Which Ink Cartridges Can Be Used With Which Fountain Pens?
International Or Proprietary?
While the bottled fountain pen inks we offer can be used in any fountain pen having a converter, piston-fill, or other reservoir system (that includes every pen we sell new), cartridge inks fall into two broad categories--international and proprietary.
The ink cartridges from Aurora, Platinum, Pilot-Namiki, and Sailor are proprietary, usable only in their respective pen brands--note that Platinum makes the ink cartridges used in Nakaya pens. In turn, pens from these manufacturers can only utilize their own proprietary ink cartridges--with the exception of Nakaya/Platinum, which offers an adapter (available from us at a nominal cost) allowing their pens to use international cartridges in addition to the Platinum brand. Parker pens also use the same size nibs and converters as Aurora.
