Pelikan Edelstein Ink Now Available09/16/2010
Art Brown is now shipping the new Edelstein Ink from Pelikan. At $20 per bottle it certainly qualifies as a premium product. Below is a piece from the announcement that explains what makes this ink special. Of course the ‘flacon’ (fancy word for bottle) is unique, too.
The Edelstein Premium Ink Collection is comprised of seven brilliant colors with a special ingredient to ensure extra smooth writing and high-performance care for your fountain pen.
UPDATE: 9/17/2010 @ 16:51 PDT – Although unconfirmed it appears that Art Brown is not yet shipping Edelstein Ink. Unfortunately, the store closed today before I knew there was an issue. If this is accurate, Art Brown should have placed a banner or other caveat stating the ink would be available soon rather than allowing customers to think it was in inventory.
From some of the comments here as well as info gathered from other sources, the ink should be available from retailers quite soon, perhaps in just a matter of days. Check your usual ink dealer for availability. Maybe you can even find a few additional items to order with your Edelstein. A pretty demo (clear) pen might be just the thing to show off your new jewel-toned ink.
