Default fountain pen refills cartridges

What type of cartridge does the Orion and Jr. Gent pen use? Where to get them?

As far as I know, all fountain pen kits use the 'international standard short cartridge'. These are available from most pen kit suppliers, and there are a number of vendors who sell them over the internet. Some of the more reputable dealers include HisNibs and ISellPens; Goulet Pens has an excellent reputation and an extremely broad product offering.

I know that some vendors claim that refills can be purchased at 'any stationary shop', but in North America, that is really not true - outside a few very large cities, 'brick and mortar' stationary stores rarely carry an extensive line of fountain pens and accessories, and what they do carry tends to be refills for specific brands (MontBlanc, Cross, and perhaps Parker). Stationary stores in larger cities do have a broader selection, but they will still be strongly biased toward name brand pens and related accessories. And most of the more famous 'brand name' pens required proprietary cartridges or converters rather than the 'international standard short cartridge'.

I'm a fountain pen user, and I have a pretty broad collection of pens. I my opinion, cartridges are pretty spendy - its much less expensive to buy bottled ink and then use converters. However, cartridges are more convenient if you are traveling a lot. You can also refill cartridges using a blunt syringe.

I like the Private Reserve ink cartridges available from Exotics Blanks and
The Classic Nib, among other places

I hate it when people steal my ideas before I think of them.

If you get up towards the Little Rock area, there is a local shop that has more then a huge selection. Vanness on Cantrell(Hwy10).

Or you might think about upgrading your customers new writing instrument with a refillable type?

Also take a look at - Japanese Pens and Stationery & Shop Fine Pens, Pen Refills, Business Gifts, Corporate Gifts | Thank you for stopping by! | Colorado Pen Direct | . Both sell the international in cartridges and other bottled inks...Word of caution, they also have some sweet pens despite not being hand crafted..

I 2nd what Scott says about Vanesse. They have several brands of ink and various cartridges in a rainbow of colors. It's nice to be able to see what you're getting.
