Oh Lord, won't you buyme a Mercedes Benz. My friends all drive 'Vettes,I must make amends...



Good-old Scott Joplin - how I miss him.

But Cap'n, my friend, we aren't really already 96, are we?

A tad younger. Essence of Spire helps of course. With some Jarl on the old Cornflakes, every now and again.

You mean that Jarl is more than 3.6%? Please elaborate on this before I inadvertently buy something insufficient...

However unmodest of me, I think you should move to Germnany. Russia or Finnland would be going too far...

I bet that Paco Rabanne guy isn't man-enough to have "some Jarl on the old Cornflakes, every now and again" or to write with Pelikan Edelstein Amber in his Pelikan Tortoise M800.

At the LV Pen Posse meeting today, we played with this ink....loaded it up into a Pelikan BBB that was modified by John Mottishaw.

Be sure to look at the images on my website to avoid the compression issues.

A very nice review! I only have on Edelstein ink, the Topaz, which I like a lot. But, these bottles are so beautiful. Wow.

The man whose pens I fondle the most often said this topic was a little "off color".

We did discuss that naughty innuendos are not on the no-no list. No ink bashing, no brand bashing, no politics and no religion..... that leaves sex, ink, pens and paper......

A really nice lady sent me a sample of the new Edelstein Amber which is thus far not available in the US. I had been anxiously waiting to try this ink, so I was thrilled to receive this super kind gift. At the risk of dragging this thread back on track, I’ll share my reaction.

Step 1: get out the Herbin glass dip pen and compare the color to some browns I already have

Posted Image

Step 2: clean my recently arrived Pelikan M800 Tortoise in preparation for a bigger trial run

Posted Image

Step 3: write down my reaction to the ink

Posted Image

The sample above is pretty close to what I see on paper. The ink on paper appears a bit brighter to me, but the color looks close.

Thanks again, nice lady!

Excellent writing. And now for the bad news... I think this ink is un-nice because it seems to be forcing me to buy an M800 tortoise...
