Sheaffer has upgraded its ink cartridge design for improved functionality - delivering better color identification and transportability. The color of the cartridge is now the same as the ink, making it much easier to identify the color of ink inside. For Jet Black, Blue, and Blue-Black the cartridges remain transparent but now they have an end cap which clearly identifies the ink color. This new feature still lets consumers easily see the level of ink in the cartridge. In addition, the new cartridges are now transportable. This is possible as the new cartridges can only be pierced on one end. This allows a traveler to carry an un-pierced cartridge in a fountain pen chamber, without the risk of leakage during transportation, and especially during air travel - a common concern among fountain pen aficionados.

Is there any way I can make the ink in some of these cartridges less watered down?- Asked by Geoffrey Talley on 17-Feb-14
We do not have a recommendation for adjusting the consistency of the ink without damaging the integrity of the cartridge itself. Calligraphers stress the importance of using quality paper and its effect on ink flow. Try Borden & Riley's #627 100% Rag Drawing Paper. This smooth 70 lb. paper is made of 100% cotton fibers and will be more absorbent.- Answered by MisterArt on 20-Feb-14
