Pelikan Fount India For Fountain Pens In 30Ml Bottle

Recommended Posts

I 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.

They also have replaced the brillant-green 4001 by a dark green.

I have not heard that dark green is intended to replace brilliant-green. My understanding was that this was a regular addition to the 4001 line-up, not a replacement.

As far as I know the old brililant-green is discontinued.

 

On Pelikan's german website it is not listed anymore:

On the english page there's still the old ink range:

Oh No! got to run out and get some more of it before it vanishes.....it was for the price, a grand green-green shading ink. R&K Verdura beat MB Irish Green by a nose, 4001 Green by a neck, in a 15 paper test of 11 different green inks of various shades and murkiness.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

When I click on the German link I can see both the brilliant green and the dark green mentioned at the price of 4.30 euros. What am I missing?

:o

I read:

Erhältlich in folgenden Farben:

Königsblau (=royal blue), Brillant-Schwarz (=black), Blau-Schwarz (=blue-black), Brillant-Rot (=brilliant red), Brillant-Braun (=brilliant brown), Dunkelgrün (=dark green), Violett (=purple), Türkis (=turquois)

 

 

[edit:]

Ah! Now I see the confusion.

There are two websites:

http://www.pelikan.com/pulse/Pulsar/de_DE.FWI.displayShop.207275./tinte-4001

and

http://www.pelikan.com/pulse/Pulsar/de_DE.Store.displayStore.113865./die-pelikan-tinte-4001

 

So which of both is right?
