This is my first (and long-awaited) bottle of Rouge Hematite and it's fun stuff!
Finer strokes are vivid red. Medium and broader lines add a beautiful darker
component which people describe as green or brown or gold, depending. The result
is a very dignified red as long as the nib is well-supplied with ink. The new
bottle caps are covered in a supple wax that doesn't crumble like the old wax
apparently did. The box carries a label advising "Don't leave ink in fountain
pen reservoir." I intend following that advice so I don't experience any
crusting or clogging. It means using this ink from the bottle with a dip pen
only, but that suits me. The ink will simply last longer and I won't have any
trouble cleaning it from my fountain pens. Thank you again JetPens for a nice
product at an attractive price with lightning speed.
