There is also a Manuscript converter that I assume fits the Dodec, but some of the super cheap Chinese converters may also fit.

By the way, if you live in England, almost any school supply house, online or otherwise, can get the Dodec for you in packs of 12 for around £12, and in packs of 40 (yes, FORTY) for around £30 including VAT and shipping. That's only about a dollar per pen...They are at least $4 on amazon.com including shipping, more often $5. You see there is a big advantage to living in a country that still makes and uses fountain pens.
OK, you don't have to rub salt in the wound.
Isn't it wonderful, though, to find a simple, inexpensive pen that is just a joy to write with?

They write VERY smooth, and if you add a little Ivory Dish Detergent to your ink, they write very wet too. The Manuscript ink in the cartridges is not very good, but it's simple enough of course to replace it with some Quink (or your favortite ink) using a syringe.
I don't much like the clunky sort of cap, but I believe I saw a site somewhere with Dodecs that have more traditional-style caps.
Finally, the Dodecs take Parker converters. Also cheap Chinese Jinhao converters that I got on amazon (5 for just $6 shipped).

Still don't like the clunky cap. Maybe paint it?

Wouldn't write at all with the lousy Manuscript ink tho.
