I read a lot of reviews about red inks before purchasing this one. On the plus side, it is dark enough and very readable, unlike some inks that reviewers said were too thin or pale. On the down side, it isn't as red as I would like. I would describe it as more of a "brick" type of color. It is rather distinctive, so maybe it will grow on me.

Very lovely shade of red, leaning towards rose but not pink enough to be considered magenta.. :)
The final result is just a *little* bit pinker than the sample picture.

I've used mine with brush and dip pen, and it both flows very well and leaves a pretty even finish.
It's a very watery ink, so I have no problems with getting an even flow off my dip pen.
It washes very nicely off of a dip-pen, but requires a bit of work to come completely off a brush. It's by no means a huge struggle.

Nice strong neutral red. Not tilted towards either blue or orange to my eye. Lots of shading, very lively and pleasant ink to write with for pages. Not as soothing an ink for reading, but I don't think most people buy red ink for extended reading?
