How to refill a Kakimori & Inkstand rollerball pen

What you’ll need:
・Rollerball pen
・Bottled ink (Kakimori or Inkstand pigment ink)
・Tissues or soft cloth


Step 1: Remove the converter
Remove the converter by taking apart the rollerball cap, barrel and nib.


Step 2: Draw the ink
Twist the knob counterclockwise to lower the internal piston completely.
Submerge the tip of the converter in ink and twist the knob clockwise to draw ink into the converter.
*Ink must be refilled directly via the converter — refilling through the nib may cause damage to your pen.


Step 3
Wipe and remove excess ink from the converter and insert firmly into the nib.
Allow a few minutes for the ink to reach the nib — if ink fails to flow, apply a tissue to the nib and shake lightly.

Tip
Small amounts of bottled ink can be hard to reach with the converter. Use a dropper to transfer the required amount into a cup and continue the refill process.
