I really love this ink!...

I really love this ink! It flows out of my Pilot Metropolitan very smoothly. Almost looks like blood when it first touches the paper. But when it dries, it dries to a deep, true red, with no hint of brown. A lovely red that is eye-catching but shares the page well with other colors--perfect for highlighting key terms for my notes. (And writing dates that stand out, and writing really cool looking sticky notes, and finally having a red ink that looks great for seasonal cards.)

I have tested the ink on several kind of paper. It will bleed through the thinnest cheap notebook I have, but nothing else. Normal copy paper should be fine, with just a bit of show-through.

One minor thing I was very pleased with was the bottle the ink came in. It is identical the the bottle shown, except the cap is not a marbled green, but a plain, pure black. The black cap looks much better, in my opinion.

Beautiful (very) dark red color and performs well. When I say dark, I don't mean "blackish," but a very very "deep" red. I wanted the Oxblood, but since it was out of stock, I bought this one. It's exactly what I had in mind. I don't have much occasion to use it, but it's a great color if you use red ink very often.

This is my special red. Intense, deep, dark red!!! Saturayis gorgeous in thick writings and the contrast with the delicate lines. So far I bought 4 different colors of the diamane ink and they all clean up very well, perform flawlessly with dip pens and the variaty of colors is amazing. This red is a must have above all!!! I must stock up and will continue my collection of diamond inks

As part of an order of a number of inks, this was very nice. The inks came extremely well- and securely-packed, and quickly as well. I'm very pleased!

At first I felt a little bit appalled writing with this ink, as it felt like I was writing with blood! I tried it in a few different pens but it seemed a bit thick. I thinned some of it with a small amount of distilled water and liked the result very much. I found it worked best in my old Pelikan Go! medium nib pen and I was able to warm up to this ink at last. The large bottle is a great value; I'll be using it for a long time, and I do use it every day. I'm not sure if I'll buy it again, however; I prefer J. Herbin inks.
Gorgeous ink....
