The story of the pen began back in March 2015 at the Cologne pen show in Germany. Both Conid and Fontoplumo had a table there. During the day, I was seen visiting the Conid stand several times. Something on display had caught my attention. What was it? Nothing less than the Kingsize Flanders Fields, a unique Conid memorial pen. I just couldn’t get it out of my head. It had sparked my interest and I was loath to go home without it. My eagerness and enthusiasm didn’t go unnoticed by Werner and as the day drew to a close, he agreed to sell it to me.

Soon afterwards, another surprise was in store for me. I received an invitation to visit the factory itself. My lovely wife and I were given a fascinating guided tour, culminating in an animated discussion about special edition pens. As I am Dutch, I had decided to wear an orange jacket that day. So it was orange that captured Werner’s imagination. A second meeting followed. Again, we talked about a special edition pen but more seriously this time. Like many good things in life, good ideas need time to age.͟

That is how the Conid Monarch Bulkfiller was born.

With this pen, Fontoplumo and Conid pay homage to orange, the colour closely associated not only with the people of the Netherlands but also with their royal house. According to legend, pioneers from Europe, especially those from Holland and England, who crossed the Atlantic to settle in America were awestruck at the sight of beautiful orange butterflies. Consequently, they named the species Monarch after William of Orange, the king who also was William III of England.

The butterfly is, moreover, a symbol of transformation. Bearing this in mind, we hope that the Monarch pen will help you embrace personal change and smooth the path towards your dreams and aspirations.

Masterpiece

This was one of my most awaited pens of 2017, with Frank keeping me in the dark about it till the day it was launched. By Frank's generosity, i was able to get the number i wanted (07/25). The orange ebonite was lovely and warm to hold without being gaudy.
As expected from Conid, the nib was tuned perfectly and wrote exactly as desired, mine was a rhodinated gold broad nib and lay down a smooth wet line, without any skipping on every paper i haved used.
Defintely worth the wait and worth every penny it cost. Kudos to Frank and the folks at Conid for making this pen.
