I was recently looking at my profile and debating whether I should add a favorite ink.  One of my favorites when using cartridges has always been Graf von Faber-Castell's Hazelnut Brown. 

 

Graf's inks no longer seem to be available at the U.S. stores I normally order from (Goulet, Pen Chalet).  The manufacturer's site doesn't seem to have a direct-to-consumer sales option.

 

The ink does still appear to be in production, and is available at JetPens, but it seems slightly ridiculous to order a European ink from Japan to go the Americas.

 

Does anyone know the status of these inks in North America?  Thanks.

JetPens is an online store that operates from San Jose, California.

VANNESS, Pen Boutique & Goldspot all seem to have it listed on their web sites.

Anderson Pens also has Graf von Faber Castell inks online, including the Hazelnut Brown in bottles and cartridges.  They have a store in Chicago and ship online from Wisconsin.  I buy regularly from them.

Huh!  I knew they shipped from California, but I always thought that was after their warehouse was stocked from Japan.

 

Thank you, everyone, for the other suggestions.  I'm glad to see I have some options after all.  Perhaps they have just shrunk their distribution network.
