Pack of six international short sized J. Herbin Fountain Pen ink cartridges. Other colors available.

J. Herbin was established in 1670 and is the oldest name in formal ink production in the world. It is the ink namesake used by renowned figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Victor Hugo of Les Miserables.

The "Jewel of Inks" series from J. Herbin was created by M. Herbin in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700. Now you can capture a moment of this history with these high-quality ink cartridges at JetPens.

Ink features:

- Non toxic and pH neutral

- Lightfast

- Water based

- Flows smoothly and fast drying

- All natural dyes


If exposed to extremely cold weather for a long time, ink inside new cartridges is likely to freeze, expand, and push out the stopper, causing cartridges to leak.

This is one of my top two favorite inks from J. Herbin. It's much more red toned than pictured; it's the exact color of fresh raspberries. Best described as a 'mature' pink. Flows beautifully and bleeds almost none even with a medium nib and 'economy' paper.

I am a noob. I've tried out about a dozen inks in both cartridge and bottled. This is my favorite ink. Its purple without being bright or flamboyant. I use it for work. I've always used blue or black in the past.

Another lovely Herbin ink. Although cartridges are pricey, they are a nice way to try out an ink. This one is going in my wish list in the 30ml bottle. Lovely and well-behaved ink.
