Recommended Posts

I like french inks. J. Herbin is good ink maker. Actuaaly J. Herbin is the odest ink maker on the market.

Bleu Myosotis is nice ink to write with but I don't really like the color.

I do! Needs a drier pen to prevent it being 'just another blue' but with the right level of flow it stands out from the rest.

I have it and like the understated subtlety and as a change from the very bold and confident Sailors I normally use.

When I got this one, I felt cheated...where is the ink?

 

Thank you for the great review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

That's what I feel about many J. Herbin's undersaturated inks... I bought Orange indien based on some scans and photos but it turns out to be very pale. I dislike it very much. (But my recent purchase, Diamine Pumpkin, is a new favourite!)

Opened up a bottle and it is in daily use in a M nib Aurora Talentum.

 

It's a lighter (reviews call it weaker) blue and is perfect for my quick daily notetaking and underlining for reading and studying needs.

 

Just saying.

Is it translucent enough for highlighting?

I was disappointed in this one. I thought I would love it from the reviews but it just doesn't look great in my pens and washing with water does strange things to the line.

 

I have not yet tried an Herbin blue I loved.

After sufficient drying time there will be blue ink on your yellow hi-lighter.

It was easily my least favourite brand when I started strong collecting tendencies 20 or so years ago.

 

Over time I've opened up to the lighter colours and less saturated properties of Herbin.

Herbin was actually my first favorite ink maker. I still love a lot of their inks, and Cacao du Bresil has a special place in my favorite pen. I have been less impressed with the blues, though. And don't get me started on Bouton d'Or...

Looks like blue forget-me-not flowers to me. I like it when the name of the ink is appropriate for the actual color.

I tried this years ago when it was in the heart bottle, it just didn't motivate me because I really wanted something that looked like BSB. I may try it again, if I ever become less over the top obnoxious.

The blues are all I use by Herbin, maybe some day I will go over to the red/orange/yellow spectrum...

If I had to give a brand that is the opposite of BSB, Herbin would be one up there...

Exactly! I was lured by the awesome bottle.

I read visvamitra's review, had that 'oh, yes...' reaction to the color, popped off an order, and now I'm enjoying this fine ink in a fine nib Decimo. Very smooth, lubricious without being oleaginous, and admirably tolerant of the copy paper in the office.

 

Plus there's the ongoing 'oh, yes...' reaction to the sight of the color. :)

As kids, some girls wanted to be princesses. I wanted to be Morticia Addams. Or Nikola Tesla. Preferably both.

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
