A small, lightweight portable ink filler that can be used with most fountain pens.
Pinedier are a presitigous company and have been making luxurious leather goods, paper and writing instruments since 1774. They've recently teamed up with Dante Del Vecchio, who used to work with Visconti, and have created a stunning, yet practical, range of new pens and accessories.
The Pen Filler is a transportable pen filler that can be used with most fountain pens that measure between 9.5mm and 13mm in diameter (there's a pen gauge on the side of the box to try before you buy!) It can hold up to 10ml of ink that will, roughly, fill a typical converter about 12 times. It also comes with a pipette so it can be filled with the ink of your choice with very little mess!
To use the pen filler, put out the stopper and unscrew the black collar to widen the hole for your pen to go in. Once to pen is in, tighten to collar to ensure a secure hold. Turn the filler upside down, and fill your pen! Make sure the converter or piston is empty before using and ensure that the plunger is down before putting the pen into the filler to avoid unnecessary pressure. We also recommend trying with water before using with ink!
It's a great peice of affordable, portable kit. It weighs next to nothing and is so much smaller than a bottle of ink. We've also discovered that you can mix inks to create new colours (test this before you do it in the filler) and that you can fill your pen from the very last 1ml of ink!
