-The converter (see pictures) comes already inside the pen. You will need to remove this to insert the cartridge
-To remove it, unscrew the body of the pen from the nib (the metal part unscrews from the black part -- see picture)
-Gently pull on the converter (there's no ink in it, or at least there shouldn't be since you haven't used it, so don't worry about messes). It should come out without needing you to twist or turn it, just pull.
-To insert the ink cartridge: HOLD THE NIB SO IT IS POINTING UPWARDS (this will prevent messes from the ink). The ink cartridge has 2 ends: a tapered one and one that's got a little hollow section. Insert the cartridge with the hollow section first, and push it into place (DO NOT TURN OR TWIST IT AS YOU INSERT IT, JUST PUSH IT GENTLY). The instructions say you "may feel or hear a slight click when the cartridge is fully inserted," but I did not feel this click -- if you don't feel a click, you may carefully remove the ink cartridge and check if there is ink in the hollow end. If there is ink in the hollow end, it was inserted correctly, and you need to carefully push it back into place (again NIB UP!). Be careful -- if the cartridge was inserted correctly, there WILL be ink in that hollow end, and if you tip it the wrong way you might end up with ink everywhere.
-Try writing! It might take a second for the ink to start flowing, but it should work just fine!
Again, that's just how I personally inserted the cartridge, it seems pretty straight forward but if you are a newbie and don't know anything about fountain pens (like me), having the instructions (and pictures) clearly laid out might help. My advice to Pilot -- in the instructions, include pictures of each part of the pen so we know what each part is! Also, including better pictures for the instructions will help make things clear, the black and white illustrations are only helpful if you already know what the different parts of the pen are.
I have yet to try the converter, so I can't comment on that part yet. But overall, the pen writes GREAT, the nib is a nice fine tip, and the barrel of the pen is completely gorgeous. If you love to write, or you have a friend/family member who loves to journal, or is just passionate about nice pens, this is a great gift! Perfect for someone who's never had a fountain pen before!
My first fountain pen was a Lamy Safari, which was okay, but kinda scratchy.
This pen writes smooth as butter and applies ink to the page nice and wet. I wish I had bought this one first!
As a lefty, this pen works amazingly.
It comes with 1 black ink cartridge and a squeeze converter.
The converter isn't the greatest, but it does the job, and it was free!
I'm using Noodler's Antietam, and it writes like a dream!
The med point nib writes at about .7mm in my experience, though it varies by paper texture and quality.
I wound up buying a Pilot MR "Animal" White Tiger (medium nib) as well as a Pilot MR Retro Pop Red (fine nib) along with two Parker Vector (medium nib) fountain pens, which are in the same $10-$15 price range. The Retro Pop has an anodized aluminum-like finish, and the Animal has a glossy lacquer-like finish. Both seem pretty scratch-resistant. I really like how both of my Pilot pens write, and I think they should fit the bill for anyone who wants something that stands out more than a typical pen, but isn't huge and too flashy.
I like my Parker Vectors, too, but given the choice I'd take the Pilot MRs. They write more smoothly, look like a higher-end pen, and came with an ink cartridge and converter. On the other hand, the Vectors are more understated, smaller and easier to pocket, and they're less prone to having little ink droplets escape the nib when capped. The Pilot MR medium nib draws a slightly finer line than the Parker Vector medium, but it could be a difference in ink viscosity. I'll be using both as everyday pens, but I'll be making more effort to take good care of the Pilots and in the future I'm more likely to keep collecting Pilot pens.
