J. Herbin Dip Pen Ink - 50 ml Bottle - Calligraphy Ink - Blue
 - J. HERBIN H114-10
5/8/2014
Tested with a Tachikawa G and a Brause Bandzug on bristol board. From the swatch, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about the color. It turned out to be just what I was looking for, like a Prussian/ midnight blue. One thing you definitely can't see from the swatch is that at the right angle this ink shimmers with a reddish/ magenta sheen. It was a pleasant surprise. The description is correct. The adhesion and flow are very nice. The ink seemed to hang tight to the pen but just flowed, not too much though. A broad edged nib also lays down this ink nicely. It did take a little to clean up my Brause nib, but the pauses might have been too long. I like it.

About J. Herbin

J. Herbin was established in 1670. M. Herbin was a sailor who traveled the world. It was from his travels in India that he found the formulas for manufacturing sealing wax that he brought back to Pairs. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness and helped him become famous throughout the country.

J. Herbin is the oldest name in ink production in the world. Its 340th anniversary ink in rouge hematite is a popular collector's item at JetPens.
