Hello! Does anyone know of pen bodies that will hold the Artfineliner refill (other than the Artfineliner pen, that is)? The barrel is too wide for it to fit in just about any pen. I frankensteined a Noodler's Ahab with the business end of a Sharpie, and it totally worked. Just wondering if there are other options K
Hello! I'm Kevin, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of a pen body that will fit a Montblanc Artfineliner refill. I frankensteined a Noodler's Ahab with the business end of a Sharpie, and it totally worked. Just wondering if there's any other way. Kevin

I'm trying to accumulate some nicer (but not expensive) bodies to hold my Pilot G-2 refills. Unfortunately, the first one came today and it doesn't quite fit, so I'm trying to determine if it can be hacked or if I need to send it back. I thought I'd ask for insight from those more experienced than I. The pen is an OHTO Words. It takes a refill that's almost identical to the G-2 refill, but the "almost" is causing an issue. There's something about the tip that isn't quite fitting through the hole, and I don't know if maybe I can drill it out? When I put the original refill (that the pen came with) in, I have to kind of push once it gets almost in, to get it to go all the way in and "seat." It's a little hard to explain; it feels a bit like when something hydraulic moves. So I'm not sure if there's some intentional mechanism in there that I'll mess up if I try to drill it out. Another potential approach would be to hack the refill, but I don't know if that's doable. You can see in this picture that the original refill has kind of a "collar" where the tip is attached to the "cartridge" area. The G-2 has that, but it also has a second "tier" of collar. I can't tell for sure if the diameter of the tip is the problem or if that extra collar is the problem, or both. Here you can see the two refills side-by-side. Also, you can see where the original refill inserts to without resistance as compared to when it's all the way in. Any suggestions? Anyone done this before?
