    Krishna Njaval

    Krishna Njaval Thanks to amberleadavis for supplying this sample for review!!! Krishna inks are created by Dr. Sreekumar, a medical doctor. Dr. Sreekumar started experimenting with ink making, and then began production in 2010. His passion is to make these handmade inks in his beloved India. It appears that the color of the ink is inspired by the Njaval Pazham berry, also known as Java Plum, Black Plum and other names. The fruit is said to have both spiritual and health benefits. Njaval is a moderately saturated burgundy red ink with lots of character. Paper: Col-o-ring

    Ink Review: Diamine Poppy Red

    It's starting to feel like Spring here so I have been writing with another bright Spring like colour. This one is Poppy Red. This is a really bright scarlet red. It jumps off the page. It's a saturated red ink that looks even better when it's used in a pen with a broader nib. It almost looked subdued when I wrote with it in my fine nibbed AL Star. I loved it in my Lamy red Safari and it was such a good match for it. I decided to try and draw a poppy, but I know I'm no good at drawing so I did it in steps. This ink was a joy to write with, neither too wet nor too dry. It flowed well in the

    Ink Review: Diamine Monaco Red

    This is my review of Diamine Monaco Red. I decided to try a sample of this ink because I happened to be browsing on Goulets Pens web-site and noticed that it is one of their selections for their group of red inks. It's the type of 'blood' red I like, not too far along the orange scale and not too far along the blue scale. It has a hint of brownness to it, but is less brown than Oxblood. I have almost finished regrinding my Mb Boheme nib from a B to something less broad, although I'm not absolutely sure what it is yet. However, I wanted to try writing with it so I filled a cartridge with this
  4. I found a stash of old reviews that got misplaced during a house move, so this one's a bit old. Rouille D'ancre is one of my favorite "not for everyday use" inks. It's a bit dry when writing, but this color is completely unique. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/673/93tSKo.jpg

    Ink Review: Kaweco Ruby Red

    I have recently posted a review of the Kaweco AC Sport Red LE pen in the pen reviews forum. Here. I am adding a separate review of the Kaweco Ruby Red ink that I used in that pen when I tested it. I used a cartridge, and the Kaweco AC Sport Red LE pen has a F black, steel nib. I also used a 1.1mm steel nib in the same pen as a comparison. It looks much more saturated with the 1.1mm nib. This is an excellent red ink. It leans towards the red/pink end of the scale, which I much prefer, rather than those that lean towards the red/orange end of the scale. In fact some might suggest that Orchid Ro
  6. Following on from my thread announcing the launch of Diamine Shimmertastic inks I am happy to post my reviews of them. This one is Red Lustre. This ink is bright red with a great gold sheen My reviews show you my experiences with these inks in several of my pens. I’ve experimented by having these inks in my pens for weeks, and have intermittently written with them to see how they start, and how they write. I must say I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve experienced no feathering with any of them, and they have all behaved really well for me. Diamine recommend that you gently agitate the bottle

    What Would Be A Good "red" Red

    Dear fellow members, am looking for a " red " red, know, the kind that do not look orange or magenta , but solid red, like the Italian red Alfa Romeo used on their cars .. is there a good red ink that proximate or match !?

    Sheaffer Skrip Red Bottle

    A while back, I reviewed Sheaffer Skrip Red in cartridge form. It was a lovely, dark cranberry red color that I immediately fell in love with. Some people commented that is looked much darker than their bottle Red and I said I'd order a bottle and see if I found a difference Sorry it's taken so long to get to it, been busy at work. I was also waiting to use up the cart and, then, without thinking, I just rinsed and refilled the cart with the bottle ink - d'oh! So, no side-by-side. The bottle ink is, indeed, bright red, quite different compared to the cartridge color. This is undoubtedly the
  9. My latest ink is Diamine Classic Red Diamine Classic Red is a good, bright red ink. Not quite as bright or as eye-catching as Wild Strawberry, but still a nice, bright red. Classic Red leans more towards the pink end of the spectrum than Wild Strawberry does. In fact, even though I thought I had many reds, I couldn't find any in my collection, that I would say are almost identical to it. It's a well behaved ink in all of the pens and on all of the paper I tried it with. It's not overly saturated but I saw plenty of attractive shading. It wrote straight away without any hard starts or skipping
  10. We just received in our first batch of Montblanc Shakespeare Red Velvet 35ml ink bottles. It's truly stunning and I've been using it all morning for my notes (perks of working at a pen store!). Feel free to place an order here or to give us a call at 410-992-3272. Check out swatches of this ink. Best, Rachel Pen Boutique

  12. Did a quick search and didn't see this mentioned yet, but I could be wrong - apologies if this is a duplicate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIXyBr3-af0 Noodler's BERNing Red, billed as a quick dry ink for lefties. I'm not a lefty, but I can it being useful. Since this video was only posted March 1st 2016 I'm not sure when the ink would be available. (I'm not going to comment on the politics of this, btw , but the label is pretty cool)

    Bril Red Ink

    I bought the Bril red ink about a year back as NOS. It looked too pale for red color, so I thought it must have faded over time. I tried to look for reviews to compare my ink, but couldn't find any. Got a whole bunch of Bril inks recently. I had inked up my pen with the red ink and was penning some random thoughts, it just went in the direction of a review. So, here it is. I don't like this shade of ink, and something I use once in a while, just for variety. It is said to stain pens if left for a long time, but I am yet to see that happen. It's fairly wet, but not water-resistant at all.

    Red Inks For Grading

    Teachers and professors (or anyone else who uses red...): I'm looking for a unique red to grade. I've graded with J. Herbin Hematite Rouge, Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses, Noodler's Black Swan in English Roses, and currently am using Noodler's Black-Red (or is it Red-Black)? I'm looking for a change... I recently bought a Pilot Metropolitan for grading, but bought the fine and it's super fine. I'm looking for a very bold color that is clearly a fountain pen ink and not a gel-red ink. What do y'all use?

    Ink Review: Diamine Crimson

    I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. This one is Diamine Crimson. I would call it a bright, blood red. It's a well behaved, saturated ink with plenty of shading. I found it flowed smoothly across the page, and had no problems with lubrication in the 2 pens I used. It looks really bright in the 1.1 nib. This ink shows through and bleeds through on my thick paper, so I tried it on some cheaper paper. Showthrough and bleedthrough are both noticeable on there. I also tried this ink in my Pilot CH74 pen with F nib. That nib is like a nail an

    Ink Review: Diamine Matador

    My latest ink is Diamine Matador. This is a bright red. It's brighter than Red Dragon and is what I would call a perfectly balanced red in the middle of the red range. Not too much blue or orange/yellow. Because I like to compare the inks I am reviewing against other inks that I have, I decided to use Red Dragon, Monaco Red and Crimson as my comparison inks this time. However, no matter what I tried in Photoshop CS6, I couldn't get an exact colour replication for both Matador and Red Dragon on the same document for some reason. So I matched the document as closely as I could to Matador. Red D

    Pelikan Edelstein Garnet

    Today I tried my new bottle of Pelikan Edelstein Garnet for the first time. This was given to me by my older brother as part of a trade, and the only direction I gave him was that I wanted a red ink, since I didn’t have a bottle of red in my herd already. This is not my favorite shade of red, but it is an otherwise very pleasant ink to use. It has good flow and seems to be well behaved on the paper I used, which is a 24 lb inkjet paper but not overly special, like Rhodia or something. Something that it does not have is a good water resistance, though it’s very difficult to find a red i
  18. Here's a BRIGHT pink ink from Diamine. It's very similar to Noodler's Baystate Cranberry, but much better behaved and even brighter. It's definitely an interesting ink, though I personally prefer the color and look of Diamine Coral. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/913/JBu0r0.jpg
  19. It's an absolute shame that Caran d'Ache discontinued this ink. It's one of the best-behaved red inks I've had the pleasure of testing. I'm very glad I got a full bottle when I did. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/540/BezG0z.jpg
  20. Here's a very unique ink from Noodler's named after the first emperor of China. It's slightly on the acidic side (while most every other Noodler's ink has a neutral pH), and meant to look like terra-cotta (I suppose; it seems too bright for that to me). It also glows under UV, but isn't terribly dramatic. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/910/QoGL6d.jpg

    De Atramentis Rote Rosen Review

    -This review is an adapted version of the one that can be found on my personal blog (www.pencilcaseblog.com). Visit my blog for more pictures, a copy of the written review and of course many other pen, pencil, paper and ink reviews. Enjoy the review! (De Atramentis Rote Rosen review: http://www.pencilcaseblog.com/2014/06/inktastic-de-atramentis-rote-rosen.html )- Discovering a new ink brand is always exciting, especially when the ink smells like roses! At first, I was really excited about the perfume, it was immediately noticeable when I opened the bottle. And I must admit
  22. This is a poorly named ink about which I can't seem to make up my mind. On one hand, it's got soul, and plenty of it. On the other hand, it's so got-dang saturated that it dries out in the nib within seconds of not being used. It does take on a unique rusty hue when diluted, and the added water helps with some of the performance issues. Worth a try before you buy a full bottle outright (like I did ). http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/716/9i8s.jpg

    Toucan Scarlet Ink

    Just when I thought I'd finished reviewing the Toucan range of inks, I've discovered an extra colour! More to the point, when the JustWrite company began stocking the Toucan ink range in 30ml bottles as well as pouches, they decided to make the entire range available - including the one colour they'd decided NOT to distribute at the outset. I think the review will make it obvious why the JustWrite crew didn't consider it worth selling BOTH Crimson AND Scarlet - they're very similar - but as a lover of red inks I'm more than happy to have both in my arsenal. The crimson is probably the 't

    Toucan Crimson Ink

    Here is ink #5 in the range of Toucan inks - and another of my personal favourites. This ink has been pretty constantly in one or more of my fountain pens since I first got hold of it. I think the hand-written review pretty much says it all (assuming you can read my handwriting) - but feel free to ask if you have any questions.

  25. Having yesterday afternoon performed an unplanned gravity-and-inertia test in our driveway, which efficiently de-surfaced my left knee, I am here to tell you that Skrip red (new) is quite a good match for fresh blood, while Diamine Poppy Red matches very fresh blood in smaller quantities, and also the de-surfaced skin region itself. Hope it helps... (If there were an Ow! emoticon, I would use it...)
