Very simple yet attractive and has more than 100 years of history, I will introduce you a fountain pen that were produce on the 40s in which was the golden era of fountain pen making in Japan.
This fountain pen was in stock for a long period of time at the original factory.

Above manual is for the Waterman Safety pen which is very similar to this model, You can refer to that before using it. This is a very delicate pen with vintage retractable eyedropper mechanism. Please make sure to follow the instructions. If you unscrew the grip section from the barrel may cause damage to the retractable mechanism and mechanism will be broken inside eventually.

Other then above mentioned precautions, you would love the pen as in any Japanese pens this mechanism is no longer available.
This Rube Goldberg contraption is an eyedropper filler with retractable nib. Think of it as a small vial of ink that happens to have a nib inside.
When you open the vial, it looks like a normal vial and you can fill it with ink. Turn the dial on the end and a nib comes out and seals against the section, after which you can use it like a normal fountain pen. Compared to the slip cap pens of the time, what made it "safe" was that they could not leak while closed in the pocket since it is just like a small vial with a seal in the cap. After uncapping it, you must remember to fully extend the nib while holding the thing in the upright and locked position or you will spill a lot of ink. Step 1: Retractable mechanism: Same mechanism with Waterman Safety pen.
Screw the dial out the nib will go inside the barrel. Position will be upright or you may spill the ink.
Safety filling system were mostly abandoned after the inner cap and comb feed were invented. The inner cap seals against the part where the nib meets the section and prevents runaway ink from getting on the rest of the section where it might leak out or get on your fingers. The comb feed provided much more surface area for ink to adhere to.
Together, these developments solved the early leak problems and made safety pens obsolete. Step 2: Once the nib is completely in, then it is ready to fill the ink in upright position.
Safety filling have a couple of advantages that allowed them to linger on well after they had been made obsolete. Since the nib was kept immersed in ink when not in use, you could use far nastier ink (including India ink, if you're careful) that would clog ordinary fountain pens.
Waterman actually marketed some as art pens because they could be used with India ink. Also, since the entire ink chamber is exposed when you uncap it, air pressure remains equalized and the pen is immune to problems from atmospheric pressure, making it popular for aviation use before hidden collectors and pressurized cabins were invented. Step 3: When the nib is completely retracted, then you can fill the ink with a dropper. NISHIO ZERO: OSAKA'S STATIONARY LEGEND.
