Sailor, I just sent you a letter with a few reds that I have inked up at the moment.  

 

PS my vote goes to Levenger.

+ 1 for Binder Burgundy,

 

I do have a bottle of Diamine Syrah and it really looks the same but for some reason I stick to BB.

 

regards,

Diamine Syrah. There's nothing under the sun, colour-wise , that Diamine inks can't do. Just sayin'...

I prefer Private Reserve Arabian Rose, second would be Diamine Merlot.

I use Noodler's Burgundy, but the other ones mentioned here are pretty good.

Another vote for Diamine Syrah, or maybe Merlot but Syrah is bit closer what you looking for.

Another vote for Diamine Oxblood. Love it!!

 

https://www.google.c...BDvCVeVuLXEPcM:


Franklin-Christoph, Italix, and Pilot pens are the best!
Iroshizuku, Diamine, and Waterman inks are my favorites!

Apica, Rhodia, and Clairefontaine make great paper!

Which one did you choose? I am using Shiraz; it seemed too pink at first, but it is growing on me.

I have Shiraz, and yup, it's pretty pink underneath. I'm going with Sailor Oku-Yama.

And after all that, you might need a bit of this to recover.
