I haven't reviewed any Kaweco inks yet, so today let's take a look at Kaweco Ruby Red. I purchased my sample of ink from Vanness Pens.
Ruby Red is not quite red but not quite pink, it's right in-between.
In large swabs the ink looks more pink than red.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 40 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering and bleeding.
I used a Waterman 52 1/2 on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, I really like this ink. It is well behaved, and is right on the line between red and pink.
