  1. what is the most efficient ways to test all the fountain pen inks available and to make a like for like comparison? For instance i have tested Waterman, Herbin, Viscontini and Diamine but the shade of colour vary a great deal i like Visconti Bordeuax as a red but on other days i may like Diamine Oxblood but i like the wetness of a waterman red ink. I aim to reduce to a set number of of inks, so a maximum of two for each of the colours Red, Green, Blue, Black.for daily use. 1 unique colour such as an orange/brown/purple for journal writing. let me know your ideas thanks
  2. I found a stash of old reviews that got misplaced during a house move, so this one's a bit old. Rouille D'ancre is one of my favorite "not for everyday use" inks. It's a bit dry when writing, but this color is completely unique. http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/673/93tSKo.jpg
  3. Close but not the same. Look at the chromo's! J Herbin Vert Pre Diamine Spring Green
  4. Greentings! MB Irish Green is my absolutely favorite green ink. However, the surplus of this ink in local boutiques is unstable and they often don’t have it available. On the other hand, the famous international store, where I frequently make purchases doesn’t carry MB inks. Could you please advice an ink similar in color and shading to the subject? In the first place from the range of Diamine, J.Herbin and other major brands present in Europe and the UK. (no Noodlers though! these inks are out of my reach) Thanks!
  5. Hello there, here is my first review for a wonderful ink. Hope you enjoy Armand.D Pictures : http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2015/31/1438347092-review-herbin-re-2.jpg http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2015/31/1438347102-img-0315.jpg http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2015/31/1438347109-img-0317.jpg

    J. Herbin - Éclat De Saphir

    Hi all, Four-year pause, I am back to the forum at last. And i'd like to introduce you my first ever ink review. Actually it's not a review, it's just a scribble. I am a true amateur and sorry for my terrible handwriting. Next time i'll try macro shoot. By the way if the topic is inappropriate, moderators can move it or delete... J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir is my second ink after Waterman Absolute Brown. and the pen is also my favourite type, Scrikss 17 with a Fine nib. Hope you like it...

    8 “Pinkish” Inks

    I've been wanting to try some kind of pinkish ink for a while. I didn’t want a pastel or cotton-candy pink, but other than that I was pretty open, so after going through the FPN boards and using the Goulet swatch tool, the eight finalists ranged from burgundy to magenta to purplish and reddish pinks: Diamine Syrah, Pilot Iroshizuku Yama-Budo, Rohrer & Klingner Magenta, Rohrer & Klingner Solferino, J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen, Pilot Iroshizuku Tsutsuji, J. Herbin Rouge Bourgogne, and Rohrer & Klingner Fernambuk. Although I liked some of the colors, I didn’t see myself using pink enoug

Thank you so much for the chance to try this amazing thing! http://kephost.com/images/2015/07/23/fd647a72e524b34242c990854cfa216c.jpg http://kephost.com/images/2015/07/23/f9037bf64160cdc716cd61f9ed592190.jpg ^Tomoe River paper The process of filling up pens with this and the Stormy Grey is pretty much the same.

  9. Hi folks, I don't know about you, but I have heard some rumours that J Herbin was reformulating Ocean Blue ink...must have been Stormy Grey's success So, I was expecting blue ink with silver particles...but it looks like they have opted out for gold... No indication on the bottle (of course) Here are few quick snaps of their very last batch:

    J Herbin Emerald Of Chivor 1670

    I recently received a sample of this ink. I don't normally go for glitter inks and I wouldn't get this one. It's not bad at all, and the flow is very good. Since this was a sample I can't say whether I received the proper amount of glitter bits. It sheens amazingly on Tomoe River. Pen: Edison Premiere (M-steel) Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory. Camera: iPhone 7 No sheen on MvL or Hij. A feeble attempt to capture the sheen. It's much more dramatic in the flesh.
  11. It's time for another Ink Giveaway PIF! I am giving away a nearly full bottle of J. Herbin Orange Indien ink. This ink is similar to the OMAS Orange I gave away in an earlier PIF, but is a little less saturated. Here are the rules: 1) United States only. 2) Winners of my previous PIFs (Levenger and OMAS inks) are not eligible for this PIF. 3) Everyone who posts on this thread saying they want the ink through Tuesday, January 3, 2017 is eligible. 4) On January 4, 2017 I'll post here to close the PIF and everyone ahead of me in the thread will be entered. I'll select a winner using
  12. We currently have the latest ink from J. Herbin "Caroube de Chypre" in stock. Its a gorgeous heavily saturated ink with a mixture of dark brown and red hues completed with a sparkling gold effect. Make sure to shake the ink well before filling your pen and consider using a type of paper that is not too absorbent, to get the most out of this beautiful ink.

    J. Herbin Black Question

    So one of my favorite fountain pen inks out there as far as black is concerned is J.Herbin Perle Noire. IMO it writes like silk no matter which pen I put it in. Just one question: does anybody else find that this particular ink tends to leak in the cap more often than others? Do you find your nib to be exceptionally wet with this particular black? Any insights would be great!
  14. Just in case you need a nice summertime fix of very pretty brown n gold ink! http://www.gouletpens.com/j-herbin-caroube-de-chypre-1670-anniversary-ink/p/H150-45 Images http://cdn-tp1.mozu.com/6639-8588/cms/8588/files/d083f655-a3e4-430f-91b9-c91f4ec3cb0d/ http://cdn-tp1.mozu.com/6639-8588/cms/8588/files/2317d2a9-56bd-4256-baab-803782e93fef/
  15. Here's one I found interesting. I've only played with J. Herbin's 1670 series of inks, so it was nice to try something a bit more conventional. I had bought an empty bottle just for the style. I'm surprised I was able to get so much leftover ink out of it.
  16. My current research led me to a kind of "what's hot"/guide book on the must-visit shops and most notable people of Paris in 1692. There is a very small section on writing and stationery shops and within that section a page that I think many of us would have earmarked back in the day; pen and ink aficionados never change Here's a loose translation of the entire short passage: At [the house named] 'l'Image Saint François', on rue Saint André next to the bridge Saint Michel, there is a stationer famous for the good ink (la bonne encre), for precision pen knives and for sharpened quills. I hav
  17. Hi, we have just got in a sample of J Herbin's Emerald of Chivor ink and it deserves a quick review. I will say this up front : this one is a game changer. J Herbin caused a revolution last year with Stormy Grey. The anticipation was incredible, the sales were over the roof...and mostly...it got people talking and writing again. Turns out, Stormy Grey was just the beginning. This year J Herbin have opted for a green coloured ink with gold specs. Here is the official info: After the 1670 Hematite Red, Ocean Blue and Stormy Grey, we now have Chivor Emerald.In the middle of the XVI century
  18. Here's my review of the new version of J. Herbin Bleu Ocean 1670 that contains the long awaited gold pigment. As far as appearances go, the new version looks worlds better just with the inclusion of the gold, but it's still nowhere near as well behaved as Rouge Hematite. But it's definitely worth the money just based on its uniqueness! Here's my review of the original Bleu Ocean 1670 formula (please scroll all the way down for a more recent scan as the old scan has a horrible magenta color cast and isn't accurate), here's my review of the related Stormy Grey 1670, and here's my review of Rou

    J Herbin: Poussiere De Lune

    This may seem like a strange question but is J Herbin's Poussiere de Lune actually made out of moondust? I ask, as every online store on the internet both in the UK (and even Lacouronne du Comte) seems to be out of stock. I've been told the restocking times could be anything from one week to three months (Lacouronne du Comte informed me that their distributors are on holiday!!!). So I've bought a 10ml bottle on ebay for now and gone with a replacement colour at LdC as they'd already taken payment prior to contacting me. Is this colour that popular or are J Herbin phasing this colour out?

    J. Herbin 50Ml 1670 Massdrop

    Massdrop is doing a new drop for J. Herbin's 1670 anniversary inks - 2 bottles of Stormy Grey and one of Rouge Hematite. Direct link: here. Space is limited, 150 available. Well, 149 now. ^_^
  21. I found a stash of old reviews that got misplaced during a house move, so this one's a bit old. Still a great ink though! http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/913/XQv830.jpg
  22. I love inks that are wet and easy to clean, so I’ve accumulated more than half of the Herbin line. And, blue is the color I use most often in my daily writers, so I thought it would be fun to do a comparison of the Herbin blues: Bleu Nuit, 1670 Bleu Ocean, Bleu Pervenche, Bleu Azur, Bleu Myosotis and Eclat de Saphir. I use all of them regularly with the exception of Bleu Azur (which I ordered a sample of to add to this comparison). The comparison was done using a Pelikan 400NN F nib on Rhodia. Ink Swabs: Ink on Paper Towel: Top Row: Bleu Nuit, 1670 Bleu Ocean, Eclat de Saphir Bo
  23. I used a dip nib with Stormy Grey this morning for the first time. Its a very very wet ink! It also feathered on Rhodia as a result. Based on experiments here https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/283167-glitteratipearlmica-and-e415/page-2 I trialled the Experiment 6 concentrate in J Herbin Stormy Grey. Here are the results. Pics of vial bases are just 1 min after shaking. In cases of direct comparison, the first pic is Stormy Grey a la naturel, the second pic is Stormy Grey x Xanthan concentrate blend. The Xanthan blend feathers less and offers far better gold distribut
