  1. Inspired by a Goulet blog and instructional video, I've discovered a new way to clean Waterman fountain pens which use converters or cartridges. I've always flushed the pen by filling and rinsing, filling and rinsing, etc., with a converter. The new way is to remove the converter or cartridge, then use running water to flush out the nib and feed, and fill and rinse the converter by itself. I've got a bulb syringe on order. However, I've immediately run into a problem. After doing this flushing, if I insert an ink cartridge and start writing, the writing is very faint. It takes a lot of
  2. Today, I ran across a couple of old Sheaffer ink cartridges. I don't have a Sheaffer pen and almost threw them away. I happened to be replacing the short International Cartridge in my Kaweco Sport and noticed that the hole that goes on the pen nipple looked to be about the same size. I couldn't resist and dug out a Jinhao 599 and the Sheaffer cartridge seemed to fit, but I didn't get any ink flow. After I poked the little ball out manually and the Sheaffer cartridge fit into the 599. I wrote about half a page just fine with the Sheaffer cartridge in the 599. I consider this very experimental

  4. Hi! I've recently purchased my first-one-ever fountain pen - Platinum PTL-5000A (Platinum Standard) with a fine nib. I've since come across an opinion, that is it not so good as a pen for a beginner, but it was listed amongst Goulet top next level pens, and I was able to get the pen for a little more than price of a Lamy Al-Star in retail around me, so I guess it shouldn't be that bad of a deal. Now for the question part. I ended up with a bunch of (3, to be exact) Platinum converters for my pen. For low long you can usually use one? Should I keep them all, or use 1 and try to trade or s
  5. Hello everybody, A little more than a year ago, when I first started using fountain pens seriously, I was not really aware of the pleasure of using bottled ink. So I ended up buying tons of cartridges. Now, however, I almost exclusively use bottled ink, and those cartridges that I bought initially just sit in a box. I was wondering if I can empty them with a syringe and collect the ink in separate ink bottles? Thank you very much!
  6. Would anybody please help me by telling me which type of ink cartridge this is. It is 46mm in length if that helps, Thank you.
  7. Hi! Perhaps I'm blaspheming by asking about ballpoint pens here (and maybe this thread should be in the ink forum?), but this is not about any ordinary Bic ballpoint. Anyway, I'm sorry for asking about ballpoint pens. Be assured that I am a true believer in the superiority of fountain pens. You see, for the last three years I've been in possession of a rather odd little brass note book case with an attached pen, presumably ballpoint. This case was a gift, bought at an antique store, and the attached pen came without an ink cartridge. I've been trying to find a place to buy new ink cartri
