Hey all,
How does Pelikan Edelstein ink (cartridges, specifically) compare to Iroshizuku in terms of each brand's purple ink?

I haven't tried Iroshizuku Murasaki-Shikibu, but I like both Iroshizuku Yama-budo and Edelstein Amethyst LE.  Yama-budo is a little more magenta-toned, while Amethyst is a bit more water resistant.  (Dry times on bad paper are about the same).

I think if you're asking about properties, the Iroshizuku inks tend to run a little wetter in general than the Edelstein inks.
