposite is not possible, well, you'll have problems to adjust the nib correctly, this is a bock on a jowo feed, as the feed that's used by jowo is wider, and Bock nibs are a bit narrower than the Jowo ones.....what else, just buy a steel nib and make the try. think htat the nib casings are different, so your conid has a bock case.

Here a link to a german retailer of Bock. it has a good selection of nibs.
http://www.writingturningflipping.com/?cat=c19_Federn-von-Bock.html
I speak german so for me is no problem, but you can always use google translator, Im giving you the link. You can also write to Francis or Werner, they will be more than happy to help.
You can buy nibs at FPNibs this retailer is based on spain and carries Jowo, prices are good.
https://www.fpnibs.com/

 

I think you can try a 14k N6 probably will be something in between. But always use the bock feed.

In general european retailers are cheaper than american ones, goulet pens and american sites of the sort are selling re-branded jowo nibs very expensive.

good luck!

PD jowo has no titanium nibs.

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
