- End of Life
Think of a reusable ink cartridge converter as your fountain pen's perfect life partner. Pop one of these into your pen, and they can stick together for life! For our colorful Kaweco Sport fountain pens, pair with a syringe-style converter for a perfect fit. Our petit metal Kaweco Liliput fountain pen will work best with the squeeze converter.
Check out our blog post for full instructions on how to refill your fountain pen using our refillable ink cartridges!
Note: The refillable ink cartridge converter arrives empty and does not include ink. You can fill and refill the cartridge converter with our bottled fountain pen inks.
Use & Care
Disassemble your fountain pen, and remove existing cartridge, if necessary. Push converter into the nib portion of the pen. To fill with ink, careful squeeze the converter to empty the cartridge of air. (Be extra careful if there's leftover ink already in the cartridge!) Dip the nib portion of the pen into your ink bottle, being sure to fully submerge the nib. Gently squeeze the sac several times, until it fills with ink. Reassemble, and wipe excess ink off on a cloth.
