    I did this with a pair of scissors, but I found that the ink may leak, so I taped over the cartridge.
    Does/did yours leak too?

    What you can do is to remove the rubber end with the metal ball point
    (and be careful not to lose the metal ball point because it is not secured to the rubber end)

    Then cut the ink cartridge to the desired length from the removed pen tip side
    (not the air bubble side).

    Then replace the pen tip.

    Hope this helps ;)
