Ink Converter for Pilot E95S

Recommended Posts

My E95S converter broke and I was advised to replace it with a Pilot Con-40.  I don't know if this isn't the right converter to use or if I have a defective part - or???  The pen is only drawing up about 1/8-inch of ink.  Also, though the pen usually flows nicely, is scratching the paper - not enough ink flow.  The E95S is the shorter barrel and I'm wondering if the proper replacement isn't the CON-20 (discontinued) or the Con-B, with a squeeze bulb like the original?  Any thoughts on this?

It is, according to https://www.pilot.co.jp/products/pen/fountain/fountain/elite95s/.

See https://www.pilot.co.jp/support/fountain/40.html. You should not expect to fill the entire cavity of the CON-40 with ink using the part in the manner advised by the manufacturer, even though you'd probably hope/want to surpass the stated 0.4ml ink capacity. You can either just accept the limit, or syringe fill it before connecting it to the post that goes around the feed inside the gripping section.

The proper / recommended converter to use is the CON-40, although you could use a CON-20 as an alternative for what you may consider a superior experience.

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.

Thanks for the response.  I think the item I have is defective.  I have been using this pens for years and it is a very smooth writing experience but now with not even a half page of writing the it is running out of ink and the nib is scratching the paper.  The video I watched showed a technique of a second fill, first pushing the air out of the chamber.  I'm thinking the of the possibility there is some issue with the plunger part that sucks up the ink - that it might not be a proper fit and is leaking air on the intake.

Con-50 is still available.  There is a CON-40 discussion here

Thanks.  I found the old one and I can still use it.  There a small thin piece of metal over the squeeze sack missing but it still takes in a good supply of ink.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
