An expensive way to buy, but a good way to try out a variety of new inks in several pens

Bureau Direct are offering 4 x 10ml bottles of any of the Herbin colours as a set at £13.95

 

http://www.bureaudirect.co.uk/j-herbin-tube-of-four-inks/p3793

You can have 4 x 30 ml bottles for EUR 19.50 and get 15% discount on that this week if you buy at La Couronne du Comte.... No affilliation, apart from being a happy customer...

Any dealers in U.S. that offer similar ways of trying ink? I am just starting to experiment with different inks and this would be perfect. Thank you

I'm the UK so not best person to advise but I know that Goulet Pens sells small samples, and possibly also Isellpens.com? I'm sure your compatriots will be able to advise.

I found the 4 for 3 offer but is there a code for the 15%?

Hello Marie,

 

That sounds like a tempting offer. I have J. Herbin's 1670 blue ink and I love both the ink and the bottle it is in.

 

There is a nice little story on how I got the bottle.

 

When I visited my hometown Breda (in the Netherlands) last year's february I bought a nice Parker Premier Fountain Pen at the local Fountain Pen store 'tschrijfgereitje" The owner let me choose a free bottle of Ink (very nice service). I chose a bottle of Parker Quink Blue Ink. Unfortunately the NIB on my Parker was/got a bit bended, this made it write very scratchy. When I went back to Breda (I come there 3 times a year), I took my FP to the store again. I could pick up my Parker the next day. Repaired and fully serviced.... Free of charge :)

 

Being satisfied with the service I bought a Pelikan M800 green striped Fountain Pen (advise do not do this to often because these category of fountain pens ruin your budget :) )

 

And again te shop keeper offered me a free bottle of ink.. (the J. Herbin)... Very nice service, they have a webshop too but I do not know if you get a free bottle of ink if you order in the webshop) www.tschrijfgereitje.nl

 

Back on topic J Herbin inks are very nice (though a bit dry in comparison wit D-A inks).... Do you have any suggestion on what colour?

 

I am curious to hear about your favorite J. Herbin Inks

 

Kind regards,

What wonderful service! Quite unusual these days. Although it is noticeable that fountain pen sellers tend to score highly in the traditional "good service" stakes :) I myself especially rate Le Couronne du Comte - all their packages are so beautifully wrapped, quickly despatched and they are very responsive to any queries.

 

Re J Herbin inks the colour that stands out a mile for me is Eclat de Saphir. I love it. I'm also fond of Bleu Pervenche and Poussiere De Lune. All three perform well in the right pens.

Thanks to the information given to me in this thread, I placed an order with La Couronne du Comte but just in case anyone else wants to place an order I can advise that Poussière de Lune is currently out of stock and is expected in about 2 weeks.

I've not really seen anything in the US Aside from GouletPen's 2ml samples.

 

All the J.Herbin samples they offer at 1.25 per 2ml.

Hrm that they do, $4.75 each (most look sold out).

http://www.jetpens.com/Bottled-Inks/ct/1779?f=73691245c66ed0071d27ee8b00f3a4bb&pn=1&sa=price&so=1&ip=24

 

So Goulet for 0.62 per ml, or JetPen for 0.47 per ml. (Though a 30ml bottle from Goulet is 0.33 per ml, but you don't get free shipping over $25 like JetPen offers).

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
