Schneider ceod?

Anyone here come across one of these (and do you keep wanting to spell it coed too)? I'm curious (my eternal quest for budget gems) but the only reviews I can find seem to be for the Base.

I have one of these and two of the italian "Buffetti handle" variant, which is basically the same pen with another cap and branding, some details changed but same feed and nib, and also produced by Schneider. It is a good pen, doesn't dry quickly and the nib is good (harder than the nib of the Base, more like a nail) . I'm a huge fan of Schneider fountains pen: this series and the Base series are my favourites.

What are the sections like on the Ceod? I can't tell from the pics I'm seeing whether they're those triangular 'put your fingers here' ones or round but with a lip at the bottom.

The section of the Ceod is mildly triangular. It has three spots to put the fingers on (two on the top and one below). It isn't triangular like a Lamy Safari, which is sharp edged. It is kind of soft and rounded, but nevertheless is triangular. 

The Base Kid - the one that I have - is kind of triangular as well, but it has only two spot to put the fingers on, both on the right side (top and bottom) and nothing on the left side. 

 

For longer writing session I find the Ceod more confortable than the Base Kid.

Drat. Basically if it's triangular at all I just don't ejoy the writing experience as much. Just evicted a Jinhao X450 which had noting more than three little oval indentations in a round section, but I just don't like the feel of them in my hand.

I am looking into cheap gems too! I really like these brand's designs. I have a particular neurosis that drives me to get things in trios... and above! So I have now three Safari Lamys in bright colours, three Caran d'Ache Vernis in three bright colors, and four Kaweco sports in four bright colours. Looking for the next one to buy at least tw of! 😇
