Marlen is italian producer of fountain pens. It seems they offer also inks. I was given this ink during polish FPD (fountain pen day).

Marlen Brwon isn't very interesting. It can be described as an average brown. It's sold in generic 30 ml bottle. The color is medium saturated. The ink lacks lubrication but flows rather well. It's not waterproof.

I'm not sure if Pelikan produces inks for other companies.

Don't know if they do, but this is the second ink I've seen that comes in a Pelikan 4001-shaped bottle.

Paradise Pens uses the same bottle for it's house brand ink which the sales person said comes from Private Reserve. So the bottle probably doesn't signify much of anything.

Do I recall that Cross is at least one ink for which the Pelikan-like bottle is significant?

I think it is kind of a nice looking brown.

Thanks for the review.


Be Happy, work at it. Namaste
