From the album: Odds and endsThe opening on a Diplomat ‘international standard’ converter is 2.4mm across, and other ‘non-conformant’ types of converters tend to have wider openings than that. Even a completely dry and still relatively stiff strip of paper towel can be rolled up to be inserted through the opening; and, once its slightly moist and softer, it can easily deform and bunch up to touch (and therefore dry) the walls of the converter as the strip is rotated. I keep a stack of these strips handy for cleaning.

So, I just ordered a Platinum Plaisir - I was very attracted the coloured nibs and plumped for a green one. I'm easily pleased. I also ordered one of these - an adaptor that will allow me to use international standard cartridges. I have two questions and was wondering if anyone could answer them for me: 1: Has anyone used this adapter and, if so, is it any good? 2: Will it allow me to use an international standard converter? Even if it's poop, I'm not bothered - there seems to be a decent range of Platinum cartridges on the Cult Pens site.
Hello FPN Users, I have recently purchased a 2010 model hemisphere and it's on it's way in the post. I was wondering if I am able to fit an international standard converter, namely the monteverde mini converter. Some say they only take waterman converters, others say that it will fit. Can someone please answer this for me. Thanks ~Jake
