These are the cartridges you need to refill the Plumix. I got the blue-black refill cartridges and thought ink came out looking a bit too gray.

You could also flush out the empty cartridge and refill using your choice of bottled fountain pen inks (which come in a huge variety of colors) with a blunt tipped syringe (I went to the local pharmacy and asked for a syringe with the sharp removed). I have heard that you do need to keep the little purple disc in the cartridge to maintain proper ink flow.

This is a great blue ink. Darker than Parker, Lamy, Sheaffer Skrip, with some shading if you use the right pen. Best of all, highly water resistant, almost fully waterproof.

When you think about how long these cartridges last compared to the international short cartridges, an overall great bargain.

Got these as part of a gift for a friend. Though I have not tried the ink myself, he told me that he really enjoys using them with his Pilot Metropolitan and that the ink color and quality are very good, and behaves pretty well with regular paper.

I like the convenience of cartridges. The blue is okay, but it's not great--I don't love the color. I do like that it stands up to coffee spills and is a good consistency. Just wish Pilot would put a few of their bottled inks into cartridge form because the other blues are much, much prettier.

I have used black ink most of my adult life but buying the new fountain pen I decided to use blue ink. (It's the color I used when I was younger) I am glad I did. It is a nice change from black. I have convinced my grandson to try a fountain pen. Great purchase.

Very nice combo with the Plumix, at the price point.

I use that combo black/black for everyday work. But my sixth grade daughter, also a pen fanatic (what have I done?), carries this blue in her backpack and can swap a cartridge out of her Plumix in a flash mid-class. Never a mess. Uses it on Sept Couleur pads -- take a little bit to dry, but writes so well...

easy to replace cartridges, and very slim, for the best fountain pen I have ever owned!
