A bottle of ink is no longer just a product but now an experience, complete with a beginning, middle, and end. Pelikan’s Edelstein Ink Collection fully embraces this truth, inspired by the world’s most enchanting gemstones.
At first glace, you only see the box. The simple design catches your eye and you’re drawn in, intrigued at what lies within. Then you lift the lid, gently pulling her out and marveling at the bottle so carefully crafted for this very ink. Finally, you dip your pen in and feast your eyes on the beautiful color and accompanying shades. Of course, as any ink connoisseur would know, this ending is merely the beginning.

The Pilot Iroshizuku Fountain Pen Inks
have continually mesmerized with colors both rich and lively. Inspired by the fascinating landscapes of Japan and her lush array of plant life, each ink is carefully formulated as representations of Japan's beautiful scenery. With "iro" standing for coloring and "shizuku" meaning droplet, the result is a collection of natural hues crafted with the highest standards and variations in color.

In this article, I categorize our more than seventy blue inks into four color categories and pick a few from each category that I like.
Standard Blues and Middle Blue Shades
