Was just at Pelikan's site where they're trumpeting this year's Ink of the Year, Olivine. I believe the new color has been known for a while but this makes it official.

It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

I saw something on their instagram feed about a month ago. Looking at it again just now it was January 12th. They said it would be available in March in the comments. Someone asked specifically about a matching M200 and was basically shut down. So no confirmation of that. Around that time, Sarge Talon on thepelikansperch.com had something about it.

The ink looks quite interesting.  I find I really like yellow leaning greens (as opposed to the blue leaning ones).

Would have to try a sample of it before being a full bottle of course, to find out how close it is to greens I already have.

While I'm generally not big on golden greens, I have to say that the splash under the bottle does look nice, more dark green than overtly golden. But do I really need another dark green? I'll wait on the reviews to get a better look and maybe order cartridges.

I will be in the queue outside the ink shop. Possibly the day before. With sleeping bag.


I like green. I like grey green even better.

It's all about the greys...

I have every LE Edelstein since Garnet so will be getting at least one bottle of this one too. I wish I had the ones bef Garnet but didn't know abt them at the time. I am using Sapphire right now in my Pelikan Toledo 910. I received 2 new Pelikan pens in the mail yesterday so I need the new color.
