I'm currently reviewing some of my favourite Diamine inks. This is Diamine Red Dragon. I think it's a very good alternative for Montblanc Hitchcock. In fact it's more saturated. It also leans less pink than several other dark red inks. It's what I would call a blood red ink, but it isn't as dark or brownish as Diamine Oxblood. If you prefer your red inks to be a bit darker and not eye-poppingly bright red, then Red Dragon fits the bill. This ink is neither waterproof nor archival but it's water resistant.Bearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, and I write with M and B nibs, this in
Hi, friends. I've got my new Custom Urushi with astonishing vermilion finish. It came with CON-70 converter, and I inked it up with Diamine Red Dragon which is one of my favorite red.

Mixing two well behaved inks, the result seem to be okay -- no feathering or bleeding on Rhodia 80gsm paper. (Unfortunately this isn't super calculated so I ca
Hello all, This is my first post on the FPN. I am looking for an opaque or at least very saturated with little to no shading red ink. This is mainly for use in a 6mm Pilot Parallel calligraphy pen. I've tried several colors but to no avail. I've highlighted the problem exemplars in yellow in the images below. Diamine Red Dragon is my favorite red ink, and it almost gets the job done, but it still looks blotchy in the 6mm PP: Here is Noodler's Park Red: I prefer the shade of the Red Dragon, but I need something that doesn't look splotchy when going over the same area with multiple strokes.
