Got an email from Pelikan about new, cartridge-fill pens (P200, gold trim; P205, silver). Sounds kinda like they will sell nib units separately and there will be Edelstein cartridges. I like my piston-fill Pelikan, but I'm leaning more toward cartridges in my everyday pens. They also revealed the Edelstein ink for the year-garnet. I think I have a new pen and ink in my future!

Oh, they picked another gemstone that comes in many colors as a name for an ink that comes in one color. They did that wrong with tourmaline (turmaline) previously.
I wish they would bring back the previous generation of Pelikanos. They were almost jewel toned.

I can't wait for those cartridges and I'll have to pick up a bottle of garnet. Need some more amber as well. I like that color and sepia from Pilot. I have a cheap Parker that amber works well in. I usually prefer xf/f but you need a little broader nib for the amber or it doesn't lay down enough ink.
