It feels like it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to say this – I LOVE this ink.
Diamine Poppy Red fountain pen ink is a pure, bright red ink with a teeny tiny bit of potential for shading. The ink dries faster than average on the page and doesn’t feel dry (nor too lubricated) in the pen. There is not much water resistance, but I didn’t expect there to be. There were no hard starts, no ghosting, no bleeding, no problems. Just plain ole happy red RED saturated ink.

Seriously, I have nothing but good things to say about Poppy Red from Diamine. This review is from a sample I bought from Goulet Pens. I will have a full bottle of it in the very near future. Love, love, love.

What do you think? Love it? Maybe you have another go-to favorite red ink?
How was your Thanksgiving? Mr. Pentulant and I were at the beach for the long weekend. We had a great time. So relaxing.
