They are available in the short international cartridge size so they suit many pens but not the ones I’m currently using the most (Lamy, Pilot, Platinum and Sailor). And so I went through my collection of pens to find which pens they would suit.
- Kaweco pens,
- Super 5 pens and
- Faber Castell Loom.
1. The last two are a little heavy for me to use for sketching.
2. Another pen I own which suits these cartridges is the Rotring Art Pen
And then guess what… I bought a few new lightweight entry-level pens that use this size cartridge – from LarryPost – so that I could test them for you all.
- Faber-Castell 2011 Grip
- Pelikan Twist
- Monteverde Monza
I will start using these pens this week and will do a full review in October – yes, inktober month!
I don’t intend to change from using bottled ink and using a converter and/or refilling cartridges (no need for using the extra plastic), but having De Atramentis Ink in cartridges is a great option for emergencies, for flying or for people who want to start using fountain pen and are initially worried about using bottled ink.
But in the meantime, is anyone using another pen for sketching which would suit these cartridges?
