Match A Conid Bulkfiller

Recommended Posts

So, I can bet everyone on this topic is also a fountain pen fanatic! I am. So here's my question, we all know that the Conid Bulkfiller is a unique type of item. Most of the "commercial" fountain pen makers have the accompanying ball/rollerball pen for their fountain pen. Conid doesn't. So my question to you Aficionado's (respectfully) what ballpoint or roller ball would be a nice accompaniment in terms of cool for the Conid Buikfiller?

Well. As a "fountain pen fanatic" I'd get another Bulkfiller. :D

You might want to indicate which model and configuration Conid you have in mind.

Add lightness and simplicate.

Maybe email conid and ask if they could custom make something? If you're in for a conid cost, you can probably afford something custom.

Well fact is I obtained one at a very reasonable price and it's a bucket list purchase. So I'm not interested in paying retail for conid ballpoint. I thought someone may have already done this.

If you're okay with a metal pen that matches the industrial feel of a conid, Karas Kustoms and Tactile Turn both make impressive rollerballs.

 

As far as a clear acrylic design, apart from a rollerball insert in a PenBBS pen (so it'd still be using FP ink) I can't think of anything. You'd be best set just going with a rollerball you really, really like.

 

The montegrappa nerouno has a pretty whimsical, interesting finish that might play well with a conid.

 

I just don't really care for FP/Rollerball sets. I prefer a pen/pencil set.

      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
