J.herbin (The Jewel Of Inks) Bottle Caps

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I'm not sure whether anyone has ever brought this topic up before (if so, I'm sorry). I ordered J. Herbin inks in two batches, both from different retailers, and my local retailer sent me bottles with plastic caps on them whereas the one in the Netherlands sent ones with metal caps (and they had stickers on the back with serial numbers, the ones from my local retailer didn't). So I was wondering whether J. Herbin made this change (a few years back maybe? because I suspect the ones I got locally are old stock). Thank you in advance :)

I have never seen Herbin ink bottles with metal caps. The ones we get in Canada used to have caps made of a sturdy Bakelite-like plastic with a variety of attractive molded designs. Several years ago they switched to a cheaper plastic, all the same stamped design. It will be very interesting to see comments about the metal caps by people who are familiar with them.

the plastic caps I have on mine are similar to Pelikan/Cross ink bottle caps

I, too, am interested in what anybody else has to say :)

I took this photo (at a weird angle) to show the caps around here. The first three are the old caps of a plastic like the Waterman caps and the fourth one is the cheap plastic type seen more recently.

I have seen metal caps on the 100 ml bottles you can buy of some of their more popular inks, but not the regular 30 ml bottles.

Rationalizing pen and ink purchases since 1967.

Yes, thar's true. I had the 100ml in Bleu Nuit. Not really an inkwell type bottle but more like a refill to replenish a regular bottle.

      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.

      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

      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
