Does anyone know how I might get my hands on one of the old Lamy squeeze converters (pictured below)?

Thanks to haywoody for alerting me to the existence of this converter, which is where I also got the image (http://www.fountainp...67-lamy-safari/).

The squeeze converter will have a sac.  You might have to resac it.  If you do get one and then if you resac it, I recommend you use a PVC sac.  Unless you want to use it in a celluloid pen.

Yes, they are out of production, alas.

 

Does anyone know how I might find a used one?

 

Many thanks,

Fair question!

 

I like Lamy, and I like different filling systems. So I'd like to have one of these converters, even though I am sure that the piston is better.

I understand...mine is silver finish and plastic sac was hard to squeeze so did not hold much ink... :roller1:

Hello!

 

The Lamy squeeze converter is the correct converter for very early production Lamy Safari fountain pens, and, although later Lamy converters should work in the early Safari pens, for some collectors, the early squeeze converter would be important.

 

The following two sources may be able to help you locate an early, Lamy squeeze converter:

 

Rolf Theil was at https://www.missing-pen.com/  but that doesn't seem to be working correctly. He is also active on eBay as "missing-pen."  His email is: missing-pen@t-online.de or try sending him a message via eBay. I have had good service from him in the past.

Regina Martini at: https://www.martiniauctions.com/  I have also had very good service from Regina Martini.

 

They are excellent sources for German and other European writing instruments, including parts.  

 

Good luck!

Regards, Robert
