  1. Following my review for Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine, this is my review of another newly released Pelikan ink from the 4001 range: Pelikan Dark Green. I find it a dark green with slight blue undertones. Certainly not a teal like Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine. More like the colour of Pine tree needles. It reminded me of Montblanc White Forest as soon as I wrote with it, and sure enough it is very similar to that very nice but no longer available 'Seasons greetings' ink. So if you have a hankering for Montblanc White Forest, then Pelikan Dark Green will make a good substitute for it. I found this a slightly drier ink than the Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine, and it dried on my thick, smooth paper in about half of the time. However, it still flowed well enough in my pens to look quite a bit darker when I used broader nibs. It shows some shading and is saturated. It stained my fingers for a while, and that tends to be the case with these dark green/blue inks. I forgot all about the water test so the ink was covered in water for about 20minutes. I can clearly see there are dark grey/black remains. So it has good water resistance. I like dark blue-greens like this, so it gets a thumbs up from me.
  2. Today I'm reviewing the latest Pelikan Edelstein ink Aquamarine I must admit I thought it would be a lighter shade than it is. It's a well saturated blue-green teal ink. I found it quite wet because I could see each line of writing still glistening as I wrote the next line, and I found that it took longer to dry on my 100gsm paper than several other inks I've tried lately. I really like the colour though, and I found it beautifully smooth in the 3 pens that I filled with it. I had no problems with any dry out or hard starts while I left the caps off the pens so that I could do the swabs and comparisons. I am aware that it is a similar colour to Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-jaku, but I no longer have that ink. Instead I compared it with Pilot Iroshizuku Syo-ro, which is more green. It's water resistance is very good. I'm sure it will be a really popular colour like the previous Inks of the Year have been. Thanks to my OH for pressing the camera remote while I operated the piston of the pen.
