The Color: It is definitely red, but there are orange-toned reds and blue-toned reds and this red definitely skews on the orange side.
Consistency: Mostly, very dry in flow and watery in saturation. However, the color was quite vivid at more saturated moments.
Overall: Le sigh. I love (LOVE!) J. Herbin inks, but I just do not like this one. While I normally prefer blue-toned reds to orange-toned reds, I could still like this color if not for the flow and saturation problems. This ink is just too dry and doesn’t flow well.
Purchasing and Pricing: A 30mL bottle runs between $7-10 depending on the retailer and is available at most online retailers catering to fountain pen and ink users.
