Pelikan 4001 Dunkelgrün (Dark Green) Ink: A Review — The Pen Addict
The ink exhibits some shading in wider nibs, but in narrower nibs it is pretty flat.
ink review: pelikan blue black
Pelikan Blue Black is a member of Pelikan’s 4001 ink line – their standard, bottled fountain pen inks.

The color of the ink is not dramatically affected by the color of paper – it lays down a consistent line on both bright-white Rhodia paper and off-white Moleskine paper

Using this ink for years, my preference for sketching. NOT waterproof.
I have been using Pelikan inks for many years. I use it in my treasured Rotring fountain pens, as well as the Rotring Art Pens. I use it mostly for my artwork in combination with my Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolors. I also use it for writing and drawing on Fabriano Medioavalis Paper. I love th...
Absolutely the best for vintage, wet pens!
I was looking for an ink that would allow me to use a vintage Pelikan 100N (which has a very wet, broad nib) at work where, sadly, I have to use very cheap paper. This is it!
