This is my second review of the ink from the another popular brand in India, CAMLIN KOKUYO whose presence is pan India.
Camlin used to manufacture 4 colors of ink in India under brand name CAMEL as follows:
- Scarlet Red
- Royal Blue
- Permanent Black
But lately they have stopped manufacturing the Green and there is a rumor in the market that Scarlet Red might also go of the shelves.
This CAMEL Scarlet Red ink , which I will be reviewing today was procured from local market in Delhi for meagre Rs. 15 for 60 ml glass bottle.
It is a dye based ink and it has turned out to be one of my all time favorite inks. Its bright shocking red ink. Love it.
Camel inks or Camlin inks are currently the most used inks in India because of their pan India presence.
Drop on Paper Napkin
The writing makes it clear that this ink offers no or very little shading. But still i love the brightness of this ink, the red brightness it has to offer. So in to your eyes.
The ink does not feather at all even on the normal school notebooks and is a very well behaved ink.
Its not waterproof at all. Just one run of tap water and all gets washed away.
Blow up Writing Sample
I like the shade of Red thats offered by Camlin.
This ink is nice wet ink and has a normal dry up time. It does not clog up the pen even if kept in the pen for a week or two.
One more thing is that doesn’t stain the Pen if you are using any demonstrator. Moreover i find it better than other inexpensive red inks in India and some international inks.
Must buy if you are in India and love the Red Color Ink.
