Can anyone make a short list of Vintage Pens With Large Ink Capacities? I'm enjoying expanding my vintage pen collection. At present, a 1947 Parker Vacumatic, a 1941 and 1945 Skyline Eversharp. Thanks for the help. jim
I've recently thought about getting a con 70 converter and trying to adapt it for sailor pens. I even thought about getting someone print the converter at the connection end so that it is compatible with sailor, whilst marinating the con 70 mechanism at the top.

One of the trade-offs to the gorgeous design (for those who like this particular style) is a rather opaque and narrow ink window. It's possible to determine the ink level if you hold the pen horizontally, wait a few moments for the ink to settle, hold it up to a bright light and squint sideways.
