Pelikan M400 Black/Green Striated, M250 14K 0.7mm CI, inked with Pelikan Edelstein Olivine (Ink of Year 2018)

The classic Pelikan - Black/Green Striated pattern in the M400 size. Large enough to be used without posting, small enough to fit in the shirt pocket.


One of my all time favourite nibs - A Richard Binder custom grind M250 14K 0.7mm cursive italic. Great line variation but smooth enough to use for everyday writing.


The latest addition to the Ink of the year release by Pelikan - Edelstein Olivine. 


The mineral after which this ink is named varies from yellow-green to mid-green. This ink is a dark green with olive touches. It shades pretty well from the cursive italic, but the sample shows no sheen whatsoever. This is an OK ink in my opinion but not one I will rave about.
