Today let’s take a look at Pelikan Edelstein Jade. I purchased my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet.
Jade isn’t quite green, not quite teal, somewhere in the middle. It’s a gorgeous color.
In large swabs there is some pretty shading and just a little bit of sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was a little bit of feathering, and a little bit of bleeding in the larger nib sizes.
Jade is a really close match to Diamine Cool Green. Click here to see the Pelikan inks together.
Overall, it’s a really nice ink. I wish the flow was a little bit wetter. Diamine Cool Green is a really close match for the color.
