    Very nice review. I have converted my Kaweco Sport to an eyedropper. I was going to change ink when I noticed that there is ink getting between the outer clear barrel and the black inner piece in the section. Is there a way to clean this out? How if possible can I prevent this? I can’t seem to remove this piece to clean. It probably shouldn’t bother me but it does. Thanks!

      Unfortunately, there isn’t a way (that I know of) to clean this! This has happened on my own clear Sport as well, and I assume the other sports, but you just can’t see it. I’m sorry that it’s just bad news here!

    Most of the instructions I’ve seen for converting a Platinum Preppy to eyedropper involve an o-ring in addition to the silicone grease, do you think that is necessary or is greasing the threads typically enough?

      I’ve had several eyedroppered Preppies without an o-ring, including a few in the shop, without a problem. I think the o-ring also serves to prevent over-tightening, which can crack the plastic leading to leaking or worse.
