    Default Pelikan Blue-Black now available in the US

    Just received an email that for a very short time, Anderson Pens have a stock of the very hard to find Pelikan Blue-Black available. It is a mild IG ink, dry, but performs wonderfully in most fountain pens. And the price is reasonable, compared with shipping from overseas.

    As usual, I am NOT affiliated with Anderson pens or receive any goodies from them.

    All the Best.

    Anderson Pens are great people, I love visiting their Chicago store when I'm in town
    I'm not affiliated either, but just a customer of their service and friendliness

    Just happened to notice today that Amazon US has Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black 60ml for $13.90 with free two-day delivery for Prime members. Also, 30ml for $7.99 currently showing a 3-day delivery with Prime. I try to support pen shops whenever possible, but this ink can be hard to source in the US at times so I thought I'd let folks know. No affiliation with Amazon, just someone who likes this ink.

    I bought a bottle on Amazon a couple of years ago. It was sold by a Japanese seller and shipped from Japan. Amazon has a lot of sellers that go through Amazon but aren't really a part of it, and Amazon does a so-so job at best of keeping an eye on them.

    Just found this article on The Pelikan's Perch: "Pelikan 4001 Blue-Black Returns To North America".

    https://thepelikansperch.com/2023/08...ck/#more-17782

    Seems the issue of 4001 Blue-Black's non-compliance with US law has been revisited and the ink has been found to be legal for sale in the US after all. Go figure. Anyway, according to the article, the ink will now be available from US retailers in 30mL and 62.5mL bottles as well as long and short international cartridges. So good news for all US lovers of this ink.
