Fountain Pens Which Take Long Universal Cartridges

Recommended Posts

Apologies if there's a list already around....Im looking for which fountain pens take the long universal cartridges, rather than just the short ones.

 

Any suggestions very welcome.

Waterman Phileas / Kultur - I'm using one right now...

Thank you....is that the long universal cartridge, or the Waterman one?

The Waterman cartridge is a long universal cartridge. Almost all pens that will hold two short international cartridges or also use a converter will also take one long one. The main exceptions are the pens that use carriers. Often the carrier will have a ridge or stop between the cartridges that also prevents a single long one or converter from fitting. My Montblanc 147 is an example of such a carrier.

 

In fact I am using a Waterman cartridge today in my Yard-o-Led "Smythson" fountain pen.

Italix Parson's Essential, Waterman Laureat (and presumably many other Waterman c/c pens), and Montblanc Noblesse, from my own experience. As jar has said, unless the barrel is unusually short or has some obstruction in it, as the 147 does, any pen of normal size that takes a short international cartridge or holds two of them will take a long international cartridge.

Faber-Castell Ambition, Graf Von Faber-Castell Intuition, Franklin-Christoph Model 66 and TWSBI Micarta take the long cartridges.

This is very interesting.

Anyone like Ray Bradbury? Please read "The Laurel and Hardy Love Affair" if you have about 12 minutes.

 

You will not forget this wonderful gem that is largely obscure and sadly, forgotten. http://bit.ly/1DZtL4g

The Wancher 807 will not take a long international cartridge. It can take a short, or a slim slide converter.

 

The Kaigelu 316 will take a long international cartridge.
