Dear Compact users,

I am considering getting one of those little cuties (Magenta has caught my fancy), but one (for me quite decisive) question is still open:
Do these pens take converters, or don't they?

I've searched around this forum and have not found a definite answer by a user yet. Is there somebody out there who has actually tried it out?

Regards,
Katinka

Cross Compact does not work with either type of currently available converter from A T Cross. The pen is designed to be a cartridge user. There is the slim chance that a third party may have a converter. Good luck.

Thanks, cuza, for the info!

So now I can ponder the dilemma whether to do without the pen (and feel deprived) or to get it and fiddle with a syringe (and feel unnerved).

Life is SO hard sometimes ;-)

I've checked them. On Peyton Street this pen is out of stock. On Amazon, only in magenta. Thank you, anyway.

Well, you could place a WTB classified... Probably more effect than posting in 3 ancient topics...
