The #9 nib pens are eyedropper only. I believe they came in converter/cartridge models before but Romillo found that the converters were unable to keep up with the #9 size nib. The #7 models can have a c/c system though.


Thanks for the info.

I think the Soul is the only piston filler?

I think that's right. They used to offer button-fillers and other filling systems too. I don't know why they decided not to now. In any case, their eyedropper system works well. It looks like the reservoir of ink is insulated from the barrel so the heat from your hand doesn't make it burp.

Yeah I am not to sure about eyedroppers.

Thank you for patiently answering all my questions :thumbup:

Ahh, I see. There's always the #7 nib models with a c/c system. You're welcome!

The Romillo is probably the dream of all the fountain pen lovers. I think Romillo is the best craftsman making fountain pens.
