  1. Today I'm reviewing Pelikan Edelstein Olivine ink - Pelikan Edelstein Ink of the Year 2018 Pelikan Edelstein Olivine is a dark green dye based ink, that leans quite blue. It could be used as a standard daily green ink. I agree with other reviewers when they say it isn't necessarily the Olivine shade we were expecting, and I wish it had been less blue and more yellow, but as it is, it's still a very nice ink to use. I find all of the Edelstein inks I've tried to be very nicely lubricated inks that flow very well across the page. I had no flow problems with Olivine. No difficult starts or skips. I found it flowed very well in the pens I used it with and I saw plenty of shading particularly with broader nibs. It looked more saturated with my Pelikan Go! B nib. Lubrication was good enough, and it felt smooth writing across some of the papers I used. Flow Rate: Very good. A little slow to dry.Lubrication: Good.Nib Dry-out: Not noticed.Start-up: Immediate.Saturation: A saturated ink.Shading Potential: Some shading seen.Sheen: None seen.Show-Through:Apica PaperTomoe River 52gsmSilvine lined padOxford lined padField NotesRoyal recycledHobonichi TechoSpread / Feathering / Woolly Line: Not seen.Nib Creep / Crud: Not seen, even after over 1 week in the penStaining (pen): Not seen after several days in the pen - easy clean-up with water.Staining (hands): Clean-up needs at least 2 washes with bar soap.Clogging: Not seen. Seems unlikely.Water resistance: Not sold as waterproof and has little water resistance.Availability: Available in 50ml glass bottles from many outlets.
  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.
