I had high hopes for this ink after seeing a few favorable reviews on the FPN. I like deep, dark reds and this one is dark when it flows well. My expectations weren't met, though. I'm disappointed that I don't like it more than I do. The main problem with this ink is that it just didn't flow well for me. (I had it loaded up in my Lamy Al-Star, so I don't think the pen was the problem.) It was one of the driest flowing inks that I've used. It felt scratchy on the page, and the line was much more faint than I would have preferred. I might give it another try at some point in a different pen, but the Lamy is one of my most reliable ones so I don't know.
