I figured there are so many pros on here, and tinkerers, this has probably been done. Any feedback on long term use of the Kaweco short standard international cartridge jammed onto the feed. The fit was nice and tight and the flow started right away. May be sacrilegious but I was jonesing to use it again with nary a correct cartridge or converter at hand. Thoughts?

In the same vain - did anybody try the kaweco bulb converter in the same family of pens?

I've used a small Kaweco bulb converter in a slender Targa and it seemed to work well enough.

I did put the squeeze converter on there first, but I really dislike it overall. I did fit tightly yes.

I've been using standard international cartridges and converters in Sheaffer Imperials for years without a single incident.
