This is my first ink review with actual writing sample! I have read many reviews on Pelikan Edelstein series and not many people are too impressed with the ink. Some said the color is not saturated enough, some said that the price of the ink does not match with its quality. In contrast, my impression of the ink is favorable. It has a nice purple undertone, which makes it stand out on white paper. The flow is very smooth, and it is not as finicky as Noodler Baystate blue when it comes to paper choice.
