Diamine Red Dragon (80ml) is rated 4.7444 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Ink! I am just joining this mad world of fountain pens and this is the first "third-party" ink I have used. I am using a Lamy Joy and the refillable Z24 ink cartridge. This ink is beautiful and dries very quickly, which is an essential characteristic for ink if you are left-handed. And if you're looking for something for a love letter, this ink makes you look like the classiest person on the planet. It's saturated enough to be very modern and lively, but deep and rich enough in color to evoke a classic feel. As much as it is timeless, it definitely brings with it a feel of an older more romantic more simple world, without looking like an antique.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A rich, blood red. This was one of my first ink purchases, and it's certainly as vibrant a red as the swab suggests! There's a complexity and richness to this hue of red-- brown and purple hues within this ink make it stand out from the basic reds in other companies' standard line-ups (Waterman and Sheaffer come to mind). The only downside I found with this ink is that it takes more effort to clean it out of my pens than most other inks. Of course, there's also the point that red isn't as conservative as black, blue, or blue-black, but that's kind of a given-- this isn't an everyday ink.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shade of Dark Red I recently purchased Red Dragon to compliment the Oxblood I have been enjoying for a couple of months now. I wanted something just a shade or two lighter than Oxblood, but not something bright red. This fit the bill for me. While Oxblood is like dark, dried blood, this has more of a fresh blood quality. Definitely more red, but not true red. This ink also has more shading than Oxblood. It can also appear lighter or darker, depending on how wet you have your nib adjusted. If you're looking for a nice dark red that still retains some true red, this will do it for you. Like all Diamine inks, it is well behaved in all my pens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from deep strong red I was looking for the perfect red for marking up draft documents and highlighting in my notes. This is the best I've found so far. This is a deep red, not a true red, and tends to take on a brownish tone when used on tinted paper. I use Leuchtterm1917 books for taking notes at work, and this ink dries to a reddish-brown on the ivory pages. On white paper it looks more red. It leaks a bit in my Lamy Safari (EF) when it's sitting between uses, hence the 4-stars, rather than 5. I seem to get it on my hands more often than I would like, where it's clinging around the nib area and around the collar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep red I like super-saturated colors in general, and Red Dragon is a beautiful red ink. It's dark, but not overly so. If I were still teaching, this is the ink I would use for making corrections. I had no flow problems with the ink in my TWSBI Vac 700. It was a little scratchy with my Heritance fine semi-flex nib that I have on one of my turned wood pens, but that nib is always a little scratchy. In short, it's a very nice ink, not much shading, but very saturated. No issues with bleedthrough or feathering on my Rhodia webbie or my Clairefontaine Triomphe paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INTENSE is the Word This is the most vivid and intense colors I ever come across. Red Dragon is a very nice shade of blood red. It resembles J.Herbin's Rouge Hematite, but Dragon red is about half-again deeper and more intense. One could describe it as the "Baystate Blue" of deep red inks. The only difference is that Dragon Red is MUCH better behaved. Unlike Baystate Blue, it doesn't tend to spread or feather and it does play well with others (inks, that is). If it has any problem it may be that it's too intense. It still looks fine when diluted with 20% (or more?) water. I've found that mixing Diamine Red Dragon with Sheaffer Red 1:1 gives a very lovely (and stable) deep red that is still very vivid and as well-behaved--also more economical. It is particularly noteworthy to emphasize the virtual lack of shading. If you want a good shading deep red ink you'll have to look elsewhere. But if you are looking for incredible vivid intensity from one edge of the line to the other, your ink has just come in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crud on the nib I really cannot recommend this ink. I ordered a sample from Goulet Pen Company. I tried it in several pens and did not particularly like the colour. But that is just a matter of taste and I'm not deducting any stars for that reason. The problem is that after I left it in one of my Parker 51s for a couple of weeks, it developed some solid "fuzz" on the nib, likely a precipitate from the ink. That particular pen has seen many inks and this is the first time that problem has occurred. I'm currently in the process of flushing it from the pen, which is taking far longer than is usual with that pen. This would be consistent with a similar precipitate having developed inside the pen, and gradually dissolving with each water flush. There are some Diamine inks that I like very much. This is not one of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diamine Oxblood, Syrah, and Red Dragon I am a regular user of Diamine inks, so when these new red/burgundy inks became available, I had to try them. They are every bit as good as the regulars in my Diamine stable, free flowing, well-saturated but not over-saturated, and a pleasure to use. Oxblood is a dark red with black overtones. I think it's my favorite of the trio. Syrah is a true burgundy. And Red Dragon is a brighter hue with a fiery temperament. My thanks to Brian for making these available and for being such a pleasure to deal with!
