This weeks' ink, Diamine Red Dragon is one of my favourites because it sits somewhat in between the two categories. It's definitely a red, compared to Diamine Oxblood for example, that is much closer to brown when it dries. But at the same time it's not as vivid and saturated as Montblanc Corn Poppy. It's not an in-your-face red, but it's not too unsaturated either.
As I said in the beginning of this review, part of why I like Diamine is becuase they are so affordable. Here in Europe, the 80ml bottles go for 7.75 EUR, the smaller 30ml bottles are about half that. In the US they are quite a bit more expensive, about 15 USD per bottle, so shopping across the pond might be something to consider (especially because non-EU customers don't pay VAT, and you can always get an extra 10% off from our sponsors with the provided codes!).
