I love this ink. The flow is wet but not out of control by any means. Depending on the pen/nib size, it goes down on the paper as anything from a slightly dark orange to a very dark and rich earthy red. There's also a hint of water resistance, which I really appreciate. If you get it wet, most of the color will run, but you should still be able to read what you wrote. I like the bottle it comes in too: metal cap that won't crack like so many plastic ones do, and the bottle is fairly deep, which will make filling a little easier as the level decreases. I have noticed this ink is sometimes darker/wetter than other times, but I'm not sure if that's an inconsistency in my pen or the ink. Oh, also, this ink has great shading. I'm glad I bought it. It's going to be one of my regular go-tos.
