Vintage Parker Ink Converter
Aerometric (Squeeze Bar to Fill)
Genuine vintage Parker Converter
Fill your Parker pen with bottled ink
These vintage Parker ink converters were issued in the Parker 61 and Parker 65 fountain pens. They are also compatible with Parker 45's.
They are slightly wider than the more modern aerometric converters. During the 1970s, Parker started issuing a slimmer metal ink converter to fit with newer models of Parker 45 and subsequent models such as the Parker 25 and Parker 75.
These slimmer ink converter's can be purchased here.
Please note that you cannot fit aerometric ink converter's to capillary filled fountain pens.
Why Use an Ink Converter?
Ink cartridges only come in a limited range of colours, to fit a limited range of pens, and are wasteful environmentally.
Installing an ink converter into your pen means you can choose from hundreds upon hundreds of different bottled inks, find the exact shade of blue or black or dazzling shimmer inks to give your writing flair and originality.
Drawing ink up into your pen from a bottle is a deeply satisfying ritual, once you start a whole realm of ink exploration will open to you!
Cleaning your Ink Converter
Simply fill a glass with cool tap water,, immerse the nib in the water and screw the piston on the ink converter several times (this might take some time!) until the water comes out clear.
Carefully shake out excess water from the nib and feed and let the nib unit dry before re-inserting the converter. Cleaning your pen like this will insure that it will continue to work properly. Check out our pen cleaning section for cleaning fluids and tools.
We stock a wide range of fountain pen inks including Waterman, Parker, Organics Studio, J Herbin & KWZ Inks to name a few. Check out our full range here!
