Lovin' the Red!

Perfect Red

Exactly what I wanted it to be. A perfect Red to help distinguish your writing from others.

Kent O.
My first Lamy

Gave this to my wife as a gift. I was advised by a regular Goulet Pen customer. Wife was thrilled with the pen! Will buy others for sure!

James M.
A decent ink from Lamy

Overall, the ink is not bad, but it has some weak points. It's a lovely, cool red, with good flow and a quick dry time, but as some of the other reviews have noted I can confirm it is not a particularly bold or vivid ink. It appears to be almost transparent due to the hue of the ink, which borders on pink as others have noted. For making quick notes or other notations I'm sure it'll work fine, but for long form note-taking or writing you might want to reconsider.

Lovely pink

This ink is labeled as red but it really is pink. I picked it up because I was looking for a nice pink coral color and this does the trick. If you want a red ink, this will disappoint you. Check out some offerings by Diamine or Robert Oster (both have some really lovely reds). But if you are looking for a pink ink, this one is worth a shot.
