Pelikan Ink *


In the year 1838 the art of painting with water colors was very popular among the higher levels of society, but the choice of colors at attractive prices proved to be slim. The chemist Carl Hornemann decided to change that and founded his own production close to the city of Hanover, Germany. A gin distillery close by first provided the distilled water he needed for his ink production. During the centuries that followed, the Pelikan competence in the production of inks and water colors grew continuously.

A bottle of Pelikan ink consist 62,5ml ink.

    I have enjoyed writing with Pelikan inks for several years. The quality is very good and the colors available are delicious. Highly recommend to match your Pellikan writing instruments!

  2. Björn Mäkelä

    I bought this ink for a vintage Pelikan 200 from the 60’s that I restored. The color is really a nice shade and the ink is good and not runny.
    Great ink for a good price!

    Excessive? I prefer well-informed. I’ve been using fountain pens since 1972 and currently spend hours each day using them at work and for my own personal writing. Over the years, I’ve tried many different inks, but always return to Pelikan 4001 as a reliable, trouble-free dependable ink. I primarily use two colors: black for transcription of notes, and blue black for my commentary or free writing. I find the blue black color perfect for sufficient contrast and a delectable nuanced shading when using a medium nib, darker when using a fine nib. I find regular blues too gaudy, black alone too somber, blue black the perfect hue for musing. Looking forward to what thoughts lie waiting in ten bottles of ink!

    The blue Pelikan 4001 ink is behaving good in all of my fountain pens but the color is maybe a bit dull compared to other brands. The Blue-Black ink I normally use in my fountain pen which I use for writing in lab journals and is of the 4001 range my preferred color. The brown ink is a nice color to write comments in reports of colleagues since it stands out really well.

    Overall I would recommend the Pelikan 4001 ink range except for the red color, then I rather have the Lamy red ink.

    This colour is bright, vibrant and has displayed a bit of a red sheen when the ink is particularly wet.

    It behaves wonderfully and is easy to clean out of a pen with water. I have had this in a TWSBI Diamond 580 for some time and there is no sign of staining in the transparent barrel.

    Looking for turquoise ink? Look no further! Especially for the price, this is a wonderful turquoise!

    Zeer fijne vulpeninkt, diepzwart, sneldrogend en niet duur. Perfect!

    I bought two bottles, the violet and the blue black and they are stunning.
    The bottles, which are beautiful are the 62,5ml versions, rather than the 30ml ones on the picture, which was a wonderful surprise.
    I was looking for a lovely dark purple and as picky as I am, this one is fantastic.
    The Pelikan 4001 inks write dry, so if you’re looking for quality dry inks, then look no further.

    This is my first ink from the 4001 series, i opted for the classic blue black. The ink is behaiving well, in my opinion is more fluid as compared with the equivalent (Tanzanite) from the Edelstein series.

    This is a great black ink, especially for wet nibs. The ink flow is even and the ink dries quickly. I also purchased the royal blue, blue-black, and dark green colors. I can’t wait to try them all. Thank you Appelboom for packing my order so carefully and thank you for the cookies.

    This ink is amazing.
    It is affordable (see proicw)
    It is plentiful : more fully submerged nibs = less waste
    The bottle is nice
    The ink is well behaved, if a bit dry (use it in bigger nibs)
    But moreover, and this is my major point: black and blue-black are very water resistant.

    Hard to beat this ink for official settings. Everyone should have some.

    The Pelikan 4001 inks perform well in Pelikan and in other fountain pens. The ink flows well and dries quickly. Colors are well saturated with a nice variety. The blue-black color is a very nice neutral color suitable for any occasion or environment. Appelboom prices for ink are some of the best in the business.

    This Pelikan 4001 Royal Blue ink is a rich blue color with purple tones. The ink flows easily and dries quickly and works in any fountain pen. It’s particularly suited for wet writing nibs. These are good inks in a variety of well saturated colors. The price is reasonable as well.

    The turquoise ink from Pelikan is a great ink for every day use. It’s a vibrant blue which is interesting enough to be … well …. interesting, but also totally acceptable for office use. It shades really nicely and flows well through any nibs I’ve tried. I find it a nice alternative to Kon Peki and it performs well in my Lamy 2k in partit.

    De donkergroen is een mooie kleur, goed leesbaar en doet het prima in mijn vintage Pelikan.
