Product Description

Product Description

Since its foundation in 1883 by Lewis Edson Waterman and the invention of the first refillable fountain pen, the WATERMAN brand has constantly sought to innovate. With a long history rich in creativity, it has become a true reference in the world of writing. At the beginning of this new century, WATERMAN is asserting its personality more than ever through its exceptional know-how and spirit of innovation. Each pen is unique, exclusive and continues to reflect the character and temperament of its owner. Using a variety of materials and colours, designs and styles, WATERMAN remains more than ever the epitome of individual French elegance.

By Peter Biddlecombe TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
This converter replaces a cartridge in a Watermans fountain pen, and allows you to fill the pen from an ink bottle. The volume held by the converter appears to be just over half that of a long cartridge. It fills completely with the usual twisting method to move the internal plunger.

The maths involved depends on the current prices of ink bottles and cartridges, but at present a 2 oz bottle of Watermans ink costs just under twice the cost of a pack of 8 long cartridges. The cartridge pack doesn't state a volume but I would estimate that a bottle of ink is equivalent to about 20 cartridges - 2.5 packs. (If you can see "2 oz" on the product picture for the cartridges, that's because the picture is actually for the ink bottle's box.)

So the converter will pay for itself after about 3 ink bottles.

Another minor benefit is that you can use ink from other pen manufacturers if the price or colour suits you better. Doubtless they will all tell you that their ink is specially designed for their pens, but a fountain pen is a fountain pen and I doubt very much that anyone could tell the difference between Watermans black ink and black Quink (Parker) or Skrip (Sheaffer).

The downside: filling with ink involves a little bit of waste and mess - my Watermans Hemisphere pen had one small drop of ink on the barrel that needed wiping off after filling.

2.0 out of 5 stars There is no alternative 14 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
I've had a Waterman pen for over 15 years now and I've just ordered what will be my third converter. I use the pen every day, so you can work out how long they last. The problem with the two previous ones is that eventually the seal where it pushes into the nib unit splits. When it does ink will leak back into the pen casing, through the screw joint and out all over your hands.

Alas there isn't any other choice, except for using cartridges. I used to find I was forever buying them with my previous pen, so I prefer ink bottles. So, I love my Waterman pen, the quality is excellent and it writes really well. The quality of the converter is great too, - except for the pathetic little plastic seal which will go. So, when you see tell tail little ink droplets on the converter when you fill it, take it out and check the seal carefully. If there's even the hint of a little split stop using it and get a new one.

Otherwise you may end up in an important meeting suddenly looking like you're back in primary school after a handwriting lesson.

Works well. I can now fill the pen from an ink pot, as opposed to having it out of commission for weeks when I forget to buy the not inexpensive and be spoke cartridges that I used to use

5.0 out of 5 stars I hate being stuck with cartridges.......... 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase
in one colour so this is why I bought this Convertor.

I have Waterman Inks in Green and Purple and am just about to remove the cartridge that came with the fountain pen and fill the Convertor with Purple Ink.

It's easy to just twist the top of the Convertor and then draw the ink up.

Voila, job done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ink filler Ever 27 Dec 2010
By A.Ahmed
Verified Purchase
Was a bit dubious about the "luxury" part of this converter - after all what more could a luxury one do. Well!! The ink filling process is so much less fiddly and much more smooth. Get less ink leakage and overall works great.

This is a good little gadget that allows people to use bottled ink instead of cartridges and it works a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin. 6 Feb 2013

Just that it holds ink, releases it onto the paper, and doesn't fall out of the pen. What more could you ask for?
