Came in my monthly Inkredible box. Nice bright blood red color, my wife saw the paper towel I had wiped the nib on after loading and thought I had a nose bleed! Flows smoothly from the pen converter I loaded it in. Comes in a brown glass bottle, so you can't see the color through it, but the label appears to be hand written with a large color blotch. Box is labelled with the batch number as well as the color.
