Namiki Vanishing Point (Older Version)

Rate Topic 0

Recommended Posts

Hello, I own a older Namiki Vanishing Point that I have had for many years and use it rarely because it seems to hold almost no ink and starts streaking after a few lines.

I like its portability, but is too frustrating to use.

Is there something I can do to remedy this problem?
Can I change from the squeeze converter to a screw converter?
Is there some way to get it to draw in more ink?

Photos below.

Thank you,

Have you tried the Pilot Converter that comes with the current VPs?


Other than that, you could always fill the aerometric converter that you have with an ink syringe.

CAG Thank you. I will try that. Any suggestion how to avoid it drying up and streaking when their is still ink in the cartridge?

Thank you.

Does the "trap door" shut tightly? With older VP's, ink can build up and prevent a tight seal. You may need to flush the barrel with water and dry thourghly with warm air. That is one thought.
