        1. Unscrew the barrel of the fountain pen to expose the converter.
        2. Twist the black knob end of the converter to send the piston down as far as it will go.
        3. Dip the nib of the fountain pen into the bottled ink so that the nib is submerged.
        4. Twist the black knob end the opposite direction to draw ink up into the converter.
        5. Remove the nib from the bottled ink and twist the black knob a little to force out a couple of drops of ink back into the bottle.
        6. Twist the knob end again in the opposite direction to draw a little air into the converter.
        7. Use a paper towel or cloth to wipe away any
          excess ink from the nib of your fountain pen.
