I opened my newly bought bottle of Platinum Carbon Ink and this cylindrical thing was found floating inside.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

I think the old style (round) Sailor bottles may have had similar inserts. And possibly other ink brands as well (but Sailor comes to mind because I have a bottle of original formula Sky High -- which is not quite the same to my eye as Souten was).

Indeed. Older Sailor (for the current cube bottles it is sold separately), current Kobe Nagasawa, current Pilot 60/70ml, 70ml TWSBI, discontinued Parker Penman, some Chinese inks etc. etc.

AFAIK R&K sells these inserts separately. I guess they are useful to gather the last drops so you can still fill your FP (but I have never finished a bottle since I started out in 2012 so I don't know how good they are)

The only bottles I've finished have been smaller capacity ones (a bottle of De Atramentis, which is only 35 ml) and I think the first bottle of Waterman Mysterious Blue. Well, and the 4-1/2 bottle of Noodler's Kung Te Cheng I knocked off the bathroom counter after only one fill, of course -- but that wasn't "finishing" so much as "breaking".... :blush:
I have one of the Noodler's versions of the R&K inserts, but have never used it (although it might be one of the stand-up tulip style ones that you pour the ink into -- I forget now which I bought).

Ah, yes, indeed! I didn't buy them but have one in my cleaning solution bottle.

These can help fill a pen when a bottle is running low on ink but in my experience the inserts are just a nuisance. Many of my pens require completely submerging the nib, which is very difficult with the Sailor inserts and larger nibs so I end up throwing the insert away.

I find it annoying and remove it with tweezers.
