    Wink World's Worst Pen/Ink PIF!

    Warning! A sample vial of Baystate Blue ink, AND the pen to put it in. (That is if the feed hasn't melted by now.)

    This blue Pelikano Junior has been my BSB pen since the beginning. One day, while cleaning the pen, I carelessly left the section sitting in a glass of water for two-point-five seconds too long. It left a permanent mark.

    Here, the inkstained section compared to a NORMAL Pel Junior.



    I may also include another sample of a different ink, but you may (or may not! Muahahaaa!) have to provide your own pen for that.

    So go ahead. If you have the guts.

    CONUS only. Offer will remain open for a bit. Random choosing of the loser, er, winner. I'd say good luck, but, you know...

    Not an entry (fer sure!), just a Thank You for the opportunity for newcomers to come face to face with the infamous BSB complete with a Sacrificial Pen. To observe the behavior of the ink and it's steady deleterious effect on the helpless Pelikano. Only the Brave.

    I'd dye the whole grip section blue at this point.

    Geographically ineligible or I'd be in. Love Pelikano Juniors and curious about BSB.

    Not an entry, because I already have this ink and an inexpensive pen I use it in. If that weren't the case, I would have entered though. FWIW, I do kind of like the color of Baystate Blue, but I'm not sure it's the greatest choice for everyday writing and it can be tricky to maintain, as others already noted.

    Pelikanos are incredibly good... they used to be bullet proof for school kids

    I like to live dangerously and the bottle of BSB that I purchased has become BSP (Purple) with chunks.

    This post constitutes an official entry into damnation.

    Annnnd the loser is:

    DavidtheGnome, of Cleveland, OH! (Chosen by the highly suspect eeny-meeny method).

    David, c'mon down!

    Alas. Please PM me with name and postal address (and next of kin). Please don't forget your HazMat suit when unboxing. I will deport the package when the ink stops pulsating. May The Force be with you.

    As the aforementioned 'winner' has not come to claim his albatross...(and who can blame him?)...if Monday comes, the PIF is going back into rotation.

    Beware.

    After a long and unhealthy relationship with BSB I strongly support the idea of a unique pen for its use.

    Okay, let's make this interesting. I suggest the loser be required to sing "Born Under a Bad Sign" a cappella, record it, and post the mp3 to a free mp3 hosting site and post the link here. And since I have one of the world's worst singing voices (not as bad as Yoko Ono's, but maybe a close second), y'all had better hope and pray Sailor Kenshin doesn't decide to implement my idea and then pick me as the unlucky sap.

    Yep, yep, that's correct. I am hereby throwing my hat into the ring.

    I can't believe you don't have a winner yet for real. I am not interested in BSB, so I am not putting my name in the hat. I usually try away from known inks that stain. (Sargasso Sea being my only real exception)

    We HAD a winner, who never showed up to claim his booby prize....

    Calamus, if you are in the CONUS, open up your MP3 and sing for your doom!
