  1. Sharing some pictures of a new model by the Airmail Pen Company APCO located in Mumbai. They call it simply the 71JB. But I think it needs an appropriate suffix to differentiate it from the regular 71JB. I think 71JBRCC should describe it well. R for regular filling (ED) CC for cartridge converter. This pen has a new design on the cap tube and needless to say has a three in one filling system. The RCC. It comes in a black cardboard box. A fancy ink dropper is included. The label. The pen. Notice the lack of an ink view window. The pen opened. The no 6 (35mm) nib

    Parker Frontier

    Parker Frontier Intro Now this is one of the oldest pens I have in my fountain pen collection. When you are at a initial stage of your fountain pen obsession, Parker is the brand you end up having 90% of times. The Packaging This pen comes in a regular cardboard box provided with most of the Parker pens. Nothing fancy here. But I have also seen a same product in a different tin box packaging. The Body The variant I happened to choose was the chrome one. I like the body of this pen. There is noothing going much with it. Simple yet works best. Clip & Pocket Looks When you c
  3. It's been awhile since I've written a review, my last one being 3 years ago. Of late, I've been making it a habit to rotate my pens, to the tune of every 2-4 weeks. One of the Montblanc Writer's Edition receiving less love than their peers is certainly the Kafka. Hence my choice today Price: I bought this at the London WES in 2013 from a dealer for 450 GBP/560 Euros, being told it was 'mint' but anyone who's bought a pen or two could tell that wasn't true, from the number of micro scratches found on the pens which you would get with use. But the condition was good, the nib acceptable to w
  4. I have recently started using fountain pens again after 30 plus years. I notice that when I fill a pen with a cartridge converter I seem to get an air bubble in the converter. I would like to know if this is normal and if not, how to remedy. I've tried filling really slowly, filling and then releasing back out and refilling while the pen is in the ink and I still get the little air pocket. Any advice is most appreciated.
  5. I have a bunch of vintage-ish pens that aren't really worth the few dollars it would take to sac them, has anyone had luck adapting sac-less sac fillers to fit a c/c? Worst case I would consider gluing the converter on the back, effectively turning it into a piston. I am really not a fan of sacs, but I still want to use these pens and they can't eyedropper convert because of the lever and pressure bar. Anyone have any ideas/successes?

    Pelikan P40 Pura

    Intro I am using this pen for more than a month now. I borrowed this black/ chrome variant of the fountain pen from a friend of mine and will return after I complete this review. The Packaging This pen comes in an attractive box with a cardboard sleeve. The box also includes a fake leather pouch which is kind of good if you want to carry a pen or two. The Nib As all Pelikan pens, this pen is also a pleasant writer. I like metal pens, heavier the better. As you can see in the images, this is a all metal pen. Pleasant to hold and has a medium folded nib. Finial & pocket looks T
  7. Hello, For a pen that uses international cartridges/converters, would anyone know how to effect a larger ink capacity than the standard international cartridge converter which holds 0.7 ml. For example, syringe filling a full length cartridge will achieve 1.4 ml approx or eye dropper filling the pen even more; but these use syringes and eye droppers which are inconvenient. Are there alternatives like squeeze fillers ? I'd imagine a sac that runs the full length of the pen would equal a full length cartridge. Thanks, Fabian
  8. The Diplomat Excellence A is a pen that’s been on my radar for the past year or so – a beautiful looking pen, with a reputation for being a smooth writer… but it was just a bit too far above my budget. Enter Kevin from the JustWrite Pen Company, who’s provided me with pens for review in the past (including the Diplomat Esteem – see https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/271382-the-diplomat-esteem-conservative-german-styling-great-writing-experience/). In June 2015, Kevin was offering a 25% discount on all products listed on his website – on top of the (comparatively) competitive pric
  9. I always grumble a little bit when I have to use a pen that uses cartridge converters to handle bottled ink. The problem is that the capacity of these converters is so small. They are a pathetic bit of technology, when one is used to piston-filler pens. I wish someone -- perhaps Nathan Tardif at Noodlers -- would make refillable, sealable cartridges for pens that take standard, international-cartridges. (Uh... and also for Platinum, Parker and Pilot format cartridges.) What I'd want is something like Tardif's "308" refillable cartridge that Noodler's provides for its Ahab and Neponset pens, b
  10. Hello everyone, I have a MB145, and there's ink that got behind the rubber seal of cartridge converter, also some stuck between the rubber seal Does anyone know how to deal with this situation? Thanks
  11. I'm sorry if this is old hat for most, but I just spent the past day looking for some more concrete information on this and came up short. So, I'm posting this in the hope that it'll help others who search online for the same info. I love the Pentel Pocket Brush, but sadly they don't sell them in local shops in my area. Which means they don't sell the cartridges, either. When the brush hairs start to get iffy, I can wait the 2-3 days to get another one in the mail, but I don't want to wait around every time I run out of ink. ...Which is often, because of course brush pens just spit ink o
  12. I haven't bought or used a cartridge converter pen very much for about six years now. The last one that I used regularly was a Duofold Centennial. Even back then, I did note that on the rare occasion that I used a cartridge in place of the converter, the ink flow seemed smoother and generally produced a better writing experience. These days, I wouldn't consider buying a pen if it was offered only as a cartridge converter, and piston fillers obviously don't suffer this problem. Any one else have any thing to say on this topic?
  13. Hello Everyone, So the reason I have made it here is that I am seeking information. My brother had a Yafa Scenario Gift Set that he was not using. I traded some donuts for the fountain pen of the set and have been loving it ever since. I discovered the proper cartridges are the standard long size. But I am looking for a cartridge converter of some kind in a effort to wean off of cartridges. Anyone have any info? http://bit.ly/1u6fLRx - Yafa Link I can snap pics if needed.
