  1. 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
  2. I must start this review confessing that I’m not a FP collector (even though I have already six FP). And I also must confess that I don’t like flexible nibs. In fact, I’ve always looked for a FP just to write with. I don’t care about great variations. I don’t need a nib capable of great lines or good for an artistic handwriting (my handwriting is awful). I am only a writer, somebody who writes many hours with a FP. That’s why I’ve always searched one good fine or extrafine nib in a big FP for my hands, comfortable, of good quality and aesthetically pleasant to me. It is also important that th
  3. The persistence of an apparently empty fountain pen can be an amazing thing. This is not a new thought around here; it's been mentioned fairly frequently, and I've certainly run into enough examples on my own. The other day I unscrewed a Platinum 3776 to see how much ink was left in the converter. Nothing but stains. I turned it nib up to see if any ink would run back into the converter; nothing. And yet I still got another four pages out of it, in a journal only slightly smaller than an A5 size, before it skipped and sputtered to a halt. No mystery, of course. Like a sponge, a fountai
  4. I have two Sailor pens, Sailor Sapporo and Sailor 1911 Large NT nib. They are both in my top 10 pens but I use them less and less because of the limited ink capacity. I write a lot and just don't feel the confidence in these pens that will last me a day of writing. I think converter holds 0.6 ml of ink and I have difficulty filling them fully so its more like 0.5ml. Looks like pens are designed for Japanese writing system in which you use less ink to write down the same message (what you will need four pages of writing in English will only take three pages in Japanese.) I was thinking of
  5. Hi, I received my MB Edgar Allan Poe fountain pen from GoPens today. It is one of the most beautiful pens I've ever seen. A BLUE Montblanc! I'm in heaven. When I unscrewed the piston, however, I noticed that it didn't unscrew very far. I've inked the pen and am writing with it quite happily. But, I am wondering about the ink capacity of the pen. It just didn't seem like it sucked up much ink with so few turns of the piston. I've looked on the MB website and Googled, but I can't find the specs for this pen. I am afraid to twist the piston past what seems to be the stopping point, though
