Pelikan 4001 Violett / Violet

 

Dear FPN friends.

 

Well and again another Pelikan 4001 revie . It is the first full review that I have posted using my new method in order to present the true colours and all the brilliance of the ink. If you are curious to this method check the link to the article on how to depict the colours realistically.

Message for Mr Tas from London... I used the techniques and took the photo in indirect daylight. I live in a village so I do not own the greycard yet. And I thought photographing the hair of an elderly person is not so efffective (more like 80% grey ;) )

 

This time the Violet

And this too is classy in quality but not in price.  :thumbup: 

only €3,19 approx.$ 4.- for a quality ink this  is a bargain.  :notworthy1: 

 

The 4001 Inks are dry which makes them suitable for gusher pens. They are also very safe for old Fountain Pens. No wonder it was developed in the golden age of Fountain Pens.

 

The ink matures very well as I have proofed in topic Battle of the Blue Kings in which I compared a nineteen year old bottle with a brand new one. If you want to have a look at Blues click the link.

Well... if you are more into green inks.. down here is the link to the Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Green review :) 

http://www.fountainp...rilliant-green/

 

Warning though it is dry,it takes some time to dry with an 1,5 italic nib. That's no wonder because the Lamy Joy is known for having severe Vomitus, the Llatin word doctors use for the forceful  expulsion ofthe contents of ones stomach  :) 

 

The saduration is good... 

 

And for the fans of shading.... It SHAAAADES :thumbup: Just have a look at the detail pictures down here

I love this like I do my Pelikan M800 and Brilliant Green too

 

I will getting some more Pelikans and become an ornithologist  :bunny01:

 

I am doing a study in Pelikan bird wachin now :lticaptd:

 

Down here are some of the technical specs (as suggested by Ann Finley 2007)

 

They are actually quite the same as in the Brilliant Green ink

 

points 1-5 1 =   :(   5=   :D 

 

Fountain Pens:Online best writer 0.8 italic: Lamy Joy 1,5 Italic

Paper: Leonardo Ringbuch,average quality school note book made in Austria

Drying time:   Approx. 5 seconds with 0.8 nib or 20 seconds with 1,5 italic nib  points 5/3

Flow:  points: 5

Lubrication:dry but good points: 4

Bleeding: quite some on the average quality paper I used  points: 3

Shading: superb in 1.5 italic points: 5  :D 

Waterproof: Still very legible after using a swab  points: 4

Package: In nice classic bottles and  cartridges points: 3-4  

Availabilty: It is also available on Mars, just ask your Martian stationary store. I have checked also on Pluto though Martians are hard to find there  :D 

Quality: Well it's from germany so what do you guess points: 5  :) 

 

It is a very nice Violet. I first thought it was too feminin. But hello when the Byzantine empires wrote with purple inks,,,,

 

Why can't I, the Emperor of Bollogs and King of Rubbish, write with it

 

Hope this was joyful

 

Kindest Regards 

 

Peter Vlutters

 

p.s. I have added some high res photo from Photbucket. I am using this since yesterday and don't exactly how it works.... Hope they are at the bottom of this review

Das leben ist wie ein Perpetuum Mobile mit ein Mangel..... Immer im Bewegung jedoch nicht unendlich. (life is like a troubled Perpetuum Mobile ever moving but not for ever)

Tricked throughout the centuries...

For centuries people had been tricked by kings & "religion-alism"

In the 20th century people got tricked by communism

Today people get tricked by (neo)capitalism  :)

I have a bottle of this, I bought it because my uncle told me that it was the best Violet he ever used but I must say that I wasn't as impressed with it as he was. It is a nice ink but the it is really pinkish for my taste. The best Violet that I had the chance to try to date is the Waterman Violet. 

 

But, enough about my experience with the ink! Thank you very much for a lovely review, I might give this ink another shot.

This was one of the first few inks I bought, and I still love it after many years. I've used it to take notes and maybe I'm just more fond of bright colors but I had no problem looking at my notes full of this ink.

Hehe, that is true, much to my chagrin. 

 

Well, I like violets that are bluer. Not like "blue" blue, but it should have a sizable amount of blue in it. Like the Waterman Violet when your pen lays a line with a lot of ink. Dunno how best to describe it, I have some candidate inks that I would like to try but sadly I can't obtain them here.
