Pelikan Edelstein Garnet Red

Being Pelikan’s Edelstein Ink of the Year 2014, Garnet Red is a rather appealing shade of red with just enough brown in it to make it a rather satisfyingly bloody red with some shading.  It has a tendency to develop an ever so slight darkening towards the edges of one’s writing, making the words stand out with minimal effort. On the whole I do find myself developing a personal bias towards this, and it would have wound up on my daily rotation were it not for my penchant for waterproofing in my inks. As can be seen in the test, it will most definitely not withstand a soaking.
