  1. HELLO FPN MEMBERS I am a Delhi based research student who has just entered in the world of fountain pens. I purchased two fountain pens Pilot Metropolitan and Jinhao X750 from Ravi’s Pens point very recently after my disappointment with Camlin Trinity (its ink flow turned out to be terrible). I have decided I won’t upgrade to Lamy or TWSBI now. I know you guys might get be getting this a lot to the extent it might sound little banal but I am looking for budget fountain pens under 1000 INR (15 dollars). I am thinking to buy a platinum preppy soon but I really want to try some Indian fountain p
  2. so I just bought a new metro my first pen above 10$ and I wanted a Ink that is somewhat water resistant since noodler's cost about twice the pen here where I live I used cheap Indian fountain pens couple of wality 69T and camlin 47 series the nib on pilot was perfect it was sharp and hint of feedback like pencil but here's what my bad luck did for me pen doesn't hold much Ink maybe I don't know how to fill it but it only writes about 3 pages ( A4 size simple copy paper ) and I put the pen away for 3 days after I start to write it has such a saturated line almost seems black on paper but

    Pelikan 4001 Blue Black Ink

    Pendemonium announced in last night's Midnight Madness newsletter that they have 57 bottles of the discontinued Pelikan 4001 Blue Black ink for sale. $15./bottle for first bottle, $13./bottle for 2 or more bottles. If you recall, this iron gall ink was suddenly taken off the market in the States when US banned iron gall ink production for "health" reasons. It's an excellent blue black ink and rarely comes on the market. I hope all members who want some will be able to get a bottle. Available from Sam and Frank at Pendemonium.com Mary
  4. I think I've been using Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue for 99% of the time I write with fountain pens. It's cheap here, easily available for a long time and I like it. But I'm in the mood recently for some black ink as well. I've seen that Noodler's Heart of Darksness and Bulletproof are highly praised here as being the blackest of them all, but I can't find it locally and ordering it would cost me five times more than my regular Pelikan ink. I don't think it's simply worth it, with that money I can buy a new pen (or save for a really nice one). However, at a shop near me, I've found Pelikan 4001 b
  5. I've had a few pens which were too wet. And I also recently received a new pen which cost many hundreds of dollars but was about to be sent back for writing both too wet and uneven wetness. In the past year I've tried several so called drier inks with little or no change. But recently three knowlegeable FPN'ers recommended Pelikan 4001. I filled a too wet pen with it and was very pleased. The pen wrote "just right". Then I filled another with the same benefit. Lastly, I filled the pen that was about to be returned. It too is now "just right" and it writes a bit finer, which I like

    Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Green

    Pelikan 4001 Brillant Grün /Brilliant Green Dear FPN friends. Since I have various Pelikan 4001 inks who I like I will do reviews on them. The pelikan inks are classics and classy. Classy in quality but not in price. only €3,19 approx.$ 4.- for a quality ink this is a bargain. The Inks are dry which makes htem suitable for gusher pens. They are also very safe for old Fountain Pens. No wonder it was developed in the golden age of Fountain Pens. The ink matures very well as I have proofed in topic Battle of the Blue Kings in which I compared a nineteen year old bottle with a brand

    Nib Creep(?)

    I mixed Pelikan BB and Pelikan Brilliant red to get a dark red color ink. But the nib is stained with a somewhat shiny green. It looks nice when seen from far but here is a close up picture. Any thoughts on this? The ink is very wet to write with (compared to the bb) but does not bleed through the cheap paper I'm using. cheers

    Pelikan 4001 Violett / Violet

    Pelikan 4001 Violett / Violet Dear FPN friends. Well and again another Pelikan 4001 revie . It is the first full review that I have posted using my new method in order to present the true colours and all the brilliance of the ink. If you are curious to this method check the link to the article on how to depict the colours realistically. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/266271-presenting-your-ink-with-realistic-colours-counter-the-differences-between-paper-and-monitor/ Message for Mr Tas from London... I used the techniques and took the photo in indirect daylight

    My Blacks - You Know I Love Them!

    I have often commented about black inks in general but though it was time for a little comparison of the ones I actually own. Also, I've started using the Pelikan 4001 again and still quite enjoy it, I'm ashamed to say. However, the recent post on here about Aurora v Pelikan made me try the Aurora one out and I'm impressed. Along with the Aurora Blue, their Black is great in my Moleskines - I use F or EF/XF nibs generally - and they both make a nice change from my customary use of 'The Master' - Pelikan 4001 Blue Black. So here are my inks. All written on my usual Rhodia
