Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Red ink

I got enthusiastic about ink colours and I just bought Pelikan 4001 brilliant red. It is not a color that I use regular, but I felt it would be cool for occasional writing and mixing it with other ink colors.
The conclusion is that I should have read the reviews first.
Pelikan 4001 Brilliant Red Ink is a big no no. The ink has many flaws regarding color, mixing, depozits in the ink well etc.

You can make it look a lot better by mixing it, but it is not mixing well and clogs the pen.
You can see in the bottle a white deposit on the bottom of the reservoir. If you shake it, the deposit mixes, but only for a short time.

For a company that has so much tradition it is a very big disappointment. Why would you tolerate putting on the market such a bad product?
Definitely not worth buying !
