De Atramentis Document Ink - Red (35ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Eye-Catching Red I have been looking for an ink with which to edit my students' works, and this? This is it. I use a 1.1 stub nib; with that, this ink lays down a wet, saturated line with just a touch of perceptible shading. On cheap paper (I'm looking at you, freshmen!) there is a noticeable amount of bleed-through, but on good paper (I use both Circa and Arc white) the ink is well-behaved, with a fast dry. The color swab does not do it justice--in real life, it is the color of a ripe Big Boy Tomato. I do not hesitate to recommend this ink to anyone looking for a bright, noticeable, permanent ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Permanent Red to date! Out of a Sailor fine nib, it's a true red that is darker than Noodler's Empire Red. Would not mistake it for a glowing dark red or a cheery bright red. Minimal sheen and shading at best, more like none out of a fine nib. Maybe it will have some when using a broader nib, but I didn't test it. No bleeding at all, and ghosting, if any, is very difficult to see when writing on very thin Bible paper. Stunningly fast drying, and once it dries, it's waterproof, not just resistant. No movement at all when submerged under water for fifteen minutes; no visible dye around the letters, unlike some of my "bulletproof/eternal" inks (e.g., Bad Belted Kingfisher), so when the paper dries there is no sign of water contact other than the wrinkled paper. Flows very wet, although one could think it feathers a little, but to the extent that it does, I don't consider it a problem. Compared to it's main rival Noodler's Empire Red, which I like, De Atramentis Document Red is better, because it's essentially Empire Red without the faded chalky light red color. It's better than Noodler's Fox because it's a real red without the orange hue. On the pricy side, but there are currently very few options for a red with this kind of permanence.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Permanent Red Ink I've Tried This ink is my favorite permanent red ink (I've tried Noodler's Fox and Empire Red as well). The ink is relatively fast drying, has only slight feathering on cheap paper, and does not smear even under running water. I didn't give it a 5 because there is no shading and the color is a little flat, I would've like something more vibrant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Closest replacement to Noodler's Samsui Red(Singapore series) Noodler's has not replenished stock for the Singapore series for many years and my go to permanent red is lost until I tried and bought this ink. Though the ink swap looks light, the written sample is closer to the actual ink colour. This is almost exactly the same colour as Noodler's Samsui Red. Just more expensive. Nathan, please bring the Singapore series back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome permanent for fountain pens. I really, really enjoy being able to have a permanent ink which can be used in a fountain pen. I use my De Atramentis inks with my Lamy pens and it's a joy to use them for writing and drawing. I have several colours of document ink and love mixing up the colours for a never ending variety to colours. The red opens up whole new possibilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Ink! I am so pleased with your service! The chat person was awesome. He directed me to just the right product for my needs. I needed ink that would dry completely and quickly for me to use in my line and wash drawings. This gives me more flexibility to use calligraphy nibs for the line work or just a straight nib. Having the red (which is mixable) gives me a wonderful red/brown color which adds so much to the Italian scenes I usually create. Thanks again for a wonderful product and wonderful service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ink for sketching! De Atramentis document ink in amazing! I like to mix my own colors for sketching. I mix red and brown for a sepia tone that looks great. I love this brand because it's archival, waterproof and won't hurt my good pens.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lefties beware... First the good: It is permanent and a nice red (maybe slightly muted and not as vibrant as you might expect). The bad: As a left handed person I push the nib (hook handed version) as opposed to pull, and I find with this ink that I have a really hard time keeping with the ink flow (if I pull it across the page however it seems to flow fine). Below are my experiments: Pilot metropolitan, fine on cheap paper (absorbent): Hard to use and very frustrating, especially getting it started. Not the smooth writing experience of a well flowing ink that makes writing with a fountain pen so enjoyable. Pilot metropolitan, medium nib on cheap paper (absorbent): It actually works okay in this scenario and the ink flows well. It does have some starting and stopping issues for me but works pretty good most of the time. It does bleed pretty heavily though and the reverse side of the paper will probably be unusable. Pilot metropolitan, median nib, rhodia classic orange (not very absorbent and slick paper): It isn't as bad as the fine nib was on the cheap paper, but it still doesn't work very well here with lots of ink flow issues making for a less than enjoyable writing experience. Summary: If you want to use this ink as a lefty, you will need larger nibs, especially as you work up to better and less absorbent paper (my best guess is that I would need a broad nib to get it to flow properly on less absorbent and more slick paper).
