I bought this fountain pen because its (1) red and (2) because I need a back- up for my other red Kaweco Sport Classic (rKSC) in case it gets lost, stolen, or damaged. I proof read and correct many paper documents, and I use the rKSC. I use bright-red ink in my rKSCs. And whenever I see my corrections on rough drafts, the bright red-ink reminds me of the bright-red ink my English teachers used to mark up my reports. Those were the days. A wonderful trip down memory lane.
