I present to test the ink Sheaffer Skrip Red with a beautiful, highly saturated red color. Ink writing very perfectly. Swimmingly nib flows on paper. Good drying, no bleed through even worse photocopying paper. So far underestimated inks Sheaffer, from today it will change, I guarantee. Highly recommended!

Pen: Waterman Hemisphere, nib "F"


Paper: Image Volume (80 g / m2)



Specifications:


Flow rate: very good

My favorite red. I originally bought a bottle to make Binder Burgundy and ended up using the red more. I love it when these inexpensive non-premium inks turn out to be so good.

Don't forget you can mix Skrip red with Waterman's purple to get Richard Binder's Burgundy ink

This is my standard red ink.

And with Christmas coming up, it is a great match to use with a nice green ink.

Thanks for a good review...

 

Bought this ink a while back and was absolutely delighted. Use it my "29" Red Ripple Wahl Eversharp with a "not quite" wet noodle nib and love to send off message written in this ink. Most people are really surprised when they see the manufacturer and color. Just think, a very nice ink, from a good manufacturer that can be bought for a very reasonable price.

 

At the moment I am on pen & stuff spending diet (lead me not into temptation) so I will have to hold off on all new purchases!

 

It's not like I am limited to 20 or 30 inks... LOL

This is the best pure red, IMO. When I want a red that is not not orangey or purpley, Sheaffer Red is always where I go. It is well behaved as well.

I believe I have about 8 oz of the stuff.

Don't feel bad. I'm old; I'm meh about most things.

Ok... I guess is only me, it looks PINK on my screen. Not red at all. :(

 

 

A nice strong pink BTW... :)

This is My goto and regular Red. Now if I could find a Green with the same good properties...

The only constant is change.

I've used Sheaffer Skrip Red and Montblanc Irish Green on my cards for the last four or five Christmases. Sheaffer Skrip Red is Christmas red, no doubt about it.

I love the smell of fountain pen ink in the morning.

Yes, I have found that uploading pictures into FPN looses both the original color and sharpness, which is quite frustrating considering what we are looking at and why.

Try Diamine Ultra Green or Noodler's Gruene Cactus.

 

Diamine Ultra Green and Sheaffer Skrip Red are my inks for Christmas cards.

Definitely my favorite red ink...a true red. I always have a backup bottle of Skrip Red on hand. Thanks for an awesome review, Akszugor.
