    J Herbin — Caroube De Chypre

    http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/image_3.jpeg http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/image_2.jpeg http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/image_5.jpeg http://i900.photobucket.com/albums/ac209/jasonchickerson/image_4.jpeg This is an ink I did not expect to like or get much use. 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 tried) for this purpose. I put it in my daily carry pen to test for this review and it didn't come out for two weeks. So, not too bad. The gold shows up readily on high quality paper and almost not at all on the cheap stuff, so I didn't get any questions at work about my sparkly ink. Hue is identical to Herbin's own Terre de Feu, but Caroube is much wetter and a bit darker. In the end, I like it quite a bit. While not as exciting as Rouge Hematite or Emeraude de Chivor, it is much better behaved and much more useable on a daily basis. In case you missed it in the written review, I left the cap off my pen for four hours with Caroube inside and it started right up again. Cleaning it out of the pen took about three flushes. Brilliant. Paper is Rhodia dotpad no. 16. An attempt was made toward color accuracy.
