J. Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey - Photos


Recommended Posts

I got my hands on a bottle of a new J.Herbin anniversary ink - J.Herbin 1670 Stormy Grey - during my last trip to Paris. Here are some photos of the writing (with my Lamy 2000 EF nib), of an ink syringe splash test and of the packaging. The paper used is Rhodia dot pad and Midori lightweight paper.

The bottle has a dark grey seal and a dark grey cap with a silver rope. The box has a little silver ship on the top (Rouge Hematite has a star and Bleu Ocean has a seashell).

All the gold particles sit on the bottom, so the bottle needs to be shaken quite well before using the ink.

The amount of gold is not as heavy as in Rouge Hematite, so the ink has a very nice gold sheen to it.

The last two photos are from my Instagram (@elltbr).

Hope you enjoy my little demo of this fabulous ink!

Oh I simply cannot wait for this ink to hit to shops!!!! Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous <3

UK-based pen fan. I love beautiful ink bottles, sealing wax, scented inks, and sending mail art. Also, thanks to a wonderful custom-ground nib by forum member Bardiir, I'm currently attempting calligraphy after years of not being able to do so due to having an odd pen-grip :D

MUST. HAVE. I love grey inks, and my go-to pen is a Lamy 2000 EF. Most grey inks are hard to read from such a fine point. (I love Fuyu-Syogun but it doesn't show up very well from an EF.)


Thanks for the great pictures!

Thanks for sharing, this looks beautiful. I may need to get a bottle. And I don't even like grey. LOL

I have so many unopened bottles of ink I haven't had time to get to. I have an unopened bottle of the Rouge Hematite. I should play with that instead of buying more ink.

On another thread someone said the US release date has been pushed back to OCTOBER! :angry:

How the heck am I supposed to wait ANOTHER WHOLE MONTH?? :gaah:

Then, of course, will be the 64K question -- sample first or go whole hog and get a full bottle....
