  This is an interesting..., January 21, 2011
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.
