This is an interesting color. I have tested it out on many different papers and
it performs well on all semi-descent to decent papers, with no feathering. Also,
on my Lamy Safari EF, there is no ink creeping onto the nib like other inks do
on this pen (for example, Lamy blue).
Now to describe the color. This is certainly not red, and loosely in the red
hues at that. The range of colors I see, while testing on different paper colors
ranging from extra white to off-white to yellow, varies from a light, bright
highlighter pink to an orange-ish-pink. Personally, I love this color and am
quite exited to use it on yellow docket pads for my work (math). However, I
think this is highly subjective and can understand if people are upset with Lamy
with misnaming their ink 'red.'
I would rate this a 5 but, seeing as there is no indication from Lamy that this
is not a true red, I will take off one point.
