    If what you want a different kind of nib, check on ebay. Some of the ads for nibs will tell you what pens they fit.

    If what you mean is "How do I physically do this?" then you'd be looking for instructions on removing the nib. I do not have a Shark pen, but I find that in general, if you take the converter or cartridge off, you can then wrap the nib and feed in a paper towel and just yank them out. Then you take the nib off the feed, line it up with the hole the feed goes into and push it back in.

    The lining up is usually the hard part. It can be subtle, but on at least some Jinhaos there is a flat part on the feed which lines up with a flat part on the the inside of the hole you are coaxing the feed back into, which makes it simpler.

    Even a very inexpensive pen can have enormous sentimental value, so if you are unsure about this, buy another shark to practice with. They are not expensive, true, but fif the one you have was, say, a gift, it mayb be priceless to you.
