Missed last time.. not going to miss this :)
Thanks for the drop.
These pens are better than 10xcostlier pens, hold lots of ink and dont dry out even after not using for many days. What's even better, they can be refilled many times.
No problem, glad you were able to join the drop this time around!
Hey @writeon -- You're most welcome, we aim to please. Glad you could join this time!
Best way is to wrap a thick tissue around the nib, use a pair of pliers and pull. Both the nib and feed come out.
Fill the ink with a syringe or eyedropper.
Put the nib and feed back into the pen. It is a friction fit. So align the nib and feed and push it into the pen
Be careful to keep the nib and feed wrapped securely while pulling with the pliers. Else you might damage the nib.
Another way is to put the pen, barrel side, in a cup if hot water. Just hot, not scalding. This expels the air out of the barrel and will create a partial vacuum when the barrel cools down.
Now place the pen nib side down into an ink bottle. The pen will pull in ink as it cools down. This is the safest way to refill but also restricts you from using different ink colors.
If you are changing the ink color, wash the nib, feed and pen thoroughly before refill.

Haha cool. I thought I was losing my marbles for a minute or that someone had an epic typo.
