You should be able to...

You should be able to trust the reviews you read but unfortunately so many
people spoil the system with erroneous statements, flawed understanding of the
customer review process, and arbitrarily writing reviews. I beg of all the
people who love purchasing products on Jetpens to please respect this process.
It has the potential to make everyone's experience more pleasurable and feel
more secure when buying products they have never used before. It is not
difficult to leave a review that helps the process. make sure to hit these few
points and it is a successfukl review
1.) You have personally used the product. (not read about it or had a friend
tell you how much they like it)
2.) You used the product for the purpose the product was designed for and are
basing your opinion on that use.
*example would be to not like and give a bottle of ink that is not
superposed to be used for fountain pens, a terrible review because it sucked in
your Lamy Safari. That is not the fault of the product and your review would not
accurately represent the product.
3.)You are actually reviewing the product and not requesting them to restock a
product. This is completely unacceptable. I had never seen anything like it
before I started shopping on Jetpens. It ruins the rating system completely
therefore wasting the time of anyone else who has written a review for that
product and it makes it unusable to the consumer for assistance in decision
*Jetpens has a special button to request restocking issues. Please use the
correct website features for their intended purposes. This is a community where
everyone should be respected and treated the same.
If you do those things I am sure you will be helping the community instead of
harming. One final piece of advice is if your going to leave factual information
be sure you are correct. You are welcome to any opinion and that is respectable
even if one disagrees, but when what you are saying is right or wrong, do your
best to make sure your are passing along correct information
I do not usually comment on other peoples reviews in this format so please
excuse me this one time. She writes "I would rank them with Noodlers inks in
quality, but easier on the wallet" and this is not a very accurate statement. It
is actually completely off base. The price of this bottle (all prices refereed
to from this website) $9 for 30ml which equals 30 cents per ml. The price for
most regular bottles of Noodler's ink is $12.50 for 90ml. I think you an see
with out the math how much cheaper this is than our previous example, but we
will do it anyway.
$9.00/30ml=30 cents per ml
$12.50/90ml=14 cents per ml
You pay double , more than double for J.Herbin.
I am not saying that is a bad thing becasue almost every J. Herbin ink I have
used I love. I think generally speaking their inks offer more shading the any
other brand (not including Pilot iroshizuku which is also in another league
speaking of cost). Moon dust purple is one of the colors of J. Herbin that I
find unique to their brand. Which is saying a lot about anything the color of
One of the things I love most about writing with fountain pens is using bottled
ink and I especially love all of the different bottles. J. Herbin bottles are
really cool and offers a pen rest just above the front label.
