Stationery Review 66: Pelikan 4001 Ink Brilliant Red 30ml (ZAR 145/USD 8)

Hi Friends, 

I bought the Pelikan 4001 Fountain Pen Ink from Takealot Online Store where it was listed for ZAR 145 for 30ml bottle in various colours. I bought Brilliant Red coloured ink from them; this is the same review. The Pelikan Brilliant Red ink is very similar to the Lamy T52 Red fountain pen ink.

Pelikan 4001 Inks are made in Germany and this comes in two bottle sizes. We got the 30ml glass bottle which is priced at ZAR 145 on the Takealot website whereas On Applebee Applebee pens and WriteGear WriteGear online stores, it's priced at ZAR 123 only. Also if you go to the Pelikan Pelikan South Africa page some of the inks are priced starting from ZAR 109 onwards. 

Then the whole question comes to the courier charges if you only buy 1 ink, then the overall cost will increase further. So always take into account the minimum purchase amount so that you can get free delivery. 

I am just waiting for some ink pens to get finished and then I can wash them and refill them with this ink. Then I will use this ink in my daily journalling and other daily writings on paper. If any brand wants to send me their products they can contact me via email

Stationery Review 65: Pelikan 4001 Fountain Pen Ink Violet 30ml (ZAR 145/USD 8)

Hi Friends, 

I bought the Pelikan 4001 Fountain Pen Ink from Takealot Online Store where it was listed for ZAR 145 for 30ml bottle in various colours. I purchased Violet coloured ink from them and this is the same review.

After doing the ink swab of this Violet ink, the Karkos Violet is more like a blue ink and this is the most saturated among all the Pelikan 4001 inks. A YouTube viewer even told me that Karkos ink is not violet but at that time I didn't realise it. Thanks to him or her for the comment.

Stationery Review 64: Diamine Fountain Pen Ink Yellow 30ml (ZAR 120/USD 6)

Hi Friends,

Thanks to Sandton Stationery and Print which sells Diamine Fountain Pen Inks and various other brands. They have a huge range of stationery items available for daily and arts and crafts.

Diamine is a UK-based ink manufacturer. They make inks in all colours and have a special edition of inks as well. They have these 30ml ink bottles which they sell in the UK for around GBP 2.60 each whereas the price is almost double in the rest of the countries. Diamine Inkvent Calendar is really popular every year and trades for around ZAR 1800-2500 which has a lot of different variants of inks. 

I got this ink as a gift from Sandton Stationery & Print and I really loved the same. This ink I bought to create some of the other ink colours by mixing Red and Blue inks.

Stationery Review 63: Platinum Preppy (02, 03 and 05) Fountain Pens (USD 5.50/ZAR 100)

Hi Guys,

Check out one of the best fountain pens for beginners that is available for ZAR 99 each in three nib sizes EF, F, and M. You can buy them from Sandton Stationery and Print shop where they have a special installation specifically dedicated to Platinum Preppy along with different ink cartridges and converters. You can buy them online from Applebeepens and Write Gearas well in South Africa. 

These are available in different body colours and there are some special editions also available for ZAR 120 each. You can buy them based on what you like. I felt the Medium one is too thick for my liking and also it's not working perfectly. I need to shake it for the ink to flow and it takes it's own sweet time for the ink to flow. I may need to clean it once and then refill it with some other ink for the feed to work perfectly. 

Stationery Review 63: Platinum Preppy (02, 03 and 05) Fountain Pens (USD 5.50/ZAR 100)

I have fallen in love with the Platinum Preppy 02 and 03 versions as they are perfect in ink and nib size for my liking. They are great starters and write as smoothly as possible in this price range. These are much better than the Amazon Basics Fountain Pen I bought in the same price range. 

If you are travelling to Japan, then you can buy them there as well. Check out these amazing writing instruments for beginners or for your son and daughter.
