I purchased this for use with my Pilot Plumix fountain pen, but I believe it is compatible with a wide range of other Pilot products as well. It's shaped like and installed in place of a regular Pilot cartridge. Use is pretty intuitive; press and hold the button on the side, submerge the entire nib in ink, then release to draw ink up into the converter. (You might need to repeat a couple of times to make sure most of the ink is going into the converter and not the feed.) I fill directly from the ink bottle and it works perfectly, no spills or splatter! I also think it holds a bit more ink than the CON-50, although unfortunately the CON-20 is not clear so you can't see how much is left. A good, cheap choice for those who want to broaden their ink and color options.

Works well with the Pilot Cavalier sold here. The converter already contains an inner sac so all you gotta do is attach is and you are good to go. Don't need anything else except an Inkwell to fill your fountain pen from.

I use this converter with the Pilot Plumix. It works great, construction is pretty good for the price.

It works, but its lack of transparency means that it's difficult to know when you've drawn up any ink at all, never mind enough to last for an entire letter. Pilot SAYS that you can tell by the feel of the squeeze mechanism, but that's just not true. It doesn't even hold all that much, when you do get it full. For a desk pen, these may not be flaws of design, but they're fatal flaws for a student like me who doesn't have all day to monkey around with refilling a fountain pen, and needs to be assured of having enough ink to get through a day without lugging ink bottles with me,

Unless this will be a desk pen and you have all the time in the world to refill, if necessary, the Con-50 or 70 is the better choice for peace of mind in knowing exactly how much ink you're getting, every time.

It's a very good converter and functions very well according to it's specifications, however, it's very hard to see just how much ink it has actually suctioned, or even to be able to check how much ink is left. You just have to play it by ear.

It fits very well into my Cavalier, snug fit and has not leaked.

I don't know how they could say this is compatible with the Pilot Penmanship, it's too lose at the section, it can't even fit! I purchase this for the price $3.3 and was so disappointed, cause I love the Penmanship too much, not just for the price but also for the quality, the extra fine line is so good for me that I couldn't find anywhere! I've planned to buy the cartridge, but I love the Turquoise ink and they didn't appear as cartridge so I have to buy those converter. I hope the CON-50 would be better but I think it's not worth to buy the converter the same price as the pen!

This leaked with both my Penmanship and my Plumix from Day 1. I've read that they are inconsistent in quality and that leaking is often a problem. Very frustrating.

I really don't want to use cartridges, so I'm ordering a CON-50. But I would have preferred not to waste money on the CON-20.

Not as easy to use as Lamy's converter.
