I purchased this converter...
, December 31, 2011
I purchased this converter for my Pilot Decimo. The CON-50 converter fits
great, and it doesn't leak or anything, but I'm having trouble getting the
converter to fill up with ink all the way. I've been dipping the pen nib into
the ink and using the converter to pull up the ink thru the nib, but despite
pulling the plunger back and then forward to try to get the last little bit of
air out, there's a space in the clear section of the converter that I can't
manage to fill with ink. So, I'm giving this a halfway decent review because
the space in the converter means that I have to refill it more frequently.
Also, I have a Pilot Cavalier fountain pen, and this converter DOES NOT FIT WITH
THE PEN BODY SHUT, as mentioned by a previous reviewer. It would be ideal if
this were just a little bit less wide, because I have a love-hate relationship
with the CON-20 (with the balloon/sack). To be clear, this converter fits in
the nib part, but you can't close the pen body with this converter.
