Kiss your paper with lush ink colors created by the French. Each 30 ml bottle has a unique rectangular shape that doubles as a pen rest. Pens can balance on the flat area on the top of the bottle near the cap. These bottles are known as \"D bottle pen inks\". The “D” refers to the old French unit of measure “la Demi Courtine”.

This is my absolute favorite...

This is my absolute favorite ink! It looks like a much less saturated Noodlers Baystate Blue, but without the worries. It has nice shading and it is quite safe compared to other inks I've tried. It has the quality one would expect from a company that has been around as long as J. Herbin. The bottle's built in pen rest is quite convenient for resting one's pen on one's desk. I've bought two bottle from JetPens and will definitely buy more in the future.

I absolutely love this color. I am usually not partial to blues, but this one almost reminds me of a blue violet (a color which I absolutely love). I can tell that I will be ordering a second bottle soon, because I am sure that this ink will run out quickly.

This was my first JHerbin...

This was my first JHerbin purchase months ago and have been loyal fan since. Shade of blue is magic, especially on white white paper, actually jumps off the page. Second purchase was 1670 Anniversary Formula...equally impressed with it. Will not be without either of these in the furure. I've noticed they work equally well in all of my pens (Sheaffer, Safari, Al-Star, Kaweco), but I'm especially favorable toward the Kaweco F or M nib with Saphir refill. Writing is smooth (zero scratchiness), flow is excellent and lines are perfect thickness. To top it off, the notch in JHerbin bottle is custom made for storing a Kaweco that is loaded and ready to perform. Quality of JHerbin and JetPens goes hand-in-hand.

I borrowed this ink from...
September 28, 2010
I borrowed this ink from an uncle of mine to write a letter for a good friend overseas. I'm not a big fan of colors other than black - the richness of a good black ink makes me so happy - but when I used this I thought I had fallen in love.
The blue is, well, blue! A truly rich and wonderful one. I didn't want to let it go, but I was forced to return it to my uncle.
If you're a fan of J. Herbin and blue, I would definitely recommend that you pick this up. Your letters will be beautiful - I promise!

wonderful bright blue with vibrant color to rival Iroshizuku Asa Gao. Good flow, more saturated than some other Herbin inks
