Epic fail: Using a Faber-Castell Converter in a Super5 Fountain Pen

I’m currently using my Super5 with the 0.7 nib a lot, but I made one mistake: I filled a Faber-Castell converter with the Aurora Blue-Black ink without checking first whether it fits. Well, the converter is too long to fit, but luckily you can remove the end caps of the new Super5 fountain pens [1]The purpose of this: So that you can create different colour combinations, e.g. a white pen with a red end cap, etc. ..so I have been using the Super5 without the end cap for the last weeks.

The new Super5 without the end cap

Somehow the Super5’s 0.7 nib makes me write quite differently: the writing is a bit bigger with letters being more condensed, not as tall. Well, it makes for an interesting change.

I can’t complain about the paper I’m using either. It’s from one of Rad and Hungry’s old subscription boxes, the Swedish one from maybe five years ago. Excellent paper!

  1. I wouldn’t say it is an epic fail, since there is no ink spillage or the sort. The mini Kaweco converter does fit Super5, as I was testing it earlier. No ink has escaped so far!
