I always have a weak spot for Pelikan Edelstein that cannot be rationalized. Whenever the news of a new Edelstein release will make my heart skip a beat. Edelstein is my kryptonite, so to speak. The ink exhibited a spectrum from light yellow to dark Manuka honey color. Some have commented that for an expensive ink, Edelstein is disappointingly unsaturated. The way I look at it is the great shading quality would become less apparent, if the ink has high saturation.
