J. Herbin's Cartridges

Recommended Posts

I just noticed J. Herbin sells ink cartridges with a few stipulations...Notably they aren't compatible with Lamy pens.. Is that true? It seems like a silly question, but I've not noticed the ink cartridge in my Safari to be anything "unusual" from the other cartridges.

 

This is the item of which I speak: http://www.jherbin.com/fountain_pen_inks.shtml

 

If that is true, what are the key differences in the way the Lamy cartridges work vs others... I'm fairly new to this, and while I find the idea of manually filling my pen fascinating, I'm unsure I want to risk the potential mess. :)

The J. Herein cartridge is standard international, a type of cartridge used by many different companies. Lamy and a few other companies use proprietary cartridge designs, in the case of Lamy the cartridge is much larger than the international and the opening where it attaches to the pen is incompatible with other brands pens. On the pen side the nipple that connects with the cartridge is to large to fit the in the opening of an international cartridge.

Aha, Thanks for that. I presume the J Herbin cartridges will fit my NImosine then. :)
