Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine (Ink of the Year 2016)


Hey folks! This ink was distributed at the Pelikan Hub event earlier in the Fall this year. I was really looking forward to it, but it turns out that I don't love it. The color is a little flat, it runs a little dry, and it just doesn't feel all that great on the nib. It's one that I think I'd skip unless I were a completionist about Pelikan inks.

I think both Iroshizuku Ku-Jaku and Sailor Yama-Dori are better inks in this range. Or Sheaffer Turquoise or Lamy Turquoise. There's too much competition in this color range to settle for  mediocre performance.

 Not terrible performance, but not great, either.
