Traditional rocker style wooden ink blotter from J. Herbin. It is used with the J. Herbin blotting paper to blot out extra fountain pen inks when writing with pens with heavy flow (such as dipping pens and certain calligraphy fountain pens).
Great rocker blotter, I have several vintage ones, but this has become my little
go to one. It is well made and is produced in France. It is on the small side,
but a real winner in my book. Jet Pens is great, the shipping was super fast
and good tracking and emails when items are shipped.
An excellent little blotter that's well made. It helps remove the excess ink
whenever I'm about to flip a page, or if some is too wet and it smears across my
fingers. While I like inky fingertips, sometimes a little much is too much, and
this thing comes in handy.
I haven't had to replace the paper yet, but I'm a little confused as the
replacement sheets are too large, but I'll figure that out later.
At the price, it's a little pricey; I would put it at half that, maybe $20. I
know it's very well made, but it still seems a bit on the pricier side.
I use this every night after journaling.
I tend to flip pages pretty quickly to allow my creative flow little
obstruction, but that means that the ink smears onto the opposing page. With the
rocker, I can quickly soak up the ink rather than waiting for it to air dry or
having me blow on it.
A fantastic investment, and it looks great on my desk.
