Pelikan 4001 is the core ink range from this lauded German manufacturer and was first introduced in 1898. It is one of the most reliable and well-behaved inks available and is our pick at Bookbinders Design for a no-nonsense ink that is safe in pens new and old.
Pelikan 4001 Fount India is a document proof black ink that, trust me, is safe for use in fountain pens. But yes, this is the only "India Ink" I will be recommending to my fountain friends.
Available in a 30ml glass bottle, Pelikan 4001 is the definition of bang-for-your-buck.
