Great color for an every-day red
When purchasing this ink, my hope was for a red ink I could use for mark-up, but restrained enough for everyday use as well. This ink works well for that. It plays nicely with my pen, flows evenly with a minimal of skips, and doesn't creep up the nib. The color is pleasant, not to hard on the eyes even with larger blocks of text. It's one of the few deep red inks I could find, and for the most part I'm happy with it. If your pen is prone to leaking, this ink probably will. In my pen, if I put too much pressure on the nib, the ink will readily blot. Overall, not anything to complain about though, as long as I don't put too much pressure on the pen itself the ink stays well behaved. My only complaint is that the ink dries quite slowly and smudges easily. I expect this is mostly due to the high pigmentation.

Great red starandard international cartridge
I bougt this as I have several pens that use standard internatioal cartridges and I like red and black inks. This is a nice dark red ink that flows nicely. I'm glad I did.
