This was a color I saw used in a video and lusted after. I was pleased to see that JetPens carried the smaller bottles so I could try a few colors out. It's a beautiful golden color with a touch of a rusty undertone. Beautiful for a flex nib pen.

This is an incredibly wet ink. Super, duper, amazingly wet. I won't say it's as actively lefty hostile as the old Schaeffer Skrip formulas, but it is not a good lefty note taking ink. The color is about the most restful and readable yellow ink I've ever seen. And I am not a huge yellow fan.

All that said, I got it for drawing, and if you want a good yellow accent color, this is it. The ink has a ton of shading and character. And the color is a nice ocher or sienna sort of tone, so it will work for skin and hair highlights on a wide range of humans, and it will fit well into a lot of other kinds of art palettes. Very pretty. I haven't tested it an edged nib yet, and I kind of am afraid to. The whole lefty thing.

This color is absolutely amazing! It stands out, yet still has an earthy sophisticated tone. Not to mention the color variants when dries. It makes whatever you write effortlessly beautiful. I am hooked. Just ordered it in the cartridges for my Kaweco Skyline Sport. Can't wait!

A rich shade of gold that matches the tips on the orange Prera pen. It is a little light, however, in a fine-point nib. Shows up better in a fat, juicy nib. A very pretty color that performs very well, just like all the other J. Herbin inks I've tried.
