About Clear Pilot CON-40

The Pilot CON-40 fountain pen converter fits most Pilot cartridge converter style fountain pens. Pilot pens use a proprietary ink cartridge and can only use Pilot converters as well.

Each Pilot CON-40 converter comes with a clear plastic body to see the ink level. Inside are small ball bearings to agitate and keep the ink fresh. The converter has a small twist knob to control the piston within the converter to fill with fountain pen ink.

Works. Doesn't completely fill ink reservoir. Seems like it will last with a little TLC.

I have several of these converters. (What can I say - I like Pilot pens.) They all seem to be working fine. Will probably buy more in the future too. :)

I bought the con-40 to use with my Pilot Kakuno to sample inks. It does no have a lot of capacity but for my purpose it works well.

This converter lifts my Pilot MR Metropolitan to a new level. Definitely worth it.

Used in Metropolitan with Italic-Medium, Fine, & Medium nibs.

Pros: Best ink flow of all the Pilot Converts I've used so far. The filling action is smooth and the ink flow has been consistent with different types of inks.

Cons: You can hear the ball-bearings rattling if you jostle the pen around. While it has no functional impact on the performance of the pen, it makes it feel cheap and has lead to me being hesitant lending my pens to people.

If you need a converter, my opinion has this one well above the CON-50.

Beats the Con-20, higher in quality but tiny ink capacity.

The Pilot CON-40 does exactly what it's supposed to do... I used this to replace the squeeze converter that came with my Pilot Metropolitan, and I'm quite happy with that decision. The converter contains three steel balls to keep the ink mixing, and I've experienced only flawless functioning of this converter.

Lower capacity, but reliable and these work much better in the Pilot Metro pens (compared to the bladder fill converters that come with the pens). Only takes a second to refill so not a big deal for me - even for long writing sessions - they still last for many pages of writing and even when used for work purposes in the office, I may have to refill maybe twice a week

I cannot get this new model more than 2/3 full, which is frustrating. The prior design (with the black twister) seemed much better!
