Stay away from those. I can't be 100% sure just from the photo, but from past experiences with the same (or very similar) design I can tell you they are horrible. Never mind that they disintegrate just when looked at, they won't fit most fountain pens, the ones that take standard international cartridges. If they ship free, you might think you are only risking $1.79. No! You are also risking your pens and probably your shirt pocket, not to mention your peace of mind. Get some Schmidt converters even if they cost you more than the pens you are going to use them with.

The thing is, I can't find the Schmidt converters here, do you know any sites that offer International delivery at GOOD prices for it?
Anyway, I already ordered them so I'll try them when an old $1.5 Schneider I have

It depends on what your definition of "good prices" is. If you are hoping to get a Schmidt (or similar) converter for under $10, shipped internationally to a "minor" market (sorry for that term), then you are probably out of luck. You could try seitz-global.com they sell the Kaweco converter for about $6 and they ship free from Germany to the USA. They might ship to where you live. However, there are over 2600 listings (world-wide) for fountain pen converters on eBay. You just have to budget a bit more and dig deeper.

Don't worry about that term, I'm looking for shipping that's under $10 and a maximum of $15 for shipping alone, I'm probably going to get the converter and a pen or two and European sites tend to ship here for much cheaper, thanks.
And the problem with eBay is that when the seller doesn't give the international shipping cost, it's usually at least $20 for the tiniest item and can't be combined with other items.
Seitz ships to Saudi Arabia, which is right next to UAE, where I live but not here :(

You're probably right. Cultpens ships worldwide for £10, regardless of quantity. They sell the Kaweco for £2.49. Good luck

Thoughts on Wooden Pens
Hi All, I'd like to know your thoughts an opinions on pens made of wood. Things I'm interested in are shape/contour (and whether or not that is an important factor for you), price, weight, wood type (as well as color, grain structure/density). Also, RIP this community. I'm sure there are better places to buy pens anyways :(

So, uh....the Writing Community is back?
Under the COMMUNITIES menu, Writing is back under My Communities. But it's not showing up under the SHOP menu for me. And it only has one fountain pen for purchasing so far. Is this an error, or is it permanently back?

World's Best Pencils
So I've been thinking of exploring the world of pencils and wanted to get some feedback from everyone. Do you have any pencils that are a "must try"? [image] Here are a few that have caught my eye so far: Ticonderogas Palomino Golden Bears (already have the blackwings) General's Semi-Hex Nataraj Bold Staedtler Noris Eco HB Tombow Mono 100 HB Also, I have become obssessed with this great YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJJOStpzNewBJ0XfhRSsmfw While we're at it, add any reccomendations for sharpeners and erasers you also enjoy! I look forward to reading your suggestions and sharing any acquisitions I may come across.

I want to start using a fountain pen in school.
I'm in 10th grade and about last month I thought I'd learn cursive writing, I saw how quick I was getting into it and enjoying writing I thought I'd make it more enjoyable. I have about 200 shekels to spend aprox 50$ If anyone could recommend a good fountain pen/kit, I'd appreciate it. I am probably getting a Parker pen soon since I can get it for free, but I want to know what I should look into. Thanks.
