Pineider Snorkel Filler Zoom Pineider Snorkel Filler

A simple, but cleverly designed tube that allows most converters to reach the last drop of ink in your bottle.

Pineider goes back to 1774, with a reputation for making some of the finest paper, leather goods and writing instruments in the world. With new ownership, and a renewed commitment to Italian quality, history and craftsmanship, Pineider also wanted a truly innovative pen range.

One of the most renowned and respected pen designers in the world had just split up with his previous company. Dante Del Vecchio was available, and full of ideas. They got together, and Dante has designed some pens and accessories that are both beautiful and highly practical.

This Snorkel is a great example of Dante's thinking. It's beautifully simple, but it solves a real problem that many fountain pen users have: getting to the last drop of ink in a bottle.

To fill a pen the usual way, you have to submerge the nib and feed into the ink, which requires a reasonable depth of ink. But what about once there isn't enough left in the bottle? Well, you could buy another bottle and pour them in together. You could just waste that much ink. You could take the risk of mixing bits of different inks, and hope the result works ok. Or you could use this.

Historically, one of the most innovative answers was a Sheaffer filling mechanism from the 1950s. It extended a thin tube out from under the nib, which could then slurp up the last drops of ink from any bottle. It was a very complicated mechanism, though, which couldn't be produced in a cost-effective way these days. But that tube worked.

So, take a similar tube, and make it so it can be attached to almost any converter. Simple! Now the converter you're already using can draw up ink from the bottom of the bottle! The cleverly shaped connector fits standard 'international' converters perfectly, but also fits many others, including Parker, Lamy, Sheaffer and Pilot converters. The only converter we've tested so far that doesn't fit is Sailor.
