When you have to remove the nib and feed from a pen section, the knock out block is an essential tool.
First soak your section, this will soften the old hard ink around the nib.
Place the section with the nib downwards into the correct size whole for the nib.
Take one of the knockout rods that is just smaller than the feed that is showing and gently tap down with a small light weight hammer until the feed and nib slide out of the section.
Some nibs are screw in and come within there own sleeves
It is not advisable to try and remove these nibs from there sections and sleeves
