Oxblood is moving past blood and into scab.
"The only red I had previously was Parker Quink. With a fine tipped pen it just wasn't jumping out on the paper like I needed. So I was on the search for a red that was less pink, more vibrant.
I was between Diamine Red Dragon or Oxblood. Went with Oxblood as it looked to be more different than what I had. Oxblood has a LOT of brown to it, like a rich red/brown brick. I like it, but was after something a little more red. Don't get my wrong, it is definitely red and not brown, but it isn't really the vibrant red I was looking for. When I write a line of MB Toffee Brown next to the oxblood, they look too similar. Hard to explain. I may have to pick up Red Dragon on my next ink run.
As far as performance goes, the ink is very well behaved. Doesn't strike me as too dry or wet. It doesn't bleed through paper. I am happy."
