Not a shade of green for me. But thanks for the review.

Is for me.....Cross use to brand Pelikan 4001 inks as Cross (legally) , so that ink could be the unfortunately discontinued green-green shading 4001 Brilliant Green ink that Pelikan discontinued because so many wanted a dull darker green that don't shade. :angry:


I do have one full bottle of 4001 Brilliant Green left.........By me in the Green-Green Ink Race....R&K Verdura @ E8.50 finished a nose in front of the now E-19 MB Irish Green, which was a neck in front of Brilliant Green....For then E-4.50...perhaps @ E-5 something now for 4001 inks.

I don't know what Cross Inks cost in I buy Pelikan inks...........up to now I'd not had a reason to buy a Pelikan Ink marked Cross.


(Unfortunately I do have a very nearly full bottle of that duller than mud new 4001 darker green ink.)

Darn...can't give it to the neighbor I hooked into fountain pens....I gave him a spare bottle of that lively green-green R&K Verdura shading ink.............. How can I give him an ink that just lazily lays there doing nothing, like the new 4001 Dull Darker Green. :wacko:

Noobies have to be lead joyfully down the slippery slope of ink abuse.

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.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:
