Blue Black-Pelikan 4001 Pelikan TRUE Blue Black Ink - Limited Supplies Available

We have another small batch of Pelikan Blue-Black ink! Yay! This is a great traditional ink color. Supplies are are limited. Get it while you can because we never know when we'll be able to get more!  The last few times we 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 health 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 lovers! Especially since there was no advance notice, it just happened and all of a sudden true blue-black ink was no longer available, just a few substitute blue-black inks that wrote a nice dark blue line, but are not true blue-black ink.

Pelikan 4001 Fountain Pen Ink

Pelikan's first writing inks were called 4001. The reason for this name was a designation found in the Receptu Buch which was used to record formulas for different product lines. Writing ink formulas were in Book Four and the first formula was recorded as 001. Hence the designation "4001".
