Graf-von-Faber-Castell-Garnet-Red-nazwa.

 

I present to test the ink Graf von Faber-Castell Garnet Red, which is the exact opposite of Pelikan Edelstein Garnet. Pelikan ink is dark only under a cloudy sky. Besides, it has more yellow and orange glow. Graf von Faber-Castell is more burgundy, whether in the sun or in the shade. It also appears when you write, the more bold ink.

 

Manufacturer: Graf von Faber-Castell

Series, colour: Garnet Red

Pen: Waterman Hemisphere, nib "F"

Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2)

 

Specifications:

Flow rate: good

Lubrication: good

Bleed through: possible point

Shading: noticeable

Feathering: unnoticeable

Saturation: good

Informative review of a very well behaved and nicely saturated red ink. I own this one and really enjoy using it. Thanks, Akszugor.

This one looks "dry" to me. Which is strange for a color named after a precious stone. Sailor's Oku-yama would be a better "garnet" ink. Still, not a bad color.
