Conid Compatable Nibs?



Recommended Posts

I was hoping some of you might be able to chime in, with compatible sized nibs for the larger nibbed Conids? I have heard others putting n vintage MB nibs in them, and I was curious what other nibs may fit. Would a Visconti Dreamtouch palladium nib fit? How about a Pilot #15 nib? I am aware that Bock makes many nibs out there for other companies, but their specific dimensions may be proprietary.

Both you mentioned are too small. You need a nib with a wider base. The Bock nibs and MB nibs are all I have seen fitted to the kingsize Conid pens.

If you want less blah, blah, blah and more pictures, follow me on Instagram!

Doesnt Bock make Viscontims nibs? I may remember this wrong.

 

And I think the Kingsize is the only model using a #8 nib, so you can use a #6 on the regular of minimalistica.

 

 

And to the original question, I dont think Conid uses a proprietary size, so any correctly sized Bock nib should work. Some of my Conids even came with a standard Bock branded nib. Conid isnt a big enough manufacturer to pay for custom sized nibs though they do have some custom branding.

And I think theres a nib compatibility page buried somewhere on Conids site. If not and you have something specific in mind, just send them an email and theyll let you know. I hope to see what you end up with.

Yes, you are right on all counts. I guess I just took the "larger nib" comment to mean kingsize Conids.

Youre right; I read too fast and missed the larger comment. Hopefully my comment will be useful to some future reader if not the OP.

If you have something specific (nib) in mind, contact Conid about it. They will make a section according to that nib (at an extra cost). Someone I know is in the process of getting a kingsize with M1000 nib so it can be done.

Thanks for the info. I've always thought about getting a Sailor KOP nib on a Conid kingsize.

You're welcome. Where are you going to get a KOP nib from?

I already have a KOP right now. I'm thinking about getting another KOP anyways, so I figure I could put one of the two nibs in a Conid if needed.

You can't fit a Pilot #15 on the Regular or the Minimlistica because it has a special shape in the section, I've already tried without success.

But you can fit a MB 146 vintage nib from 50's, I put an OB on a Minimalistica and it's just perfect.

Ive used Waterman Emblem and MB 149 nibs on my Kingsizes, and (vintage) 146 nibs on the regular. All required special collars for the feed, but Conid were happy to supply them.

 

That said, the Ti Bock nibs are lovely...

Too many pens; too little writing.

I asked Flexible Nib Factory if they are still making the housing to allow the Platinum 3776 nib/feed fit into the Minimalistica, their reply:

 

Hello, Adam:

I provide only an ebonite housing. You will insert your Platinum 3776 nib and feed into the housing, and then screw that assembly into the pen. Price is $10, plus $3 shipping in the USA, $9.50 in Canada, or $13 overseas. If this is acceptable, I can send you a PayPal invoice and ship upon payment, as this housing B3776E, is in stock.
Thanks for your interest in our products.
Regards,

Early this year I ordered a Conid regular demonstrator bulkfiller without a nib. I had some #6 stainless steel nibs. In the Conid, I tried a F-C EF, a Goulet EF, an Edison EF, and a Nemosyne nib. While all these nibs fit nicely in the Conid, I favor my Nemosyne EF nib in my Conid.

If it matters, F-C EF, a Goulet EF, an Edison EF, F-C EF, a Goulet EF, an Edison EF are Jowo while CONID uses Bock.

Why do you favor the Nemosyne?

The Nemosine just has a slightly finer EF than the other ones.

I heard this weekend that you can contact Conid and buy a modified housing designed to fit the nib of your choice. Including Jowo, Pelikan, Montblanc and probably others.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
