How do I refill my fountain pen from an ink pot without spilling?

No Spill Refill

When you draw fountain pen ink from the bottle through the nib, say from your Graf von Faber Castell pen, you need to blot the ink off the nib. You may leak a few drops of your pen inks here and there. Although bottle ink for ink pens offers an old-fashioned genteel character, these types of ink pen refills can be messy. Make sure that the inks are kept most, since water in the inks can dry out and clog the pen, creating a potential accident. Also, remember India ink dries faster than other pen inks and is more difficult to wipe off in the event of a mishap.
