Since I am a student I am not much for red inks. Teachers usually don't like it when you use the color they use to mark up test. But I really like this red ink. The best thing to relate it to is a lipstick; not blood-red, but a pink that had enough red in it to be called red. I really like it, and love how wet it is in my Jinaho. Definitely would suggest it to someone who likes a bright red ink. Pics are up next!
