I will be getting at least one soon. Then I will report back. But I would like to know too, if anyone had the chance to try them.

I have seen pictures of Blue Velvet with a red sheen but I would be interested in finding out about the others.  I will be picking up Blue Velvet when Goulet has it back in stock.

I'm definitely getting Safari but I'm yet to decide about the other. Maybe Silver Fox but I'm not sure.

Blue Velvet looks great, let us know your findings once you got it. I'm interested in that one as well.

Diamine Cult Pens' Deep Dark Purple has incredible sheen.  Don't love the color (TOO dark), but it really makes an impression!

Hay un espejo que me ha visto por última vez,
Hay una puerta que he cerrado hasta el fin del mundo.
Entre los libros de mi biblioteca (estoy viéndolos)
Hay alguno que ya nunca abriré.
Este verano cumpliré cincuenta años;
La muerte me desgasta, incesante.

Private Reserve's Burgundy Mist is a crazy sheen-monster:

If only all monsters were so pretty!

Does the color of the ink stain on your fingers give others a window into the depth of your soul, or did you just forget to wear gloves?  Unknown.

Is there such a thing as a black ink with a red sheen?

I've never seen that particular combination.

I purchased the Sailor Jentle Ink yama dori specifically because of the red sheen.  I received a letter from an English pen pal asked what ink produced the sheen and immediately purchased a bottle and have really enjoyed it.
