I'm a newbie fountain pen devotee. I was drawn to Oxblood upon my first introduction. I waited until my seven pen (Montevede flexnib) and happily found it my go-to, thoughtless writer pen! Perfect flow and esthetically perfect on the eyes.

Great ink! Worth the price!

I purchased this ink as one of my first-ever bottles to go along with my TWSBI Eco-T in fine. I bought it with another bottle of Diamine Majestic Blue and a pack of eight random samples. I was nervous at first, as I thought the ink would be too wet or too saturated. This was not the case. There is a subtly to the color that many miss. It looks beautiful on ivory or tan paper. It is wet, but not sloppy wet, and provided your nib is a fine or extra fine you should have no problem on cheap paper. As a student, that's really all I use. The dry time of this ink, typically on cheap paper, is SUPER fast! On nicer paper, the ink tends to sit a bit more, and as such the dry time is slowed ever so slightly. For the average person, this should not be a problem. It is important to note that this ink is not very water resistant, as I learned the hard way, but that should not be an issue if one is careful. All-in-all, I think this ink is great! Well worth it!

The blood of my enemies in ink form

This ink is amazing, this is now my favorite red ink. I totally recommend for the price.

Great Ink

I've had my eye on this ink for a while now, waiting on my previous "red" to run out, and I'm not disappointed at all. The color is great and writing experience with it is wonderful in both of the pens I've tried so far(Lamy & Montverde)

Blood Red

This ink really looks like blood when you spill it on your hands. It can be a jarring thing to see after an ink spill. I mainly use this for drawing and it's slightly wet. This let's me do a lot of quick strokes without worrying about the pen drying up. It feels like it's a little darker when dried too. I'm having a really fun time with it.

FAQs about Bottled Ink

Which pens can accept this ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Any of these fountain pens will work with bottled ink. Typically, as long as the pen can be filled with a converter, has a built-in filling mechanism like a piston, or can be eyedropper-filled, it can accept bottled ink.

What is shading, sheening, or shimmering ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Shading - A common (and often desired) result of a fountain pen ink pooling in certain parts of a letter when writing, so that the color and saturation of the ink appears different within a single letter or word. This characteristic cannot be achieved with ballpoint or rollerball pens and is a very appealing aspect of fountain pen use for those particularly drawn to all the pretty ink colors.

Sheen - Characteristic of a fountain pen ink where when ink pools another color can be seen on top of the ink, especially when looked at in different light angles using certain paper types. There is no way to guarantee an ink will sheen, but using a larger nib on a pen will help obtain sheening results in your writing.

Shimmering - Fountain pen ink that has small particles of glitter mixed in.

Is shimmering ink safe to use in fountain pens? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes! Shimmering ink is a great way to add some flare to your writing. We have found that a larger nib will showcase more shimmering particles while writing, but you can use any nib size and shimmering ink. All the ink we sell is safe for use in fountain pens.

My ink smells funny, is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Generally yes! Ink does not smell good- it usually has a chemical smell, along with other scents such as sulfur, rubber, chemicals or even paint. However, as long as you’re not seeing anything floating in the ink, it should be safe to use.

It’s cold and my ink froze; is it safe to use? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

Yes, frozen ink will not hurt your pen (after it’s thawed of course!) The issue with ink freezing is primarily a concern because certain glass bottles could break as the water-based ink expands, and then you’d have a mess!

What is your return policy for bottled ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B
