Do you have an ink dependence? I can help...

This is my favorite red ink. Maybe that'll change in the future, but this has been the one I've used for most of the last year. It's a bright, vivid red with just a bit of gold sheen. It behaves itself on cheap papers, and it's worked perfectly in every nib I've used it in.

The first sample was from Anderson Pens, but I liked it so much that I asked for a bottle of it for Christmas (and got it from my lovely wife!). It's really good.

The Written Review


This review felt really short. I kept thinking, "I need to write more words." I think the reason that I didn't write more is that there aren't any caveats or "but"s in my mind. This is just a really good ink. Totally worth the $18 per bottle.


Close Ups!

You can see the gold sheen in the picture below. It's not overwhelming, as it is in some other inks, but it's present when you use a wet enough ink.

The sample below was written with a SIG nib, and not with the SIG flex that is currently on the pen.

Color Comparisons!

Here are some more comparisons, and a way to compare it to whatever else you'd like. I think it looks a little more orange than usual in that picture, but that's probably just some of the gold sheen showing up.

Bonus!




**Anderson Pens provided a sample of this ink for review, but the bottle was a Christmas gift that was paid for with money. The review above represents only my experiences with the ink.**
