Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine

 

20150529_100935_zpsnptk5ylt.jpg

 

 

Dear FPN friends.

 

This is my first review of a Pelikan Edelstein ink. I am a Pelkian Fan of both the inks and the pens.

 

The Edelstein ink is a case of Pimp-my-Ink....  What is that??? Well there are certain Companies that produce several line of inks. They every now and then put a special line of inks on the market. For example

 

 

  • Faber Castell vs Graf von Faber Castell
  • Pelikan 4001 vs Pelikan Edelstein
  • Ink of the year etc... Like J Herbin's

 

What are the differences

 

  • Fancy packiging
  • (slightly) changed recipe
  • other colours
  • more saturation
  • and of course a HIGHER PRICE

Not every point will be aplicable on any ink but just to give you an Idea of the possibilities

 

Pelikan Edelstein Aventurine

 

This is an example of a Pimp-my-Ink ink. The ink comes in a beautiful bottle for €13,95 at La Couronne du Comte

 

Generally I can say that the ink behaves very well like all the Pelikans I have tested so far

 

Scan_Pic0004_zpshkpvco0h.jpg

Handwritten sample on Clairefontaine Veloutè 90 gr.

 

 

 

Shading is visible here but not  expressed this strong in all my handwritten texts

 

 

 

Avetnurine%20Inkvomit%20FPN_zpstnigheg4.

Ink vomitus

 

 

Pelikan%20Aventurine%20blow%20my%20nose%

Blow my nose with ink

 

The Colour I woud call a medium dark green. Darkness depends on the nib. The ink is lighter in a finer nib

 

Shading is little to medium dependent  on nib and paper. Therefore the ink sinicerely saturated

 

Aventurine%20pick%20and%20gradient_zps69

 

Adventurous Green it is.... Jungle Joy :) 

 

Ink Behaviour

 

As mentioned before this ink too behave very well. On the sheet down here I forgot to mention the drying tim... QUICK 5 seconds in F nib

 

Pelikan%20Aventurine%20samplesheet%20fpn

 

 

Waterproof

 

This ink is not waterproof at all. This is not a probem the ink was not meant to be permanent Down here is the result of my usual Jacques Cousteau DIving Experience fo Inks

 

Pelikan%20Aventurinn%20Waterproof_zpstto

 

This is the result after only one minute at 20000 leagues under the kitchen sink....

But it will survive a small drop.... Just be careful (and do not stick it in your bathing pants) :)

 

Colour comparison

 

 

Pelikan%20Aventurine%20Comp%20FPN_zpsohk

 

The Aventurine is darker than the Brilliant Green which is more er... brilliant.  The ifference is not that big though. I think it is a nice colour to rotate.

 

I havepublishe an extensive comparison of these two Pelikan inksin the Ink cmparison forum... Here is a link

http://www.fountainp...rilliant-green/

 

 

Availability

This is one of those inks that is even avaiLable on the moon, simply hijack a passing space craft.... But since you and I most probably will not get to the moon that often at least I don't)...

 

I will give you some adresses here

 

La Couronne du Comte I guess  Dennis and Rik would even travel to the moon to get it for you (just pay them a million or 2  :))  Well it is safe to say that they do almost everything to satisfy their customers http://www.lacouronneducomte

 

Bankers have Rothshield Ink lovers have The Goulet Pen Company. Rachel and Brian carry theALMOST largest assortiment of ink on earth and it's near surroundings  :)  http://www.gouletpens.com

 

(almost Dear Amberlea Davis carries the largest assoritment in the universe but is not a seller  :D

 

To Conclude

Pelikan did a nice job on this ink.... Nice colour, beautiful bottle, well behaving and the  price is not too expensive (in my opinion). Edelstein ink costs € 0,28 per ml. vs € 0,9 for a Pelikan 4001 ink.

 

Is the Pelikan Edelstein  ink that much better than Pelikan 4001?

 

In my opinion not....

 

Wiil this keep me from buing other Edelstein inks..

... DEFINATELY NOT :excl:  :)

 

Regards

 

Peter

Good review of my favourite ink collection Peter.  You forgot to add: the ink doesn't pong, washes out of the pen easily with just water and doesn't leave residue behind, doesn't bleed across the nib (Noodler Turquoise - I'm looking at you!) and works well in all fountain pens.

Thanks! I have enjoyed the review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Very nice review!  I've been looking for a good green and this certainly has potential.

Thanks for the informative review!

This was the first ink and colour that I purchased.... I wanted something that was a good rich green but not too bright, and reading this review from someone in the know (i.e. someone who has been in the fp world way longer than the 6 days I've been addicted) gives me reassurance that the ink I've chosen is of decent quality.

This would be my very favorite green ink, and almost perfectly behaved, except -- for me -- the dry time is a bit too long, and as a lefty, that's a problem.  But it is a wonderful, bright, clear green and if I'm writing just for myself, sometimes smears be da*****, it's simply worth it. Lovely ink indeed, and great review.
