Pelikan – 4001 Violet

I have to say, I’m not sure how to define “violet”.  The Pelikan 4001 Violet isn’t the violet color I had in mind (mine is more like Papier Plume Violet, slightly more blue)

Anyway.  This is a nice purple, somehow similar to KWZ Berry but on the red side (so this means I can get this color with mixing of Papier Plume Violet and KWZ Berry? lol)  Short drying time (and I think this is caused by dipping pen), pretty good saturation with not so much shading, no water resistant as normal and the ink flow is pretty good.  4001 is one of the oldest ink line from Pelikan that the formula was old – hence more natural and should cause less harm to the pen (the India ink they newly released even has some warning on the box)

CP value: 85/100, considering the availability and the price in TW
