    Default KWZ Honey OK in Pelikan 400NN?

    Has anyone used this ink in a vintage Pelikan? I have a 400NN on its way to me, and I think KWZ Honey would be great in it, but I'm always wary of putting inks from newer, smaller companies in potentially delicate pens.

    It will be fine, especially Honey, as it isn't even a saturated colour. I've used KWZ inks in my Pelikan pens.

    There was an issue, iirc, with it in the TWSBI Eco that reacted with the silicone grease and caused the barrel to opaque/scratch as the piston seal went up and down. The last I heard, the silicone formed small crystals from the ink and scratched the inside. I have not heard of this being an issue for any other pen or in any other circumstance in quite a while though. It may have been a fluke occurrance or something Konrad took care of.

    I also have used KWZ inks in vintage pens (including Pelikan, Montblanc, Faber Castell and others), both types, IG and non IG ones without any problems.

    E.g. in this green striated Faber Castell .
