Conid With White Delrin?


Recommended Posts

Calling all Conid enablers . . .


I've had my Minimalistica for just over three weeks and am now on my third fill with it; to say that I am enthralled with this pen would be something of an understatement. In fact, after about a week of using the Conid I cleaned and stored the other six of my pens that I had inked - they haven't seen the light of day (such as there is in Alaska at this time of year :) ). Short story shorter, I've got the means for another Conid and the Slimline has caught my eye. I seem to recall a picture of a Conid that was made with the white delrin rather than black, but for the life of me I can't recall where. Does such a pen exist? or did I just dream it? I would love to see the picture again before I go and order up a rather large boondoggle.


And speaking of that, does anyone know if the white delrin would be prone to staining? I'm guessing not since white is an option for the piston on the Slimline already.

Also, I have the Ti fine nib on my Minimalistica and love it. Is the #5 Ti nib (or the #5 Bock nibs in general) a markedly different writing experience over the #6 nibs?



It's either that or the new Kindle Oasis . . .

I remember seeing one - the minimalistica - partially made with white delrin on reddit. The delrin parts were only the knob and the smaller bit to the cap.

I have a Minimalistica and a Slimline. The nib on the SL is finer than the larger nib.



I love both but the delrin section on the Slimline is a little slippery for me

Thank you. I find it a bit surprising the delrin is more slippery than the acrylic is though.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
