I really love this ink!...
, March 30, 2014
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.
