How often do you switch ink color?

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all doing well. Im curious as to how often you change the ink in your fountain pens and what is currently your favorite ink that you are using? I am considering getting the MB Petrol Blue.

Usually every year or so. But sometimes more often.

Typically when I see an ink review of an ink I have, but haven't used.

About twice a month.

I keep 3-4 pens on my desk with different inks in them (collection is about 20 pens but most sit empty most of them time). I change inks when one runs out or when I really want to try a new ink. Works out to about once every 2-3 months.

The longer I have collected pens the less I have the patience for pen cleaning.
