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.

The color on the top...

The color on the top is a good representation of this ink. This writes as well as you'd expect from J. Herbin, and actually probably makes crisper lines than many of their other inks (which is to say this is exceptional, because most of their inks don't bleed much at all). All in all, a great ink. I don't love the color, not because it's unattractive, but it's nothing that is surprising or unexpected.

Nice ink. Can't complain. Color is vibrant and the ink flows as it should on a variety of different paper types. Has not bled on anything I've used it for.

A favorite. Be aware that this is colorful, but not dark. Similar to the color of the ditto machine ink of my youth (spirit duplications), but sweeter. It goes on quite a bit darker than it dries.
