Fountain pen is described as a pen filled from an external source and containing an ink reservoir that automatically feeds the writing point.

The ink is fed to the nib through a "feed" via a combination of gravity and capillary action. Filling the fountain pen reservoir with ink involves replacing a disposable ink cartridge, filling the pen with an eyedropper, or using one of a variety of internal mechanisms which suck ink into the reservoir from a bottle through the nib.
