    Ink Review - Camlin Scarlet Red

    This is my second review of the ink from the another popular brand in India, CAMLIN KOKUYO whose presence is pan India. Camlin used to manufacture 4 colors of ink in India under brand name CAMEL as follows: Scarlet Red Royal Blue Green Permanent BlackBut lately they have stopped manufacturing the Green and there is a rumor in the market that Scarlet Red might also go of the shelves. This CAMEL Scarlet Red ink , which I will be reviewing today was procured from local market in Delhi for meagre Rs. 15 for 60 ml glass bottle. Camlin Scarlet Red It is a dye based ink and it has turned out to be one of my all time favorite inks. Its bright shocking red ink. Love it. Camel inks or Camlin inks are currently the most used inks in India because of their pan India presence. INK SPLASH Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Splash on Bilt Matrix – 70 gsm Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Splash on JK Executive Bond Paper – 100 gsm DROP ON PAPER NAPKIN Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Drop on Paper Napkin COLOR MATCH Camlin Scarlet Red – Color Match WRITING SAMPLES Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on Bilt Matrix (70 gsm) using 3 pens of varying nibs widths Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on JK Bond Paper (100 gsm) using 3 pens of varying nibs widths Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing Sample on Camlin School Notebook using 3 pens of varying nibs widths The writing makes it clear that this ink offers no or very little shading. But still i love the brightness of this ink, the red brightness it has to offer. So in to your eyes. The ink does not feather at all even on the normal school notebooks and is a very well behaved ink. INK SWABS Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on Bilt Matrix (70gsm) – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on JK Bond Paper (100 gsm) – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right Camlin Scarlet Red – Ink Swab Sample on Camlin School Notebook – 3 swabs, 2 swabs and 1 swab from Left to Right WATERPROOF TEST Camlin Scarlet Red – Waterproof test Its not waterproof at all. Just one run of tap water and all gets washed away. BLOW UP WRITING SAMPLE Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing sample close up on JK Bond paper (100 gsm) Camlin Scarlet Red – Writing sample close up Bilt Matrix (70 gsm) CONCLUSION: I like the shade of Red thats offered by Camlin. This ink is nice wet ink and has a normal dry up time. It does not clog up the pen even if kept in the pen for a week or two. One more thing is that doesn’t stain the Pen if you are using any demonstrator. Moreover i find it better than other inexpensive red inks in India and some international inks. Must buy if you are in India and love the Red Color Ink. For further details and entries, please visit my blog LINK
