Pelikan Edelstein Topaz Ink

This ink is a lot brighter than inks I gravitate toward (Monteverde DC Supershow Blue, Horizon Blue Noodlers Blue, etc.) I was willing to try it out to change up my usual preferences. I used this ink in my Pineider La Grande Belleza, and it is wonderful. The ink is nice and wet, flows without interruption, and remains very stable. It is bright blue with a hint of marine blue, at least that is what it looks to me. There is no sheening, feathering, or bleed through on my college rules notebook paper that I use often, so I am impressed. I would recommend if you are willing to pay for a higher priced, stable brighter blue ink.

Best of the Edelstein

This Topaz Edelstein ink flows the best of the ones I have used. The color is close to Pilot Kon Peki. It is beautiful. It is slightly drier than Pilot ink.

My flex nibs can't stop doing the happy dance!

When your flex nib was a baby, it dreamed that it would one day be filled with this ink. Your friends, family, lovers will sit up and take notice when you write letters to them with this ink. It is what other inks aspire to. Yes, it's expensive but this one is actually worth it!!! Shading like you've never dreamed possible. My favorite flex nibs can't stop happy dancing, neither can I. Yup, it is THAT good...and I don't even LIKE turquoise ink... but I LOVE TOPAZ! All that and a side of chips too. Trust me, go straight to the bottle. You can thank me later.

Take My Money

This is a pricey bottle of ink, but it's definitely worth buying. Pelikan's Edelstein Topaz is such a beautiful shade of blue; I love it. This is also a good ink, performance-wise.

Absolutely amazing ink!

I have been using this ink for over a month. I have used it in a TWSBI 580, Conklin Duragraph, and Sailor 1911 Realo. Pelikan Edelstein ink is one of my favorites because it is very very smooth. I am a blue ink type of person and this definitely is in the middle blue range for me. It is modestly bright but not towards the turquoise colors. I would say that it is a pure blue. I was expecting it to be a shade darker but, I am very please with this color ink.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
