Personally all four are rather uninspiring and I can’t see how they are “very distinct shades”. I actively hate at least two of the colours already so I picked the one I dislike the least: Fir Green.

If you're thinking of Perle Noire, Lie de Thé, etc. they don't belong under the Jacques Herbin brand, but its sister brand Herbin. In the same vein, Graf von Faber-Castell and Faber-Castell are related but separate brands.

As always:  1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment.  2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published.  3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

Which is a rather new development though. When did they split? Last year?

Thanks OP for posting this link. I went with the Fir Green as it's the only one I think I would use regularly. I love dark green inks.

I am looking forward to this ink and wonder how it'll be packaged. They say it'll have gold and silver glitter, so it fits neither into the 1670 line nor the 1798....

 

Their "split" is also quite confusing to the consumer it seems, not sure how good an idea that was...

More than 1000 people voted, the winner is fir green.

This will not be the name, the name will be announced in due course.

Well, like I said earlier: my general response to the 1670 and 1798 inks have been hit or miss.  I'd have to see the final product (and whether it will be gold or silver sheen) but overall I suspect I'd take a pass.  Just happy it wasn't the other green....

Glad it was Fir Green -- depending on how it ends up, I might get a bottle.

As per initial statement, it'll have both gold and silver glitter.
