Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire Ink / Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire Mürekkep

Scroll down to read in English

Sapphire, Pelikan'ın Edelstein serisinden güzel, klasik, siyah ve mavi dışına çıkmaktan korkan ama yeni mürekkep arayanlar için gayet uygun renk bir mürekkep Edelstein Sapphire, J. Herbin Blue Myosotis, derken bir bakmışsınız imzanızı pembe mürekkeple atıyorsunuz, ne dersiniz güzel olmaz mı?

Sapphire mürekkebi ilk gördüğümde, "İşte aradığım mürekkep" demiştim. Çünkü bir süredir, görenleri mor mu, mavi mi olduğu konusunda tartışmaya itecek bir mürekkep arıyordum. Ama alıp kullanmaya başladığımda, hayal kırıklığına uğradım, çünkü Sapphire sadece açık ve canlı bir mavi gibi duruyordu. Ama bir süre yazdığımda, ki "eyedropper" Wality 69'un neredeyse tank kadar olan haznesindeki mürekkebi bitirine kadar yazdım ve şaşırtıcı şekilde mürekkebi sevmeye başladım. Niye sevdiğimi açıklamak zor ama, bu aslında standart 4001 mavisinden farklı, güzel bir mavi.  



Daha sonra, Sapphire incelemesi yapmak üzere masanın başına oturduğumda, Moleskine defter ve Lamy Safari Medium uç ile tamamen farklı bir sonuca ulaştığımı fark ettim. Bu sanki, benim iki-üç gün önce Wality 69 Oblique kalın uçla (ki oldukça ıslak bir dolmakalem) sayfalar dolusu yazdığım mürekkep değildi.  Aslında, benim mürekkep incelemelerimi aynı kalem ve kağıt üzerinde yapmamın temel sebebi de bu. Zira, mürekkebin kağıttaki duruşu hem kalemden, hem de kağıdın kendisinden etkileniyor. Bu nedenle size, Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire mürekkebin farklı kalemlerde nasıl değişik bir karakter sergilediğini göstermek için aşağıdaki fotoğrafı da ekliyorum. Belki de benim bu mürekkebi sevmemin sebebi, gösterdiği bu farklı karakterler. Aşağıda, Wality 69 Oblique uçla ve Sapphire ile yazılmış bir yazı örneği mevcut. Bu fotoğrafı daha önce Instagram'da paylaşmıştım. (Beni instagramdan takip etmek isterseniz, kullanıcı adım writetomeoften) Böylelikle, Medium uçla, kalın Oblique uç arasında, mürekkebin nasıl karakter değiştirdiğini görebilirsiniz.

Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire is a nice color and very suitable for someone who afraid using new inks other than black or blue and still want to try something new. Using Edelstein Sapphire, then J. Herbin Blue Myosotis and voila! You start writing with a bright pink, wouldn't it be nice?


When I first saw the swatches of Sapphire, I said "That's my girl" since I was looking for an ink, which people can argue on it whether it is blue or purple. However, when I start using it, I was a bit disappointed since it was just a vibrant color variety of blue. Then, after a while (after I spend whole ink in an eyedropper Wality 69, it is like a gallon!!!), I did liked it. It is hard to express maybe, but it is a blue ink, yet different from regular 4001 blue.

After that, I wanted to make a Sapphire review, but the results on Moleskine paper with Lamy Safari Medium was quite surprising. It was not the ink I used two-three days ago with Wality 69 Oblique, which is quite a wet writing fountain pen. Actually, that was the reason why I choose to make all ink reviews in same paper and pen to set a standard. But I wanted to demonstrate you how Pelikan Edelstein Sapphire acts differently in different pens. Maybe this is the reason why I liked this ink so much! Here you can find a photo of my handwriting with Wality 69 Oblique Nib. I shared this photo on Instagram before. (By the way, if you would like to follow me, my username is writetomeoften) So you can spot how the ink changes its character between a Medium and a Broad Oblique nib. 

Sincerely,

  1. While I was looking for a blue that would not dry to a grayish blue, Edelstein Sapphire was one of my choices. I forgot why I did not go with it. It will definitely remain high on my list for future purchase.
    IMHO, Sapphire looks the best on Rhodia paper. The purplish blue complements the grid or dot well.

    1. In Turkey we don't have any Iroshizuku ink dealer so we have to order online in which we have some restraints. Besides, Iroshizuku is more expensive than Edelstein (maybe it is different in US or Japan) So get the Edelsteins. I only have ink samples of Iroshizuku :)

      But even though I liked this color, it is not the ink I was looking for. As I mentioned "an ink that people can argue over if it is blue or purple" I still love Sapphire. It is really vivid. Has some hints of purple in it.

      I have a Rhodia notebook but it is more like a block-note. So I am not a fan of it. But I will definitely try!

    2. Iroshizuku is definitely more expensive than Edelstein, thus explained why I only have Edelstein and still sitting on Iroshizuku :)

      I actually don't know what kind of blue I am looking for anymore. I love the color of Noodler's Bay State Blue, but it is known for being a finicky ink. I like Caran d'Ache's Blue Sky, but it is also on the more expensive side, price per ml wise. At the end, I just settle on Pelikan's Royal Blue. Good value for everyday use, and very easy going as well.

    3. Edelstein is nice, but yet it bears the fact that it is a German brand and German design. I think you understand what I feel. Iroshizuku is something different with colors, color names, bottle and everything.

      For the blue inks, you may check the link, I will definitely try to arrange if you like any of the inks.

    4. Edelstein is definitely very German in its whole package. Iroshizuku is really aiming for the whole package, from its naming convention to bottle design, but I am still a bit hesistant about it. Just something undescribable that I am unsure about. Is there a specific color in the Iroshizuku line you are interested?

    5. Sometimes, people get that feeling that you cannot express it still something repels...

      Actually, my specific colors are always changing from one to other. Once it was greens, then became purples and then greys... So nothing in particular. So I get a sample package from Goulet Pens and since they are too small in size, I still couldn't use them :)

      Delete
    6. So far, I really like Iroshizuku's Kuja-ku and Murasaki, but my goal is to look for similar colors in different brands. Now I am just making my life harder than it is :p
      Should you ever be interested in any inks I have, I will be glad to send you samples. Goulet's ink samples are great, but the amount could be too little to determine your feeling about the ink.

      Delete
    7. Murasaki looks great. From greens my favorite is ina-ho. Actually, yesterday I found some miniature perfume bottles at home and the idea popped up in my mind to save them for ink samples. I have Aniki inks (Yuki's garden, Amazonas, memories, royal blue, old days, lycian rose and Lymira) just let me know, if you want to try any of them.

    8. I was looking at Aniki inks and the color selection was stunning! I am also curious about the properties of their inks, since they are all waterproof (Is it safe to assume that they are iron gall?) How do they compare to Scabiosa, another waterproof ink? In my experience, iron gall ink is a bit drier than other inks, comparatively.

      Delete
    9. No they are not iron gal, you can use them safely in your fountain pens. Actually they are lubricated with some ingredients which protects the piston mechanism of your fountain pen. Another thing about Aniki inks are; they are not evaporative inks but absorb type. It means, it is not faded or washed away when it dries.

      Delete
    10. That sounds like a wonderful ink! Scabiosa, in fact, is an iron gall (not in the 18th-century sense, where ink can corrode a pen's filling system), but it requires constantly flushing when the pen will not be in prolonged use. I assume that Aniki ink is a Turkish ink?

      Delete
    11. Aniki is a Turkish ink made by an engineer who is a fan and expert of fountain pens. You can check his blog yazmakkeyiftir.blogspot.com He writes in Turkish and (English and French) sometimes so you may read some of the posts. Aniki is better than most of the inks in the market.

    12. thanks for the information! I will check out the site.

    13. Just let me know the color. I will be more than glad to send you a sample.

  2. I love how it looks on the Moleskine, perfect periwinkle :) Maybe it goes lighter on the finer nib because there's less ink coming down, or maybe the paper is less absorbent? I have read so many mixed reviews about the Moleskine paper and fp ink, it's odd it looks better on it.

    Great review, thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thank you Estivalia!

      The nib size and paper really affects the ink therefore I am trying to use same paper (Moleskine) and pen (Lamy Safari or Al-Star Medium) so that people can compare the results. American bloggers are generally using Rhodia but it is not widely available in the rest of the world. That's why I decided on Moleskine.

      I have all Edelstein colors, please tell me if you would like to see the review of a particular color.

      Cheers!

    2. I use Rhodia too, but only because I stumbled upon them on a random chain of art supply stores. If you'd like I can get you a small pad for you to use on your reviews :D

    3. Thank you for your offer Estivalia. I am really glad that I have this blog since I knew you and Shangching. I have Rhodia but they are not very common in Turkey. That's why I don't use them in my reviews.

    1. Ben görgüsüz gibi tüm renkleri aldığım için istediğin, merak ettiğin diğer renkler varsa onları da getirebilirim. Hatta ufak şişen varsa, sample olarak da verebilirim bir miktar. Yeni zirve ne zaman?

      Delete
  4. Yeni zirve bu perşembe. 30 Ağustos'u mürekkeple kutlayacağız:)Kesinleşince konuşuruz yine.
    Mandarin'i merak ediyorum Zeynep'ciğim, zahmet olmazsa getirirsin bir deneriz.
    Karşılaştırmalı bir yazı da istiyoruz Edelstein için:)

  6. Favori mürekkeplerimden biri, bu aralar kendisini Aurora Blue ile aldatmama rağmen, ince uçlu kalemlerle verdiği mora yakın tonu özlemiyor değilim.
