  1. Good Tutorial.

    I usually just detach the converter from the section and dip nozzle of it into the ink bottle and get a full fill that way. And expel all the air by employing the procedure you mentioned, which is to point the nozzle up and let the ink settle to the bottom of the converter, and press the pressure bar to expel all the air out through the nozzle.

    That way I don’t get any ink on the nib and section.

      That’s a good way of filling as well, since you don’t have such a cumbersome front bit to maneuver into the ink. I don’t usually mind getting ink on the nib and section, since it saturates the feed for me to get the pen writing right away, but I guess I also don’t mind getting ink on my fingers!

  2. Thanks for this! It makes sense, really. I got one of these when it first came out, with the typical result of about three drops in it after a squeeze.

    At the end of the day, I still prefer filling cartridges but that’s just me. I have a tobacco tin full of empty ones.

    You should do one of these on turning the Sport into a bulb filler!

    • Thanks for reading, and the suggestion!

      Filling cartridges sometimes just seems easier, especially when you start to gather a bit of a collection. Actually, I’ve heard of people filling the converter with the syringe because it can be a little tricky to fill!

      I’ll work on the bulb filler 🙂

    Liz, saw you on Global news. Very cool. Do have any Kaweco medium AL Sport pens in stock?

    Thank you,

    Harry
