PROS
  • Beautiful, rich red.
  • Well-behaved ink - minimal bleedthrough and showthrough.
  • Good flow.
  • Looks amazing when used in a very wet nib.

CONS
  • I've heard from others this ink is a little dry and gives some nib creep. As a saturated red, nib creep isn't surprising, however, I haven't experienced that yet. Could be the nibs/pens used. 
  • Bleeds like crazy with water contact.
OVERALL

Mmmm as soon as I saw this ink was being released, I knew I would have to try it. It's a beautiful, rich, warm red that looks outstanding in broad and/or wet nibs. Being a red, it requires proper cleaning, but it doesn't behave terribly and I love the color.
