How not to store a fountain pen...

If you're going to put a red cartridge into a fountain pen that's been stored for the past few months with a half-full black cartridge, it's going to come out crap brown until you actually clean the pen. After two rinses now (I don't have an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner), it's a rather pleasing rust colour. But it's still not the bright red I want it to be.

Formulating a JetPens order...

I've been lusting over various JetPens products for some time now, but I haven't had the money to buy anything. Now with the divestment of several old tchotchkes that comes with our annual spring cleaning, I may have sufficient cashular resources. So this is what I've been thinking about:

That's all I can really think of right now. I'd also like recommendations for inexpensive fountain pens that take short international cartridges, and black paper filler paper or notebooks.

Thanks in advance!

I really like this pen. Too bad it is not always appropriate to write in green.
