I received an email from Fahrney's Pens advertising new Edelstein long catridges. Upon checking the Fahrney's site, http://www.fahrneysp...campaign=140710, I found the option for Edelstein Sapphire Blue. Since I had purchased a lot of Parker Penman Blue Sapphire ink before it became impossible to find and since I have been using Private Reserve American Blue catridges for the travel needs of my pens taking international size cartridges, I have not tried Edelstein Sapphire Blue ink; having a lot of Parker Penman Blue Sapphire ink, I have not needed to buy bottled ink. Since the picture of an ink blob on the Fahrney's site looked promising in regard to color, I wanted to ask how the Edelstein Sapphire Blue ink compares in color to my beloved Parker Penman Blue Sapphire and my substitute Private Reserve American Blue.

Has anyone used each of these inks? If so, how do they compare in color? In particular, how does the color of Edelstein Sapphrie Blue compare to the rich deep color of Parker Penman Blue Sapphrire?

Thanks! : )

The Pelikan Sapphire Blue is nowhere near the deep color of the Private Reserve American Blue. It's a lot more like Pilot Iroshizuku Ajisai in that it can be a little watery-looking compared to something like Kon-Peki. I would recommend that you try the Goulet's comparison tool to at least look at the swabs for PR American Blue and the Pelikan ink. 

 

I hope this helps.

Edelstein Sapphire is a lighter blue and very, very close to J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir.

Thank you for suggesting the Goulet comparison tool! That helped a great deal. You are right, the Edelstein Sapphire is watery-looking and definitely not a deep blue.
