Cult Pens asked for wacky features if I get to design my own pen. I love colours and I change inks in my fountain pens so often that I only fill my converter to a quarter full. I also happen to hate flushing pens. So here’s my wacky fountain pen design:
- Tiny converter
- Nib unit can be pulled out with converter all in one piece
- Pulled-out unit can be stored in tube which seals off the nib and prevent the ink from drying out
- Nib unit with converter can be purchased separately, ie, buy one pen and numerous nib/converter units so I can swap whatever ink colour I want into the pen, without having to flush the pen every time I change the ink.
- One last feature for good measure: since the converter is short, the barrel should be long enough to fit 2 converters in. So why waste room? We might as well put another nib/converter unit on the other end of the pen. One pen, 2 nibs, 2 colours.
