Pen of the Day: Pelikan M205 Transparent Blue (Again)

Pelikan M205 blue demonstrator Caran d'Ache Idyllic Blue ink

Pelikan M205 Transparent Blue with fine nib. This was pen of the day fairly recently, but I’m repeating it because it’s got a brand new bag — I mean, ink.  This time I filled it with Caran d’Ache Idyllic Blue, another pure blue. I really like the combination.

I get the feeling that Caran d’Ache inks may not sell very well. They are so expensive in the US that I only buy them on sale, or from Europe. But it can’t just be price: other inks that are even more expensive get a lot of internet buzz. And Caran d’Ache inks fly under the radar.

Sample a few if you want to try something new. They are excellent inks. With great bottles.

  1. Damn, that ink really fits the pen 🙂
    I’ve not yet heard of Idyllic Blue, but now I’ll have to try it out. 🙂 This looks like a great candidate for my favorite blues short-list.
    You’re right, the Caran d’Ache inks seem to be flying a little under the radar. Though they are very well behaved in my opinion. I got a bottle of Caribbean Sea, and it is a wonderful color. Though the bottle is very small 🙂 30ml.
    Know what, I’ll join into the Caran d’Ache love and put up my review of Carribbean Sea now. 🙂
