Filling a Pilot (Namiki) Falcon Fountain Pen with Bottled Ink

This video shows you how to fill your Pilot (Namiki) Falcon fountain pen using an ink cartridge or Pilot Con-50 cartridge converter from an ink bottle. It’s a very straightforward method, and is applicable to just about all cartridge/converter fountain pens, especially other Pilot pens like the Prera, Justus 95, Stargazer, and Parallel. This one’s short and sweet! Enjoy, and leave me a comment below if you have any questions at all.

    I know how to use a converter, but I wanted to provide some feedback to the video.

    I usually don’t like videos that go on and on. Unlike reading, I can’t just skip around. I’m stuck with the narrator’s droning.

    I really like this short, direct format. There are times when a longer format is appropriate, but this quick punch is more suited to video.

      Right there with you Squirrel. Show me something in a video but tell me the details in writing so I can skim and reread. 2 or 3 minute videos, 5 if necessary are great.
