Going To Buy A Conid - Please Show Me Yours!

Recommended Posts

I don't have photos right now ( and they look like the others) but I have a Slimline and a Minimalistica, both with the demo middle.

 

The Slimline is delrin on the section and the cap, while the M just has a Delrin cap.

 

If you are sensitive to slippery sections, I would stay away from the Delrin. I love the SL but find it is a little too slick. The M on the other hand, is clear right down to the section, and it is easier for me to write with. Both are great pens though.

 

Just my two cents.......

Received my second Conid on fountain pen day. Kingsize Flat top titanium demo with rhodianated F nib. The nib on my first Conid was much better, which was tuned by Francis.

Received the Modern Decoband a week later. Much nicer to write with. The nib on Conid seems pedestrian in comparison.

Honestly, Conid needs to be open to using nibs from other brands, like Pelikan and MB instead of sticking to bock. Bock is just too ordinary compared to others. Tuning isn't going to help. It's the basic character of the nib, the way nib is made.

I have both pelikans and Montblanc and love both, but in reality the Bock Titanium nibs on my Conids is far better than any of my Pelikans and most of my MBs! They are among my favorite nibs! Guess that is why there are so many brands, we each like different things. 😎

My first Conid had a titanium nib, which was nice. I got a rhodium plated one this time which isn't as great. I asked for extra flow on this, and it's still not as wet as the titanium one.

I guess I'll have to get a spare titanium nib now.

Bock Titanium nibs on my Conid

 

+ 100! Semi-flex. Wet. Shading, Colour Variation. Shading!

Taught me to write with the lightest touch.

Add lightness and simplicate.

That is so true! I can't seem to adjust to my Ti Conid nibs and have a gold on order. And for me, Pelikan nibs are the ones I go back to as a happy place.

Glad to hear that. I have 5 modern M800s, but they just dont do it for me. However I totally love the nibs on the vintage Pelikans in my collection! My 100/101/140s are spectacular!

      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
