OMG - very tempting.  How much, but I'm afraid to ask.

Stilographica site says €44,  but not yet released. I believe the 10ml set are available on LCdC.

 

Enough Perle Noir to keep one going for a week or two, at least.

Pelikan has 1L bottles, but only in 4001 Brilliant Black and 4001 Royal Blue, 56USD on Amazon, 69GBP on two sites at least.  You can special order up to a gallon of various Noodler's inks, but who knows for how much.

literally and figuratively flooding the market? consumption for consumption. More and more, as it happens, of the same.

The vintage labels look nice.

The price ±50$  is ridiculously low for 5X100ml of ink.

 

The Pelikan 1L bottles are available here in Switzerland for about 26CHF = 27USD online. It is obscene.

I dare not look out how much even cheaper they are in Germany.

But i did: 18€41 aka 21$

 

I'll pass. Of course.

Hi Everyone,

I love the labels and the wax seals; one can only wonder if they used corks as well. :D

Very tempting.

I’d love one of those, but not in any of the offered colors. Some odd choices, like who would use 500ml of Vert Reseda, vs something practical like Vert Empire or Vert de Gris?   Money saved.

Those 5 colors are from the original line-up.

I am definitely thinking of the set of all 5 colors at 10ml each. Gift set with a 100ml bottle and an ink cup is kind of cool, but rather pricey. As for 500ml bottle- Violette Pensee is tempting, but am afraid that I’d drink it by mistake!

Is Vert Empire not one of the early inks?

Apparently not. At least now we know what the original five colors were - that alone is fascinating to me.

Oh, man. Why do I even come here when I know this is going to happen... when I know that I am going to by MORE ink? I don't think I will be able to use all the ink I already have before I shed this mortal coil.

Think of it as an object de arte and put it on a bookshelf or coffee table.

I think it will look awesome in the ink cabinet.

That's like discovering who the Final Five are in the Battlestar Galactica TV series.


As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

I like those Noodler's growlers you can buy. Probably very pricy though. 

 

I was tempted to buy one of the Pelikan ink bottles just because it was massive, but then I realized that it is a huge waste of money because I would never use up that ink. It would take me years. I'm sure it is intended more for nibmeisters and pen repairers who are testing lots of pens every day.

The original colour make sense:

Blue, for grown ups
Red, teachers and accountants
Green, accountants
Violet, students and public officials
Black, lawyers and accountants

I see myself using violette pensee.
