My personal "Home made" Bulkfiller prototype collection..



Recommended Posts

fountainbel

Hi fountain pen friends !

Hope you are doing well !
After my earlier post showing my GF piston filler collection, below some pictures my Bulkfiller prototypes collection
My personal collection contains all  4 Bulkfiller versions, being the Regular, Kingsize, Slimline and Minimalistica
Although most of the prototypes are Kingsizes in various materials, many made in beautiful celluloids.
These were specially made to convince Conid in using more exclusive materials.
Hope you will enjoy at least a few of these….
Stay safe and healthy !
Best regards,
Francis

Francis, those are beautiful! Thank you for sharing. This helps scratch the bulk filler itch, while we wait for Conid to get back into fighting action! 
also I really do hope Conid can be convinced to use some more of these wonderful materials some day.

Bravo! Thank you for sharing your wonderful collection of prototypes. 😍 

 

Though I wonder at the Rouge et Noir, a Bulkfiller really? Surely you jest?! 🤫 

 

My Bulkfiller bears the name FOUNTAINBEL and it is astounding to see all the work and craft behind the namesake.

 

Indeed a long journey to the masses.👋

 

With gratitude, thank you Conid and @fountainbel !

Thank you @fountainbel . As a beneficiary, I thank for the immense time, effort and devotion put into these pens. Tibaldis for everyone is probably out of the question, so I'll vote for the woven carbon fibre Minimalistica Kingsize 😁

Beautiful workmanship and engineering. Thank you for sharing.

 

Just for fun: of these, which ones are the "top three" pens for you? 🙂

 

Cheers.

Those are beautiful pens. I'm glad that I ordered my bulkfillers when I did.

I'm still trying to figure out how to list all my pens down here.

That was exactly my reaction too... Missed out on the "In Flanders Fields" but if there ever will be a kingsize or regular in Tibaldi Impero, I hope to be in the front row... Regardless the possible waiting...

 

Absolutely stunning collection @fountainbel!  My regular and CAISO remain in daily rotation... 

There are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
