NEWS: We have another small batch of Pelikan Blue-Black ink! Yay! This is a great traditional ink color. Supplies are limited. Get it while you can because we never known when we will be able to get more. The last few times were were able to acquire this great ink, it sold out very quickly, just saying!

As many of you know, several years ago, authorities in the US determined that iron gall, used in inks for centuries could be hazardous to our heath and that was the end of true blue-black inks that wrote blue, then oxidized to darker and darker blue, eventually turning black. This was a sad day for ink loves! Especially since there was no advance notice, it just happened and all of a sudden true blue-black ink was no longer available. What is left is just a few substitute blue-black inks that write a nice dark blue line, but are not true blue-black ink.
