    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.

    This eyedropper and silicone grease is all new to me. Just wondering if anyone has tried using Teflon tape, the type plumbers use to wrap around threads, to prevent the ink from leaking out. It would take just one complete turn of the tape around the thread to make a leak proof seal.. Just wondering.
