Monteverde Mini Converter In Kaweco Sport Classic


Recommended Posts

Howdy folks,


I'm sure you guys have run into this before. I filled up my monteverde mini converter with a syringe and stuck the converter into the section.. I then screwed the body onto the converter, and attempted to shake the whole pen. Rattling! Oh no. Because the converter tip is hard plastic, it will not reliably connect to the converter, and therefore will result in leaking if not properly seated in the barrel.


My solution: stuff a tiny ball of tissue down the barrel, and then re-screw. It works! Anyone else run into this and have another solution?

Interesting, but perhaps a bit scary. On a related note, the Andersons (no affiliation) had the brand new Kaweco converter at the Michigan Pen show a couple of weeks ago. It fits the Sport, which is nice, but it also fits the Liliput, which is fantastic.

I'll have to check that out... I'm not liking the monteverde miniconverter, because after some shaking, it'll get loose and start leaking. :/ Tempted to superglue it to a certain length and just fill it up with a syringe.

Was the converter new when you put it into the pen? The international cartridge size isn't perfect. Some have larger connectors than others. If you put a converter into a pen with a slightly larger connector, it will often fall off a pen that has a slightly smaller connector.



Stolen: Aurora Optima Demonstrator Red ends Medium nib. Serial number 1216 and Aurora 98 Cartridge/Converter Black bark finish (Archivi Storici) with gold cap. Reward if found. Please contact me if you have seen these pens.

Please send vial orders and other messages to fpninkvials funny-round-mark-thing gmail strange-mark-thing com. My shop is open once again if you need help with your pen.

Will someone with the name of "Jay" who emailed me through the email system provide me an email address? There was no email address provided, so I can't write back.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
