Sailor Ink Bar Disposable Fountain Pen
I've been looking at this Sailor Ink Bar disposable fountain pen at JetPens.com for some time and decided to get one when I was rounding out a recent order. It's a very basic fountain pen: white plastic body that has a clear plastic panel to show the ink level cap, and clear plastic cap that covers a fine point nib. Ink is black or blue-black, nothing amazing but just a good workhorse fountain pen. But there are some thrills to come.
Julie (Okami) from Whatever points out this post from Good Pens that takes you step-by-step through the process of removing the nib off your disposable pen and refilling it with the ink of your choice. So I gave it a try, carefully pulling the nib out with a pair of regular plyers. I'm looking forward to using up this black ink and adding some of my own,
