Thank you David for the confirmation and your nib swap. :thumbup:

 

Glad to hear another positive tailored pen experience :) that will help others down the road.

 

Back in the early days, I recall their Bock 250 (size 6ish) Regular standard in a few forms: current flat top cylindrical and more curved streamlined and sleek like the Minimalistica form; now only the cylindrical form remains :unsure:

 

I would have gone Regular Sleek or even Streamlined but alas not an early adopter. :wallbash:

 

Maybe when the dust settles and the reboot process launches, we'll see a phoenix rebirth or other new models in the configurator. :P

 

 

Be well and enjoy pens ! :happyberet:

 

When I bought my Standard Bulkfiller, I really wanted a "streamlined" one, but they were only making that in the over-sized model. I don't recall that they ever made a streamlined Minimalistica.

They produce the cigar-shaped Avda-Phi version of the Minimalistica, the only variant for that model.

Vintage. Cursive italic. Iron gall.

In visiting the Conid website today, the site still says that order-taking remains in abeyance and that they have 253 orders they're trying to fill.

Yep. I'm just waiting and hoping.

I sadly am still waiting for my order placed in Aug 2019 of a regular bulkfiller. At least its good to see that some people are getting their orders from roughly the same time period of which i ordered.I hope I'm next. The whole lack of communication is very concerning

Oh wow. They killed the Streamline and Sleek Regulars. I never liked the Sleek - just seemed to cut ink capacity for no reason, but I really like my delrin Streamline. That said, I think I prefer my full-demo FPR Flat-top...

Too many pens; too little writing.

Hi Conid friends!

Good news, Conid twill restart accepting orders as from September 2020
The Covid 19 pandemic was - and still is- seriously in Belgium, which delayed the elimination of their backlog
They have started production of the parts , assuring shorter delivery times in the future
Keep you safe and healthy !
Best regards,
Francis

That’s good news indeed!

Did you perhaps send out a newsletter? I haven’t received one, but perhaps it has been hidden in my spam box

This is a great company

 

The made great pens, and I'm happy to have one.  As far as being a great company, I'd have to disagree; poor management caused them to cease production. Here's hoping they are able to adjust, and reopen when conditions allow.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
