First impressions - this is a really nice ink. Flow is good, feathering has been non-existent on even cheap paper, and there's virtually no show through on copy paper, Staples bagasse, or Moleskine. The initial color is fairly bright red, and as the ink dries it begins to show some brown tones and darker highlights. I haven't tried any drip tests yet, although there is no claim to water fastness on the box or various web sites.

Edited to add: It also dries fairly quickly, at least from my fine nibbed pen...just finished a journal entry and did not need to wait for it to dry to close the book.
