It's an absolute shame that Caran d'Ache discontinued this ink. :(  It's one of the best-behaved red inks I've had the pleasure of testing. I'm very glad I got a full bottle when I did.

I like it, but not enough to be upset that I won't be able to get any. Interesting shade of Rouge Hematite you've got there though!

Thanks for the review. I liked most of the old Cd'A inks, but not enough to buy them all.

Wow, that is too bad it's discontinued.  That's a really nice color.  I got a bottle of Grand Canyon on clearance, and that is also very well behaved.

Thanks for the review anyway.

Anyone know of an ink that would be close in color to this?
