This quality Kuelox dip pen set includes two dip pens and five assorted nibs.

Before Fountain Pens there were Dip Pens. Dip pens are very simple writing instruments that consist of a nib holder and a replaceable nib that is simply pushed into the business end of the holder. They don't use an ink cartridge or contain an ink reservoir of any kind. You simply dip the nib in ink and write. The biggest drawback with dip pens is that they can only hold enough pen for between a few words or a few lines, then you have to dip the nib back in the ink to continue.

The fountain pen was regarded as a huge improvement and rapidly took over from the dip pen. Being able to write pages instead of just a few lines was regarded as a major improvement but there are some very distinct advantages to a Nib Pen. There is practically nothing that can go wrong with a Dip Pen - you can use any type of ink in them, they don't clog or leak, there are no fine feeders or capillary tubes to block, and you can very easily replace the nib allowing you to use a wide range of nibs in the same pen.

Oh, and they're fun to write with.

But here are the basics:
1) Dip the nib into an ink well for a few seconds.
2) Drag the nib over the edge of the ink well to remove excess ink.
3) Get the nib started on a scrap of paper.
4) Write. When it runs out of ink repeat 1) to 2).

It's best not to dip the nib into a bottle of ink that you use for your fountain pens as it could become contaminated with paper fibres which could block your fountain pen. You don't need a fancy ink well though - an egg cup is ideal. 

Please Note: These nibs have a paraffin based sealant on them to prevent tarnishing and need to be washed in warm water with a bit of detergent before use. Otherwise they won't draw up the ink.

Dip pens are still in wide usage today and are the weapon of choice for many illustrators, artists, graphic novellists especially manga authors.
