    I was just going to say the same thing – Diamine Red Dragon

  • Zhe Zeng

    I think suitable colour would be Edelstein Ruby !!!

  • Cosima Kafka

    I have a bottle of Abraxas Purpurrot I picked up on a visit to Berlin. But Kaweco Ruby Red would also do nicely I think!

  • AbdElRhman Zagloul

    I would use pelikan brilliant red.

  • Eric Johnson

    Oooof. What ink… Iroshizuku Tsutsuji

  • Gordon

    I’d throw some Diamine Terracotta in this beauty.

  • Rami Nagrobis

    A black ink, as Diamine’s, Iroshizuku or Herbin (perle noire)

    Parker Quink red

    Diamine Red Dragon or Apache Sunset.

    The best would be Diamine Shimmertastic Ink in Red Lustre, and second – Red Dragon. I have used Dragon in few different pens, with different nibs – it was always with good results.

  • Joseph Demanuele

    I would ink it up with diamine oxblood.

  • Joe

    I’d go with Montblanc DaVinci Red Chalk if I could find a bottle. More pens more problems. =)

  • Achim

    I think I’d have to buy a new ink, don’t know yet, probably not Montblanc Oyster Grey, which I will get some time.
    Iroshizuki momiji might be a fine fit.

  • Mike West

    Also Diamine Red Dragon

    I would pair it with Diamine Red Dragon.

  • scott d

    I think a good match with this pen would be Diamine Wild Strawberry.

  • Pilgrim

    I think the best match for the Xezo would be either Scrip Red or Diamine Rustic Brown (a little more interesting than just red).

  • Christian Haitz

    I would have to go with Diamine Oxblood

  • Ken

    Pelikan Smoky Quartz!

  • I’ve been having a lot of fun with Noodlers Berning Red lately. I think I would match that with an Eternal Flame. 🙂 Thanks for another fabulous giveaway, Matt!

  • Penn

    I would pick a matching ink like Diamine Oxblood!

  • sharon888

    Diamine Oxblood.

  • Émile Blier

    I think I would go with Irushizuku momiji

  • Micah Barnum

    As much as red makes a lot of sense, it brings back too many memories of poorly written papers from my college years.

    I’d probably go with Noodler’s Ottoman Azure for a nice red/blue combination.

  • Bruce Rogie

    Stipula Dark Red!

  • Kaiser Venzon

    I would put in a nice red or bright orange type of ink on it. However if it is for formal events black will be the color to use

  • col.db

    why exactly matching an ink colour with the pen – it’s so boring. So perhaps MB Lucky Orange which You’ve shown somewhere lately would make a nice combo 😉

  • chuan chuan

    Diamine Autumn Oak! hehehe

  • BadassMcKill

    I think I would use Noodler’s Cayenne

  • Justin DeGuzman Maramba

    Platinum Cassis Black(The new iron-galls coming out from Platinum).

  • Stefan

    It would most likely be Diamine Red Dragon.

  • Daven Savla

    I would go with Mont Blanc corn poppy red, my favorite red.

  • Hannah Malcolm

    Private Reserve Black Cherry would be my match!

  • Jill the Reckless

    It deserves something strong and bold like Pelikan’s Edelstein Amber – a perfect marriage of gold and red, so I’d use that.

  • Jose

    Diamine poppy red.

  • Andy

    Robert Oster Fire and Ice!

  • Jan-Erik Sjøstedt

    The Eternal Flame – Poem by Dave Alan Walker “We are fires/of the eternal flame/burning bright/from one life to the next” Pilot Iroshizuku Momiji, Autumn Leaves a good match

  • Mae-Mae Han

    I think Diamine Red Dragon would match well!

  • Daniel R

    Kaweco Palm Green to be festive.

  • Jake D

    I would use Diamine Blue Flame because then you’d have multiple colors of flames!

  • Garand Gal

    I’m not typically a fan of red inks (they cause flashbacks to grade school!) but I enjoy R&K Magenta and would gladly pair it with the Xezo.

  • Elizabeth

    Noodlers ottoman rose perhaps

  • David

    This could be sacrilege, but a bright red needs a deep, blacker-than-black ink, like Sailor Kiwa-Guro.

    • Achim

      It’s your choice. I personally don’t like black inks at all, but I’m fine with people who like to write with black ink.

    I would match the Eternal Flame with Sailor Jentle Four Seasons Sakura-Mori – it’s a lovely pink with nice shading.

    maybe Diamine Burnt Sienna?

  • Alessandro Piazza

    I would use Damine Oxblood. Thank you for the giveaway

  • Justin Jones

    Diamine Red Dragon, no question about it!

  • rmonster

    I would go with my J Herbin Bleu Myosotis. I really dig the whole fire and ice theme.

  • Basak A.

    Diamine oxblood, maybe? I do not have many red inks

    I’d choose J Herbin Rouge Hematite, Diamine Red Dragon or Noodler’s Nikita

    I would ink it with J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hématite, it would be a perfect match !

  • kandm25

    So many reds…J. Herbin Rouge Hematite.

  • Phoenix Golshan

    I would use any ink with either red or orange colours, like the J. Herbin Hermatite or Diamine Poppy Red. Diamine Sunset is quite nice too!

  • Brian Wilsey

  • Michael

    I think that Montblanc Corn Poppy Red would be fabulous in this pen.

  • Rhy

    The obvious answer would be some sort of bright red like Red Dragon, or orange/yellow/red shading ink like Apache Sunset.

  • Heikki Virtanen

    If we talk about matching ink, Diamine Oxblood it shall be. But black definitely goes together with red, I would use Delta’s black.

    Love to go with Diamine’s Red Dragon
