Mini Review Of The Mini Kaweco Converter

Hi all!

Just got this cute little converter in the mail, and I thought it could be interesting to a lot of folks looking for converters for their smaller pens. This model does fit the liliput, so I think quite a few smaller pens will fit it. It is a push and pull (no twisting), and feels very well made.

The opening was a little too small; I had to stick a toothpick in there and wiggle it a little bit for it to fit. But after the first time you plug it onto a pen for the first time, it's a nice fit.

 

I carefully measured the ink capacity and it's about .58mL. So yep, not a whole lot... You probably don't want to put this on a double broad Visconti...

And that .58mL measurement was from filling with a micro pipet directly, so filling directly from bottle you might lose another .1 mL due to the air... So read something like .5ml....

They also have a squeeze converter I've tried on a couple of Sport pens. It works well but in terms of capacity I'd rather fill a cartridge with a syringe, which I detest.

I've not tried mine out yet but am using cartridges in the Sports at present.

Why do you detest it? I do it all the time and quite enjoy it. A very neat and efficient process, somehow. The environmental effect is probably neglible at best - making the glass for one's ink bottle probably pollutes the environment more than an equivalent amount of cartridges...

There are a few practical things I dislike, for example having to use a mediator (syringe - as opposed to the directness of e.g. a piston filler) and that most cartridge types don't seem to connect securely enough to the pen, which after some fills results into a loose fit.

Shame, I have a few pens this would be perfect for if it weren't labeled.

1) Atelier Simoni ID Demonstrator Natural Rhodium (As if it existed.)

2) Moresi 2nd Limited Edition Delta Demonstrator

3) y.y. Pen Club #4 and #10

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
