fplover01 posted a topic in PelikanI read the first issue of the 2016 Pelikan newsletter and Pelikan is releasing the Pelikan Fount India in the same 30ml bottle as the 4001 ink, to market it in the document/archival inks segment. See here . This ink had been available in the distant past bottled for fountain pens. In recent years, it was available (though rather obscurely) in a not so practical plastic bottle, mainly aimed for the dip pen/caligraphy market. However once one has got to using a dip pen, Scribtol is an even better choice for a permanent black ink (absolutely NOT suitable for fountain pens and extremely difficult to remove from anything when dry). This is a fount india ink which is optimized for use in piston filling fountain pens. Provided the ink doesnt dry into the pen and good pen hygiene is practiced, it is fully safe. it is a relatively wet deep black ink, very permanent and very difficult to remove once it dries. My personal needs in this sector are covered with Pelikan 4001 Blue Black and R&K Salix and Scabiosa, and I have also filled an empty 4001 bottle with Scribtol for my glass dip pens. However it is nice that Pelikan is recognising the need to market more permanent inks and brought this back from obscurity in a nice usable bottle.
