Propose it on Massdrop. They have a Writing Section that includes Pens, Ink, etc. A current item is a Pelikan M1000 which has a group of 200 for the lowest price of $459. I ordered one.

I had requested Mr Rajaram, who is a partner in the Bril Company to produce a lot of the Blue Black few days ago. However, his response was that he will let me know when they produce the same. May be if we can commit on some numbers based on the group buy, I can try convincing him by visiting the factory.

Why not look at ordering all 6 colours as a pack...( Royal Blue, Black, Emerald Green, Blue-black, Laural Rose and Turquoise Blue), maybe a 100 nos group buy per colour

I am for it if a 100 bottles per color order will encourage Bril. Would it be possible to rope in our foreign pen colleagues also into this group buy? It will be easier to meet this quantity then and also Bril is highly sought after by the curious pen lovers.

I'll join as a foreign group member if permitted. I especially love Bril Royal Blue but I'm open to try other colors, among which I am especially interested to try Black, since I have heard good things about it.

That is a great idea if we can solve the shipping problems. As far as I can tell, there is no source in the US for Indian inks today except one eBay seller in India. So I would definitely join.

But for me, ignorance is a problem. I have tried a little Camlin ink (loved it) and I've heard of Chelpark ink but not tried it. Otherwise, I have no idea what inks are available in India or how experienced users feel about them. Could someone provide a little education for us foreigners?
