Despite whatever else I say below – I like this ink. I do.
It failed the water test. See?
It’s not really sapphire in color. I realize there are different colored sapphires out in the world, but most people think of them as blue. This is more of a purple – or even a very bright periwinkle. I like all of those colors.
It’s bright. Love that. It’s BOLD. Really love that.
Tiny bit of shading.
Not the driest ink in the land.
And some feathering upon close examination.
So..Pelikan Edelstein isn’t a perfect ink, but I like it. I’m not sure that I’ll get a full bottle of the stuff (this review was from a sample vial), but I like it. No matter its issues.
Have you tried Sapphire? Maybe I need to try it again with another pen/paper.
