Quink Mini Cartridge - Alternatives?


Recommended Posts



My regular "take-with" pen is a Parker Esprit Mini. It takes Quink Mini cartridges, which are difficult to obtain where I currently live.


Are there any alternatives I could use? I have tried standard international cartridges, but they are not quite right - they don't stay seated in the barrel.


Any ideas gratefully received.

Lamy and Aurora cartridges are said to work on Parkers, but neither brand makes mini versions.


Other than refilling your cartridges, I can only recommend having someone design and 3d print an adapter from Parker to international standard (something like that), or finding a way to hack a Parker converter into the Esprit.


Last alternative is trying to find a (now discontinued) Rotring Esprit. Same pen, but takes standard cartridges.

Thanks. I have some Lamy cartridges and Parker converters - will see if they fit.


I have a Rotring Esprit as well, which I prefer because of the international cartridge compatibility. But it needs some TLC on its nib, so I can't use it at the moment. They're both enjoyable pens when they're working; I'm on to my last Quink Mini cartridge though!
