Faber-Castell Fountain Pen converter
1) in which do you realy see this? Far when I can tell they merely lack a 'direct' way of ordering the converter by themselves web site (however down the road they did actually have added it relating to Michelle)
Dear Mr. Blessing:
I am after with that make sure all BASIC water feature pens within our stock do accept the look Converter. But I am however awaiting verification from Germany that is still the outcome in other places and you will be certain to follow-up with you when i've received these details.
Please inform me easily can assist any further as I will surely do my better to help.

2) The 'nipple' and/or section behind the section takes standard worldwide. But the FUNDAMENTAL's barrel design is a bit on the slim side. We had/have two, a Carbon Fiber and a Leather one. The state one (role # 148785) will fit in both, however in my carbon fibre it absolutely was some snug regarding the wall of barrel nonetheless it did fit, and did not pull-out when getting rid of the barrel, on the leather-based one, it simply slips inside, right-up into wall surface of this barrel.
We used my faber-castell converter in both my Carbon Fiber and Leather one.
no. 1 is a "Standard Overseas" for $5 from GouletPens, it will not fit into the Carbon Fiber or Leather Barrel, the silverish ring on straight back of the converter is just too dense for this. Exact same for number 2 (Jinhao one), but # 3 (Monteverde Mini) and # 4 (from a Yiren pen) will fit fine because it's slim sufficient. And obviously number 5 could be the official converter.
3) It is not true, Michelle verifies it. I think the reason some people believe simply because places like CultPens are saying it because "Design changes", but I think it's because on some variations from it, it is a tad snug and people pulling the barrel off a touch too hastily may also grab the converter.
the reason why I'D a carbon-fiber is because the section/grip cracked down the middle, and according to one store there was clearly one group with a poor grip/section (which might have-been exacerbated because of the barrel placing a lot of outward stress about it. Started using it changed with a leather variation, that your FC converter meets into without grabbing the side of the barrel, such smoother (and can fit # 2 above 'snugly' but adequate in order that I would personallynot need to exposure it).
If you do not would like to get faber-castell's official version, the Monteverde Mini Converter is $2.50 at GouletPens (uncertain just what it really is on Amazon) certainly will work, on trade-off of reduced ability.
PS: A Large waterman cartridge will fit, if you would like refill a sizable cartridge.
PS: i might advise maybe not purchasing straight from Faber-Castell, find good merchant for it when you have dilemmas. Appointments in Ohio was very helpful in solving my issue with the carbon-fiber one, however they don't possess an on-line store, and their on line existence at the best is Twitter, but if you wanted to e-mail or call them, they may be in a position to supply a run upon what exactly is available. It is simply been my own knowledge that getting things resolved right from the producer hasn't been appropriate. And their website is not too informative on specs of each regarding the pens, where as a retailer can better answer your concerns quicker.
