The Paradise Pen Store at the Dallas Galleria Mall has the MB Pink ink in stock. I saw it there an hour ago.

My local Mont Blanc pusher emporium said they would call me when they get it in. I haven't heard from them, yet, but I guess it will be any day, now. I will probably buy a bottle or two, although pink ink is not really my thing. I will have to ask S1 if a real man can use MB Pink for billets doux. Next I'll have to find someone to write  billets doux to. But that is a subject for another forum. 

 

Thanks for another timely and informative review.

I would swear I saw it at Paradise Pen here in SA 2 weeks ago when I was there. I'm nearly positive. I could check for you if you like. Also, I found an MB Boutique in Phoenix that seems to specialize in the LE inks. I can hook you up with that number too. Someone who loves pink shouldn't have to work so hard to find it.m

 

Awww, thanks Jeff_H!    I'm assured that it IS in the Paradise Pen in Dallas so I'll call them in the morning to make sure they still have it and, if they do, head that direction.  (Yay, spring break!)  If they're sold out already I'll PM you. 

 

Pen Boutique Update:  Got an email today from them that said MB Pink is backordered 2-3 weeks.  :gaah:

 

Because I really, really need more ink.  Really.

I got the last bottle at Paradise Pens in Dallas but they still have cartridges left.   I felt like I had won the lottery. 

 

They also have a house brand - the bottles look like 30mL Pelikan 4001 bottles - and I picked up their pink, too.  I'll add it to the pink comparisons thread.

I will check here locally and see what I can dredge up, if anything. I'll report back what I find, and could post some to those in need if stock is available. We can't have ladies wanting for pink ink. There is something inherently uncivilized about that.


I enjoy MB 146 pens, Sailor, Pilot and Platinum pens as well. I have a strong attraction to dark red and muted green ink, colors I dislike for everything but FP ink. I also enjoy practicing my handwriting and attempting to improve it. I love the feel of quality paper under a gold nib.

Well I'm not trying to be. If we feed the profiteers, they'll just keep doing it. I think we just need to be patient and the MB stores will get more. It might be a few weeks, but that just gives us more time to enjoy the inks and samples we already have. See win-win.  :)

My local Paradise Pen has two bottles left, $20/bottle. They are holding them for me until tomorrow. Do I need to send any to Las Vegas or anywhere else? I promise to not even include any bad lawyer jokes in the deal.....
