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.

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....
