Default Bright red or bright pink?

This is supposed to be a red but once it's finished, it appears to be more pink than red. Still looks amazing either way.

It’s clearly “lightish red”:

lightish red
The color pink, especially when worn by a man who doesn't want to admit he's actually wearing pink. Popularized by the machinima Red vs Blue, in which Pvt. Donut wears this color.
Donut: It's not pink, it's like a... a lightish red.
Grif: Guess what, they already have a color for lightish red. You know what it's called? Pink.
Donut: ...I hate you guys.

Grif: Donut, I understand the need to safeguard your masculinity, but really man, it's a whole faster just to say pink.

Whatever color you call it, it looks great! I really like the semi-transparent acrylics so it becomes sort of a demonstrator pen. I assume there’s some method to such clean internal machining?

Love your, Spectacular, Pink, Semi Transparent, Pen Mike.
Nicely Turned, Beautifully Finished.
It is hard to see Profile and Proportions, with the "End On" Photographs, but from what I can see, it looks like they are Excellent.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?
