Then they came out with ink cartridges for fountain pens. When the cartridge was empty, I used the previous ink bottle to refill the cartridge by squeezing the cartridge, sticking it in the ink bottle, and letting go so it would suck up ink.
A great starter pen! This charcoal black matte Lamy Safari fountain pen has a black steel extra-fine nib and comes with a Lamy ink cartridge to get you started writing right away. Requires a Lamy Z24 converter to use bottled fountain pen ink (sold separately).
