INK REVIEW: Pelikan Edelstein - Onyx

Nice!  This ink had great flow from the pen. It was such a pleasure to write with. I wonder how much of that was the pen? (Watch for more on this topic in a future post.)

I little smearing, but I work around that fairly well - even for a lefty.

Nice color. Not as "solid" as some.

But here's the issue. The major stinkin' issue ...

The way I look at water tests - I don't expect all of my inks to do well when they meet water. I know they won't. But . . . I do expect better performance from an average black - probably becuase I know it's possible to make black with great stability.

I'm so glad I only bought the sample of this ink and not the full-size bottle.  Bummer.

Do you have rules like my black-must-do-well-with-water rule?
