Today we have received the Pelikan Edelstein Ink of the Year 2019 Star Ruby. 

When it was released we were not really fascinated by its color. But after a 

quick test this has changed. 

 

The Star Ruby ink really is interesting. It offers lots of shading and has the 

potential to vary between light pink and dark burgundy red. Depending on

the ink application on the paper it varies a lot:

This text has been written with a flexibel nib. 

 

Compared to the existing Edelstein Ruby, the Star Ruby offers more variety

in color and the character of the ink is brighter.

We have the ink in store now: https://www.fritz-schimpf.de/Schreibgeraete/Zubehoer/Pelikan-Edelstein-Ink-Collection.html

Thanks for the early photos. Do you know how it compares to the earlier (2012) Edelstein release - Tourmaline?

The Tourmaline ink is more on the pink side. It is less red and more pink. It ranges from light pink to dark pink and is a cooler color. 

 

Please find a comparison below.

Hmmm.  This one is a distinct possibility.  Of course it would be interesting to see a side by side with De Atramentis Dante Alighieri/Ruby Red.

Of course in seeing the comparison photo I'm now really jealous of everyone who owns a bottle of Edelstein Tourmaline....

Thanks for the first peek.  And, well, not.... [Muttering under my breath "you do NOT need more ink...."  :wallbash:]

I'll pick up a bottle, but it's no smoky quartz.

Any ideas if this has any water resistance?  It looks lighter than something like Pilot Iroshizuku Yama Budo but like it might have the shading ability that Yama Budo has. 

 

I do like the color a lot.  I may have to purchase some of this. 


Best always,

Deborah (aka DrPenfection)

Hope to get this color one day. I prefer Blue and Brown. I will have this as my third choice.

Not into pink nor red inks including Garnet....which was too red for garnet....wife loves that stone and had a pile of the stuff.

But I was 'itching' to buy the new Ink of the Year....even going to Pelikan to find out what ink was next.

I have 8 of the 15 colors.

 

It is Spring and I have been ink Pavloved ....you know a scientist stands around with a bell in hand to ring as soon as he sees a dog drool. There is a flower in the yard, time to go drench it with an ink.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.
