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.
