    Terre De Feu - J. Herbin

    J. Herbin was established in 1670. M. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom. J. Herbin is also the oldest name in ink production in the world. By 1700, the company was producing “l’Encre de la Tete Noire,” followed by “Perle des Encres,” (The Jewel of Inks) and “l’Encre des Vaisseaux” (The Ink of Ships). J. Herbin made ink for Louis XIV, and a black ink for the sole use of Victor Hugo, author of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Miserables. These formulas still reside in our company headquarters in Paris. That's what J. Herbin says about themselves. They've been on the market for quite some time and I guess they now what they're doing. Terre de Feu has nice name and ugly color.

    Gris Nuage - J. Herbin

    Thank you Mishka for sending me this sample:) http://www.jherbin.com/images/logo_ship.jpg J. Herbin is known to be the oldest name in ink production in the world, and their inks 'l'Encre de la Tete Noire", "Perle des Encres," (The Jewel of Inks) and "l'Encre des Vaisseaux" (The Ink of Ships) were produced as early as 1700.

    J.herbin- Diabolo Menthe

    J. Herbin is a French ink brand, whose history claims to date back to 1670. Besides their shimmery 1670 series and some other special editions, they also have a regular line of 30 colors. All though I'm not a big fan of J. Herbin inks, I actually quite like how they design and sell their products--- the idea is clear and the image depicted is exquisite. All J.Herbin inks are revolving around one theme: a reminiscence of 17th-19th Europe/France. There are inks for the Age of Discovery--- some named after the goods from exotic lands, such as Ambre de Birmanie, Cacao du Bresil, Orange Indien, Lie de The, Cafe de Iles, Terre du Feu, Rouge Caroubier...., and some reflecting on a sailors naval life, such as Gris Nuage, Bleu Azur, Bleu Nuit, Poussiere de lune, Rouille d'Ancre. There are also inks showing the elegant lifestyle of bourgeoisie--- Diabolo Menthe, Bouquet d'antan, Rouge Opera, and some hinting the glorious days of revolution--- Vert Empire, Violette Pensee, Larme de Cassis. And all these inks go with a specially designed bottle and package! http://i.imgur.com/j3AKcGi.jpg Each ink has its own lovely illustration. In Diabolo Menthe's case, it's a glass of diabolo menthe-- a peppermint softdrink which is popular among French students during 19th century. http://i.imgur.com/jZcBYZ8.jpg The shape of the ink bottle is similar to those that navigators use on a ship: flat, in order to stand firmly on the desk even during a storm, and with a groove(?) to hold the pen. Like this. http://i.imgur.com/CW2kP2c.jpg Diabolo Menthe, like its name and package suggest, is a VERY BRIGHT mint blue/green color. For some reason I don't know, this impractical color seems to be popular among Taiwanese FP users, and I have always thought about trying a sample some day. Recently I just received a whole bottle from my sister as a surprise gift! Yay! So here are some writing samples. ***Kind reminder: In order to protect your eyes from burning, a pair of sunglasses is highly recommended. 1. dip pen on white paper http://i.imgur.com/BjXHZxr.jpg 2. dip pen on creamy paper http://i.imgur.com/gWBxGET.jpg 3. dip pen on yellow paper(ROSSI) http://i.imgur.com/TV7qbjd.jpg 4. Dauer Feder on MUJI paper http://i.imgur.com/khpH4K5.jpg droplet on tissue paper http://i.imgur.com/zsrlrQ8.jpg Overview: Color: birght and watery, low saturation. Shading: almost none. Sheen: none. Feathering: some. Bleed-through: almost none. Show-through: none. Flow: dry, not lubricant. Water resistance: none. Conclusion: A color for summer. Probably a nice choice for marking or painting, but PLEASE REFRAIN FROM writing a whole page with this ink, let alone on exam papers/ proposals/ essays/ love letters. I'm glad I didn't pay for this bottle....

    J. Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey

    Sorry that the pictures of my last two posts had some problems showing.... This time I'm trying the "Attach files" function and photobucket, hope they both work! (they seem fine in preview, though...) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- J. Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey A grey ink with gold flakes, released in late 2014 by J. Herbin. This is my first bottle of shimmering ink, and I'm sure it will stay on my fascination list for a while. Look at the box and bottle design---even if you are not actually using the ink, it makes perfect decoration on the desk. It's said that the 1670 bottles are handmade, thus imperfectly shaped. I love this. (and I accidentally cracked the seal) There is a thick layer of gold flakes. I tried to take a picture of it but it sank really fast.... ....and formed an interesting pattern.... On cheap calculating paper, with Noodler's Creaper: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm08_zpshyqjzjqq.jpg the color is a pure and clean grey, comfortable to read. When it dries, it gets a little brownish or purplish, depends on the paper you use. I didn't give it enough shake, so there weren't a lot of gold flakes here. Only visible at certain angles, http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm10_zpsbs4vm1rx.jpg or under sun light: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm09_zpseoitpgrr.jpg And here is what it looks like if you get too many gold flakes: (with dip pen, on sketch paper) http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm11_zpsmb6npe2m.jpg You get a thick layer of gold shimmer..... and the grey ink vanishes. BTW, the bottom line is a diluted version; kind of looks purplish. And on another grid paper, with Noodler's Creaper again: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm12_zpser4abb8j.jpg close-up 1: the shades http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm14_zps70ci3zed.jpg close-up 2: shimmer shows when tilting the paper. http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm15_zpsepobt7qx.jpg close-up 3: more shimmering http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm16_zpsyzxr4wtn.jpg Water resistance test, on MUJI grid paper with dip pen: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm13_zpsovc5rkjo.jpg Unintentional ink drops: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm17_zps1o2xdwkp.jpg Doodle with syringe, water, and Noodler's Creaper: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm18_zpsfag4kzkd.jpg http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm20_zps9yair86e.jpg http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm19_zpsmkwkgzis.jpg http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm21_zpsnpfbyf37.jpg http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm22_zpsrnblcjmi.jpg AAAAAND notice the brown/bronze sheen!! (Not gold flakes) I love it but it doesn't appear all the time. And on tissue paper: http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu239/chingdamosaic/1670storm23_zpstjul6iae.jpg I'm surprised at the blue and violet hue, because so far these two colors never show on any pen/paper I try with. Conclusion: Very nice ink, with good flow, practical color and beautiful shimmer. Not very hard to clean from the pen. Great decoration on the desk. Recommend!! BUT if you are specifically looking for a "grey ink with gold shimmer," maybe you should check out Diamine Sparkling Shadows first, because I've seen more than one review states that its flow and flakes perform better than J.Herbin Stormy Grey. Thanks for watching this photo-heavy review! I'll end this with an Instagram-filtered pic: For more detailed Chinese review: http://chingdamosaic.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-55.html

Herbin offers 30 standard colors: http://imageshack.com/a/img910/1839/N2gPxp.jpg Additionally every year J. Herbin offers 1670 ink: Rouge Hematite Ocean Blue Stormy GreyThe inks collected in the series have great bottles and contain "goldish" particles. Emeraud de Chivor is quite intriguing. I was sure I wouldn't like it. People would try to talk me into it but I and teals / dark turquoises don't go well together. Surprisingly I find it quite elegant and what I like about my bottle is the fact it seems to contain less "goldish" particles than Bleu Ocean or Rouge Hematite. I haven't shaken the bottle so you won't see amazing effects in my review. But I prefer it this way.

He added a note written with Montblanc Meisterstuck 134 from 1930's. I hope he won't mind I reproduce this part of his note but I find it fascinating how different effects we can have depending on the pen / ink / paper combo. http://imageshack.com/a/img909/1217/Ue835I.jpg http://imageshack.com/a/img912/1235/A787X6.jpg And to finish a photo of the sheen.

    http://www.jherbin.com/images/logo_ship.jpg J. Herbin was established in 1670. M. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom. J. Herbin is also the oldest name in ink production in the world. By 1700, the company was producing “l’Encre de la Tete Noire,” followed by “Perle des Encres,” (The Jewel of Inks) and “l’Encre des Vaisseaux” (The Ink of Ships). J. Herbin made ink for Louis XIV, and a black ink for the sole use of Victor Hugo, author of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Miserables. These formulas still reside in our company headquarters in Paris. At the moment company belongs to Exaclair Inc, that has rights to brands like Clairefontaine, Rhodia, Brause or G. Lalo. J. Herbin offers 30 standard colors: http://www.zany.co.nz/Images/Assets/2555912/6/J+Herbin+Fountain+Pen+Ink++Available+in+30+Colours.jpg Ambre de Birmanie Bleu Azur Bleu Myosotis Bleu Nuit Bleu Pervenche Bouquet d'Antan Bouton d'Or Cacao du Bresil Cafe des Iles Diabolo Menthe Eclat de Saphir Gris Nuage Larmes de Cassis Lie de The Lierre Sauvage Orange Indien Perle Noire Poussiere de Lune Rose Cyclamen Rose Tendresse Rouge Bourgogne Rouge Caroubier Rouge Opera Rouille d'Ancre Terre de Feu Vert Empire Vert Olive Vert Pre Vert Reseda Violette Pensee I received a sample of Bouton d'Or from Michael R..

  19. I have decided to review some of my inks. These aren't necessarily in any particular order. This one is J Herbin Rouge Opera Sorry I forgot to do the water test on this form, but this isn't a waterproof inkBearing in mind the paper I use is very smooth, this ink took 16-18 secs to dry.It flows reasonably wet and lubricates the nib quite well.It is currently available in packs of 4 x 10ml small glass bottles and 30ml glass bottles.It's available from many B&M shops and online retailers worldwide.

    Five Turquoises

    Actually it won't be about turquoises, not in encyclopedical understanding of what turquoise actually is. Pure turquoise looks like that http://imageshack.com/a/img404/7428/ei21.jpg www.barwy.net Blue turquoise like that: http://imageshack.com/a/img706/1729/22ng.jpg www.barwy.net Anyway I've tried to compare five inks whether called whether considered turquoises. Their colors are bright and quite saturated. To be honest I don't like pure turquoise - I like however to fill my fountain pen with vibrant shade of blue. I compared five inks: BLEU PERVENCHE (J. Herbin), BLU MARE (Rohrer & Klingner), HIMMELBLAU (Standardgraph), NIEBIESKI TURKUSOWY (Nicpoń*), TURQUOISE (Pelikan). * Nicpoń is chemistry PhD Student that's active on Polish fountain pen network. He'c created limited line of nice, saturated inks in many colors. 1. Swabs on Mondi 90 g paper http://imageshack.com/a/img811/6673/qy1b.jpg 2.

Dry Times (Pilot 78 g witb B nib on copy paper): http://imageshack.com/a/img819/5915/flpn.jpg SUMMARY: I find it difficult to indicate the winner. I guess Pelikan Turquoise deserves to take this place - it's good ink, it has reasonable price and is easily accesible around the world. Blu Mare is really nice and intense though it's not easily seen on the scans. Niebieski Turkusowy looks really good and it behaves well in fountain pen. However it's not easy to buy this ink as it is not produced for mass market.
