Bummer. I was hoping that mine would be better since the converter's overall design is nice and attractive.

 

At least it's not a proprietary design. Any old standard international converter will fit.

So it's really an international converter, not a Platinum converter, as it appears to be?


Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

I checked mine. International converter (jinhao) fits. Platinum converter does not fit .

Really bizarre, but yes. SI converter all the way.

 

I did just discover that the PenBBS pens all take a parker converter.... Because... reasons?

I couldn't get any converter other than the one that came with it to fit in my 308.

On another note, for those of you who prefer a plain vanilla nib broader than EF, Delike now offers this pen and their New Moon 2 with a M nib, supposedly with a 0.58~0.6mm line width.

I don't know what availability is like outside China, but I've got one of the nib units coming in the mail and will do a writing sample comparison once it gets here.

The parker converter is a bit tight but it does fit.

My medium nib for this pen came yesterday and it is outstanding. I just screwed it in, filled the pen, and it writes a nice smooth and wet 0.7mm-ish line. Delike is really doing a great job with their nibs.
