I am not happy with this ink; I wanted it for a Lamy F, but it's too dry and pale. I put it in my Lamy Safari EF and it's better, as that pen is more of a wet writer and so it lays down more pigment, but I don't use my EF as often; I write extensively each day with my Lamy Fs and wanted to use this ink for that, but it's just too hard on the eyes. I have heard some say it looks like graphic markings, and I have to agree, looks like I've written the page in pencil. I will finish this bottle in my EF, but don't think I'll be ordering this again. Ah well. :(

I love this particular color for drawing on Cachet Recycled Sketch Book paper. It's the same middle tan color as the paper only a few shades darker. It appears as more of a warm mid to dark grey than brown. Think of the 'french grays' and this is no surprise coming from J.Herbin! I love J. Herbin inks and this color is one of my top favorites!

It's lighter than many brown inks, especially dry, but not so light that it's illegible. I'll finish this bottle, but try for a darker brown next time around. It's one of my first J. Herbin inks, but not my last.

I wrote a review two days ago but I'd like to amend what I wrote; I don't see a way to edit my already-published review. I consider myself still a novice to fountain pens, and some of my problem with the Cacao du Bresil is that I was trying to use what is a fairly dry ink in a dry-writing pen, which is why I was unhappy with the way it imparted so little pigment on the page, like writing lightly with a pencil. My Pilot Metropolitan is what I would call a "wet writer" and so I put the CDB in that, and I'm much happier with the result. So try it in some different pens!
