Interesting Ink Cartridge Swap

Recommended Posts

Today, I ran across a couple of old Sheaffer ink cartridges. I don't have a Sheaffer pen and almost threw them away. I happened to be replacing the short International Cartridge in my Kaweco Sport and noticed that the hole that goes on the pen nipple looked to be about the same size. I couldn't resist and dug out a Jinhao 599 and the Sheaffer cartridge seemed to fit, but I didn't get any ink flow. After I poked the little ball out manually and the Sheaffer cartridge fit into the 599. I wrote about half a page just fine with the Sheaffer cartridge in the 599.

 

I consider this very experimental until I go a few days without any leaks. I don't plan on buying any more Sheaffer ink cartridges, but it is nice to be able to use up the ones on hand instead of trashing them.

I do the reverse. I've got an old Sheaffer Targa and I regularly put standard international cartridges in it. Works fine. It's a very wet pen that turns Visconti Blue cartrdiges into the nicest blue you've ever seen.

If you don't want to waste the ink cartridges you could buy a Sheaffer pen that takes the cartridges...

Sooner or later you will damage the your pen´s connector if you do not use the proprietary sheaffer cartridge... :unsure: ;)
