Chrissy posted a topic in Paper & Pen Paraphernalia Reviews and ArticlesKaweco have just brought out a brand new mini piston type converter for their Sport pens. This nifty little converter fits into all of the Kaweco Sport range of pens, (not the Liliput!) allowing you to use bottled ink as well as cartridges in your Kaweco Sport pens. Manufacture: The casing is hard, clear plastic with Kaweco printed in white along the outside. The internal push/pull rod is hard black plastic, while the end of the casing and the end of the piston rod are chrome metal. The chrome metal end of the black rod has an easy to grip machined edge. Measurements: It measures 33mm long when closed, and 53mm when open. Capacity: It holds .5ml of ink when full. Details: I fitted one of these into my red and black AC Sport. It fitted so securely onto the feed that when I tried to turn it slightly to show the Kaweco branding while I took the photograph of it fitted in the pen, it unscrewed the nib unit. So I can confirm it fits into my AC Sport really tightly. It took me a couple of draws to properly fill the converter with ink from the bottle, but that seems to be common with these tiny converters. I just love it! The fact that I can now use bottled ink in my Kaweco Sport pens without having to use the squeezy converter, or refill cartridges with a syringe is great! Cost and availability So far I have only spotted them in stock on the Appelboom.com web site at a cost of €5.50 inclusive of EU tax. I'm sure other web-sites will get them in stock soon. I'm over the moon with this. Thank you Kaweco for sending me this product to review.
