Kafka
« am: 28. Oktober 2004, 13:06:00 »
Hello all MB collectors,
Could anybody tell me if it is normal that, in the Kafka fountain pen convertor, a small spring moves freely ?
My fp just comes out from a sealed set box, bought at MB\'s.
Maybe this subject has already been dealt with, but my German is often too poor to understand all emails exchanged...
Thanks in advance !
Best regards from Paris (France)

The Kafka doesn\'t have a converter.  The piston mechanic in the Kafka might look similar to a converter but you can\'t remove it and you can\'t put cartridges into the Kafka - so it is not a converter...
But to answer your question: Yes, it\'s normal - and you\'ll find it in the new converters of Montblanc as well. The moving spring inside the ink tank prevents the stuck of the ink in the back of the tank and possible stop of the ink flow.  A simple and clever addition.

Hello Axel,
Thanks very much for your kind answer.
In the meantime, I have had a look to other Kafka fp, and they all presented the same charactreristics -- so, I was conforted, anyway.
I have seen informations about the new Brandeburg edition 89 ; as there is no leaflet at MB\'s, once again, could any community member scan the artcile refered to, and show them in the forum ?
Best regards to all MB fanatics

Thierry,
contact me directly and I\'ll send you a picture.  The size of the pic is too big for this forum.
