  1. Since J. Herbin released the beautiful Rouge Hematite as the first in their the-new 1670 Anniversary line it has been through several iterations. The first release was, in my eyes, as close to perfection as Rouge Hematite could ever be; deep and rich without being dark or dull, shimmery and sparkly without being garish or gaudy. The ink's sheen was not simply caused by what we're all familiar with, which is sheen induced by (according to Nathan Tardif) drying ink crystalizing. Rouge Hematite had its sheeny component resting at the bottom of the gorgeous bottle waiting to be shaken—a minutes-
  2. 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
  3. Got in my Emerald of Chivor yesterday from GouletPens (lucky lucky), and I immediately shook it up, stuck a syringe way to the bottom to get the most out of the sparkles (which settles very quickly), filled the cartridge and went to town. In a Lamy Al-Star w/ 1.5mm Stub nib on Rhodia No. 16 Dot Paper. http://i.imgur.com/4mkbAaE.png A lot less sparkly and oily-red sheen than photos online, perhaps it's my paper or pen?

  5. 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.
  7. After reading many postings on this and other forums regarding J. Herbin's 1670 inks and their apparent ability to clog pens, I decided to share my experience with them after some 6 months of usage on several pens on an almost daily basis. Hope this is helpful. Like many pen enthusiasts the world over, I became truly hooked to the idea of using J. Herbin's inks after watching some videos depicting their shinning and sheening characteristics, specially those of Emaraude de Chivor, which is without a doubt, the most fascinating ink on this earth for those of us creative types (I'm a designer a

  9. As you may have noticed from my previous review (Diamine Shimmertastic Sparkling Shadows), I do not dislike that much sparkling inks, and I do not dislike sheeny inks either. For this reason I ordered online a bottle of J.Herbin 1670 Emerald of Chivoir, as I've been told to be something like "the Grail ink" for those who likes this kind of properties. I received instead Caroube du Chypre, and since I like browns, I just decided to keep it and give it a try. Caroube du Chypre is a well behaving brown, quite complicated colour, made by a prevalent ammount of magenta/red tones over the turqu

I primarily use the 1670 inks as watercolors when painting with my daughter. She likes the gold flecks, and they do make for some interesting effects, so I purchased all of the line save Stormy Grey (which is one of the worst inks I have every personally

  12. Register to get a bottle of the new J Herbin 1670 Caroube de Chypre Anniversary Ink coming this July. This brown with gold specks is the 5th edition of the 1670 Anniversary ink following Rouge Hermatite, Bleu Ocean, Stormy Grey, and Emeraude de Chivor. It comes in the same style packaing and square glass 50ml ink bottle. https://www.penchalet.com/ink_refills/fountain_pen_ink/j-herbin_1670_caroube_de_chypre_ink.html
  13. I've been playing with a dip pen to do some ornamental writing. Since there were some mixed feelings about putting the sparkle inks into FPs I decided to use my dip pen. While it wrote fine with the 1670 trying to keep the ink shaken so the metallic dust doesn't settle seems all but impossible. The result was lovely shading but not shimmer. Has anyone found a good way to keep the shimmer while using a dip pen?
  14. Hi folks, we just got back from London Stationery Show and got some amazing news for you J Herbin have announced the new colour for 1670 Anniversary range: Caroube de Chypre Here is the short info we were given by lovely people from J Herbin: "It is said that J. Herbin was very fond of dried carob pods and that is the reason he lived so long!As the other merchants sailing the Mediterranean sea, he would pick them up in Cyprus, on his way back home.The carob bean is the fruit of the carob tree and was cultivated in the Mediterranean countries since ancient times..Carob pods are known f
  15. 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

    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!

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
  17. So my best friend gifted me with a most beautiful bottle of J Herbin 1670 stormy gray and I haven't a clue as to how to open the wax seal and then how to cap it afterward. I did a search and came up with nothing. Does anyone know the trick? I almost hate to use it for fear of butchering it.
  18. I have been fortunate enough to receive a bottle of J Herbin 1670 Emerald of Chivor to review. It's my understanding that it's due to be released in August. So I'm going to write with it over several days and post my experiences on this thread. I have filled my Pilot Custom 74 M nib with it so far, so this is the pen I'm using today. However, I can easily change that M nib to a F one from my CH92, so I plan to do that as a comparison. Then I will use a different pen and nib type. First things first, this ink oozes quality. It feels beautifully smooth and lubricated from the pen. It is very

  22.

  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

  25. J HERBIN’s ROUGE HEMATITE LOOKS TO BE IN GOOD SHAPE Does an ink having more saturation than usual can have good flow properties in a pen? Can an ink having good flow properties in a pen can show no feathering/ bleeding tendencies on paper? Both anwers can be “ Yes” if you are using J Herbin’s Rouge Hematite .
