Recommended Posts

can anyone give me a heads up as to what gold #8 nibs people have swapped into their conid kingsize with a high level of compatibility ?

 

thinking of buying a kingsize and wonder if there are options for nib swapping with this particular model ?

The default is Bock #8 nibs so they should all fit without much of any issue. If you buy an adapter collar from flexible nib factory your can use nibs from an MB 149 or Sailor KOP. This saves trying to modify the feed and collar to work properly.

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

Bock Titanium!

 

I have a strong memory of reading a post about a person who had Flexible Nib Factory make a custom made #8 housing to fit #6 nibs to fit Conid Kingsize. More fun for less $

 

FNF also makes custom Bock housings for MB 149 and Sailor KOP to fit the Kingsize. (zaddick beat me to it)

It is my understanding that Waterman Emblem will fit.

Maybe Onoto #7? (8.4mm wide)

nibs.com has a couple of Weidlich #8s

Being located in the US, what are the best options to buy Bock 8 nibs or other replacement nibs? Ive only been able to find Appelboom carrying a m1000 nib (which j believe should fit in the standard bock 380 housing/feed unit ) and FP Nibs with Bock style 380 nib and housing units (are these actually Bock nibs?), and Beaufort ink has some Bock 380 nibs.

 

Any suggestions or recent experience with these?

you can buy a spare nib from Conid.

Their website indicates that spare nibs cant be ordered from them at this time.

I have purchased several Bock nibs from Beaufort without issue. A Bock Ti 0.6 stub is on it's way from FPNibs; one of several that Pablo has ground for me.

I've also purchased some nibs from them. Not for my Conid but for other pens. No issue having them shipped to the US. https://www.beaufortink.co.uk/bock-fountain-pen-nibs/bock-standard-size-8-fountain-pen-nibs-type-380/

I've purchased several #6 nibs from Beaufort Ink, and they do list both gold and titanium in #8. Excellent service.

      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
