As I mentioned earlier this year, I wondered what happens to my handcrafted pens once they have run out of ink. Does the owner buy an ink refill? Does he or she know the type of refill needed? Or, does the pen migrate to the bottom of the drawer or worse get thrown out? This thought drove me to create my first blog entitled “How to maintain your handcrafted pen for years!”
Now that I have recently introduced Rollerball Pens, I have decided to expand my earlier blog to include the procedure for the replacing the ink cartridge on my Rollerball Pens. You should note that both the Slimline and Rollerball pens use similar styles of ink refills and employ similar procedures to install them.
To replace the rollerball cartridge, unscrew the pen’s end cap to expose the rollerball ink cartridge. Pull out the old rollerball cartridge and replace it with a new cartridge. Then reattach the end cap back onto the main body of the pen. You are now ready for several more months of writing enjoyment.
