Tools: Sheaffer’s Skrip Red Ink 02

I found a great deal on a vintage ink, and have read that they often are still good.
I bought it because the very cool jar it comes in has an inkwell to the side,
and figured I could always use the bottle if the ink was bad.

Used a Moonman Glass Dip pen (comes in many colors) to write for testing;
but I think it is fine!  I am cleaning pens today and will try out the red ink in a Jinhao Shark pen… A chomping grey or great white shark!

Meanwhile, love the packaging too… a box I will save!
