Bril Red Ink

Recommended Posts

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.


I have not done such long writing by hand in a while, hopefully will be doing more writing this year and more reviews too :)


Not calibrated my scanner, the color looks a little darker in my monitor.

Thank you for sharing your observations, and welcome to FPN. We don't have many reviews of the Bril inks. I've heard from others that they are not supersatured so your experience may be typical. Again, thank you!

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Don't care to much for the gamet of red inks, but I had a Noodlers Rattler Red Eel in my pack of samples. So, I put it in my Pilot Elite 95s for its latest fill. Can't say as I like it very much. It is very light, though indesputably a red. It's the reddist ink I've seen yet but it doesn't pop out at you. It's very muted, even on white paper. I can definately say, that even if I was into red inks, this one wouldn't do it for me. If I was going for anything in the reddish range, I would pick the Diamine Syrah. It's red enough without it being Jump OUT AT You red.My Elite puts down a good line of ink, so it's not that it writes dry. Just my thoughts on this ink.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
