On my monitor (an old Mac studio) it looks like a lovely deep red--something in which I'd certainly be interested. I'll make a point of looking at it on my Dell monitor in the office tomorrow to see how it compares. Thanks so much for the big, clear review.


I came here for the pictures and stayed for the conversation.

A deep red with nary a hint of brown on my monitor, as well. I noticed that chkuo's Pelikan Brown scan seemed quite red on my monitor, too, but all the rest have been pretty dead on.

Thanks for all the great scans, chkuo! I envy you your ink collection!

Ryan.

By themselves alone, I feel both Pelikan Brown and Galileo Brown look quite red. But of course, you've to admit that they are indeed "brown" if you put them next to Waterman Red:



I'd like a brown that's darker and has less red/orange in it; neither met my criteria of "true brown".

Well, I've been sucked into this ink addiction mess by other evil-doers here. Got to do something to pass down the torch you know. roflmho.gif

Oh, also I don't really have that many inks; at least this is what I told myself. wink.gif

Yeah, right -- you can quit collecting/using inks anytime you want... wink.gif

I just recently got a bottle of Noodler's Burgundy and am beginning to notice a few things about it. If one shakes the bottle before filling, the color seems to darken and appears very much like what I see on my monitor for your Galileo Manuscript Brown. Has anyone actually seen these two that can offer a comparison?

haha, very funny. It's not like you are doing any better. tongue.gif

BTW, do remember that you are the one who send me this ink. As a result, I'm entitled to blame you for my ink addiction. lticaptd.gif

to be honest I really didn't like this color (or Waterman Brown for that matter) .... too mauve-ish. The other issue was the nib creep .... ooowww, just a bit tooo much with this ink (whereas the Waterman behaved beautifully)
