Hey Guys, i wonder what are most popular colors of Pelikan Edelstein these days.

Got the chance to try out the Pelikan Edelstein Aquamarine, love the colour, thought i would ask which colors of Edelstein do you buy more frequently.

Thanks!

Amber. That's not on the list, presumably because it was a LE. Still, that's the one I bought most often, just as a present to other Edelstein freaks.

Well, I only have a few colors. And only one bottle of each. Technically, I also have a tin of cartridges of Amethyst, but I don't have too many pens that take International Standard cartridges. And the only reason I have Aquamarine is because it (like the tin of Amethyst cartridges) was swag from a Pelikan Hub. The Aquamarine is better than I expected, but not a color I use much. I did buy a bottle of Amethyst, and one of Tanzanite. I need to check my stash (I'm not at home at the moment, but waiting for car repairs, which is apparently going to take several HOURS :angry: and which should of which gotten caught -- and FIXED -- last week; and I'm not really buying the "Oh, the same idiot light came on for a DIFFERENT problem this time..." BS). My notes list me having a bottle of Topaz, but I don't remember actually buying one :huh: (just thinking I really *should*...).

These are LE so are not much on the buy again when one has a slew of inks. Amethyst in cartridges in I missed the bottle. Aquamirine in cartridges and in the bottle. Cartidges in I thought I might have missed the bottle.

Tanzanite I have it but never used it.

 

I like Topaz most. I will order a second bottle....if and when I finally use it. I have over 50 inks.

 

Aventurine feathers. :(

 

Jade is a bit blaaa.

No one liked Sapphire in they were waiting for the second coming of Parker Penmann. In I wasn't into blue at the time...I didn't buy any.

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.

I only use Mandarin... When I realized the bottle was half empty I rushed to get another one... Only to find they'd changed the formula :crybaby: .

I had never been able to use green inks; may be I like the colour I buy it and I use it for a couple of weeks but I get tired quickly... until I tried Aquamarine. I love it. So I bought several bottles fearing it would be discontinued after 2016. Nevertheless, I've heard Pelikan will add this colour to the regular catalogue and will continue producing it; anybody knows anything about it?

I know nothing of it sticking around, as a regular issue. Others have come and gone like Amethyst. :angry: All I got from that is 3 six packs.

 

I like Topaz most.

:o Have I tried my bottle of Aquamarine?????? *****.................I shook my six pack tin, and it's empty enough to rattle, so I had used Aquamarine.

And I'm off to buy a bottle of Smoky Quartz..... :rolleyes:

 

I am over where I shouldn't be...here.....seeing inks I have, inks I don't.

....going to buy 3 Kaweco shading inks too, when I get to my B&W.

Sigh....could be a sheen ink from Diamine also....now that's a lot of ink to dither about.

 

**** I am striving to get down to 5-6 pens inked...to use more ink, instead of 17....down to 11. :( Some 'new' old ink (MB Diamond) got me from 10 to 11.

I had to start using that in I have 1 1/2 bottles of it and no desire to take the QE2 anywhere.

Some of the 'Buy Now' prices could have me here asking what is a substituent for certain older LE inks.

Whatever you like/love stock up

None of these inks brands/colors are going to be around forever

Think MB's Racing Green

They are all LEs. Some a little more limited than others

Only a few have been granted eternal life, eg, Waterman, Parker Quink

Bought Aquamarine. Very similar to Diamine Eau de Nil but, to me, lacking the magic.

 

I also have Tanzanite and will definitely replace it when the bottle is finally empty.

There should be an option for "Limited Editions" since that's all I buy from Pelikan/Edelstein (in terms of inks).

Topaz is the only ink in the regular lineup that speaks to me. I'd probably like Mandarin if I didn't already have Sailor Apricot and Fuyu-gaki already. Otherwise, I would have chosen Garnet and Amethyst, which (to my sadness) are LE.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
