Pelikan M400 White Tortoise with medium nib. I feel like this is the Kevin Bacon or Kevin Hart of writing instruments for me. I seem to make it Pen of the Day a lot. And for good reason. For a pen I long hesitated to buy, I like it very much.
This time, though, I was mostly focused on the ink. My friend was talking about Pelikan Edelstein Amber, so I wanted to dip into my sample. You’d think this would be a perfect ink for one my five yellow Safaris, wouldn’t you? Yes, that would be sensible. But moving along ….
Pelikan Edelstein Amber is a nice ink. I find it similar to J. Herbin Ambre de Birmanie, which I also really like. Edelstein Amber is a touch darker and drier; and for me it does not shade quite as much. Amber is also a past ink of the year, so harder to find. But lovely.
