CONS
  • There's still a bit of pink to this red, if you are looking for a true solid, deep red!
  • I always pay extra attention to reds - careful in demonstrators and cleaning them thoroughly because they can stain. 
OVERALL

I'm fairly picky about my red inks. I don't care for washed out reds or pink-reds or half-reds or non-red-reds. What? I'm not sure. Valentine's Red actually surprised me. I think it has a bit of pink to it when it's spread out so in this case, I actually find it best in a broad, wet nib and not a wider nib that spreads the ink like a stub or italic. It has some sheen, it's quite rich, and the bottle is not only super affordable, it's really easy to fill from. Really nice stuff.



I received this item/these items free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
