Review: Pelikan Brilliant Green Ink

Manufacturer: Pelikan | List Price: $12.99 | Buy from Amazon

This is a review long overdue, since I actually got this ink way back in July 2012 in Singapore. For a mere S$4, it was a no-brainer, since here in Canada ink bottles are at least double that. It’s not a particularly outstanding colour, but works well enough for most purposes and holds up generally well even on the cheapest of paper.

Pelikan Brilliant GreenThe text, in case you can’t read it, says: ‘A simple, somewhat bluish green. Although I do not quite like the colour as much as Diamine Meadow, it works well in a Lamy Safari on cheap paper.’ As always, the paper used in standard 20lb Staples copy paper. Both swabs (water and ink) were done three times. As you can see, the ink is fairly watery and light, and does not hold up too well under the water smear.

Hope you enjoyed the review! We definitely plan on trying out more inks in the future. As well, I unfortunately lost my Lamy Safari last week (my experience in review form is here). I’m currently waiting on a new pen in the post and will do a review on that once I experience it enough!
