Hello Pen People, If I've posted this in the "wrong" area of FPN, please accept my apology and grant me a modicum of immunity for this is my 1st ask for help!

 

Just got an 'older' used Sailor Lecoule, and surprise, surprise, surprise it will not take standard ink cartridges and I cannot identify the model of the converter to buy. This Lecoule was one of a few Japanese pens (Ok, 8) that I bought. Not a large $ purchase, but I want to use this pen!  The seller doesn't know, 5 different sellers of Sailor converters (eeebay) simply tell me that the converter they are selling works with Sailor pens, with no mention of the Lecoule. The reason I want to verify the converter model to buy, is that I read (somewhere in the internet ether) that the Lecoule requires a proprietary/unique cartridge/converter.

 

Sailor converter part numbers and descriptions:

 

14-0502-000 Sailor Pen fountain pen ink inhaler converter Slim
 
14-0500-000 Sailor Refills Standard Fountain Pen Ink Converter 

 

Soooo, Since it seems Sailor pens require proprietary ink supplies, that any Sailor converter/cartridge would be compatible with the Lecoule?  

 

A review of the Lecoule: https://www.penaddic...tain-pen-review

 

THank you in advance for your help!

My Lecole uses the standard Sailor converter. The slim one is only (AFAIK) for a model called Chalana. 

 

I rarely use mine - my other (more expensive) Sailors are better writers.
