A Chartres blue near match!
If you are searching for the perfect blue ink to complement your Chartres blue Platinum Century pen, look no further. This is it. I feared that this ink might be a bit too purplish, but to my eyes the pen and ink are a perfect match. It is a bright, exciting but still tasteful blue. I had heard that Pelican inks tend to be more dry, but it is very well behaved with a soft fine nib, no railroading, and very reasonable drying times. It is pure pleasure to use, I will definitely investigate more Edelstein inks!
