Thank you for a fantastic review! That paper towel trick is so clever. I'm definitely borrowing it!

Whisper Red seems to be a very difficult colour to capture correctly on photo or with a scan. The inkxperiment scan above is definitely a touch too purple. Below is a photo of the inkxperiment taken in sunlight - this shows a more accurate appearance of the colour.

Love you review(s) and your drawing....the ink well...
I found it striking that you used a Gladiator scene albeit comical with whisper red.
This is favorite quote by "Marcus Aurelius" from the movie Gladiator
There was once a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish… it was so fragile. And I fear that it will not survive the winter. Maximus, let us whisper now, together you and I.....

Your reviews are amazing, I love them, and I love you too for making them!

This really is a chameleon ink ... depending on the light you get a completely different-looking colour. I really hate it when inks behave this way. Anyway ... to better help you make up your own mind, I've added a photo made in sunlight of a writing sample (compare with the scanned image in the review) - this one looks much less purple.

TERRIFIC review. Thank you.
Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).
