Pelikan was established in 1838 in Hannover Germany as a manufacturer of artists inks. It is therefore no surprise their range of inks and refills are some of the best on the market. The Edelstein collection, meaning gem in German, has a special ingredient ensuring extra smooth writing and care for your fountain pen. Ink bottles come in an elegant glass bottle, and ink cartridges in an attractive metal tin. Pelikan ballpoint and rollerball refills are also available for all sizes of pens.
