This is a great fountain pen converter that will fit any fountain pen that you have that takes the standard international cartridge, provided that the barrel is long enough to hold it, which should be the vast majority of fountain pens. It will not fit a Recife Baby Press, for example, because that is a tiny pen.

The fit and finish of this cartridge is excellent and it hold plenty of ink. I use it in a Pelikan Pelikano. There are cheaper converters that work just as well, but this one really looks good with the shiny metal bits. Even the cheaper converters are only going to cost a dollar less at most, so go for the better looking one, in my opinion. I doubt these are actually made by Pelikan, but it doesn't matter; they do the job and the price is more than reasonable.

Use this to fill your cartridge pen with bottle ink and walk away a winner.

By the way, this converter is NOT made of GLASS, as one reviewer said. The plastic is very clear, for sure, but you can still dig your fingernail into it, if you want to, just to make sure that it's not glass. I highly doubt that even one of these was made out of glass and somehow he/she got one. It just doesn't make sense. Rest assured that you are not buying a fragile extremely thin-walled glass tubed item but one that will last for years to come that appears to be made of something more reliable like clear vinyl, and you don't have to worry about dropping your pen and having the converter shatter into a million shards inside your expensive pen.

*shakes head*

Glass? Who would do that?

Like a few others here, I am using this with a Pellikan Pelikano. It is a great converter of excellent quality. It allows me to use all my favorite bottled inks! I'm very pleased with this item.

This does exactly as promised. I put it into my Pelikano that I picked up at a flea market in Zurich, and it fit solid. I had another brand of converter in this pen before and it rattled every time the pen moved.
