You mean MB once told you that you can use baloney in their pens?

I must admit that I only use Mb ink in my Mb 146's and 149 piston fillers, because they are more difficult to clean than CC fillers. However, I'm more adventurous with other brand inks in my 147 cartridge filler.

I wouldn't risk a heavily saturated ink that might permanently colour the window in one of my piston fillers.
